Sleep Apnea

I’m super excited to announce that I’ve now been diagnosed with sleep apnea!

(Cue the sarcasm)

I have been pretty down.  I feel like I can’t catch a break.  Good news is that the diagnosis is for a mild sleep apnea.  Bad news, I still need to try a c-pap because of my excessive daytime sleepiness.

I’m fighting the sleepies, but I am STRUGGLING… and now I feel like this has been going on for so LONG that I’m just discouraged.  Momma Bear and Joker keep reminding me that this is a step in the right direction… but I’m not so sure that life is going to get better.  😦

My anxiety has been affected as well.  This past week I had one of the WORST panic attacks that I have ever had.  I have had GI upset and vomitted several times.  I’m either a zombie, a wreck or a-sleep.

Sigh, I really hope things start looking up soon!

  1. At least you have the diagnosis and you can work from there.

    I slept with a C-PAP for 10 years, and it was the best sleep of my life. (Then I lost enuf weight that I didn’t need the device any longer.)

    I hope this works for you.

      Paul, thank you for the kind words. I’m so happy to hear that there might be a light at the end of this tunnel. I just have to wait for the insurance to decide that they are gonna pay and get the machine to the house!
