First, thank you for the notes on my previous entry. I know that things may not have turned out differently, but it was something that had been on my mind a lot.
Yesterday I left work early to pick up my newest night time partner.
I was diagnosed a couple weeks ago with moderate sleep apnea during a home sleep study. After fighting with my insurance company I was able to pick up my CPAP machine yesterday.
It’s going to be a huge adjustment getting use to that thing. I didn’t like the air blowing in my face or having that mask strapped to my face. Hopefully, it won’t take long to get adjusted to it and it actually helps me sleep.
I felt like there wasn’t a whole lot of sleep going on last night because I either couldn’t get comfortable or I kept adjusting the mask.
I’m really hoping tonight will go better (since I’m exhausted) and I’ll have an easy restful sleep. Everyone I’ve talked to said they sleep so much better with their machine and that once I get used to it I won’t ever want to sleep without it again. I hope that ends up being true and that it helps with my PAH.
