I pooped at 2 am this morning!

Friday, April 21, 2017

The alternate title might have "what the frack? Spark People giving out awards for logging in one day in a row?" but I failed to figure out at first glace how to post a pic from my spark gallery into a blog, so I went with the poop.

And I didn't do that just to titillate (although it's a fair question if feces are titillating or just disgusting), but rather because while I was sitting there on the pot, idly wondering if the squatty potty really works and allows one to squeeze out rainbows, and whether starbucks might have got the idea for their latest drink from those commercials, I realized something else - I haven't got up in the middle of the night to pee in nearly 6 weeks.

That, of course, corresponds with when I started using a CPAP machine for treating sleep apnea. And nighttime urination is one of the symptoms of that, as the lack of breathing somehow contributes to the lessening of anti-diuretic hormones. So I was getting up once or twice a night to pee, feeling tired during the day all the time, as really, has been the case for many years, etc, etc, and I finally got that checked out and addressed.

Granted, there's still insomnia issues that mean I'm not quite getting the sleep I really need, but what I am getting isn't interrupted by stopping breathing 30+ times an hour. Which is a good thing.

And just in case you haven't been exposed to this awesomeness, the squatty potty commercial is linked below. It's a doozy.

Also, weight is 220.2. Can't really recall if that's up or down from last time I mentioned it.
