Getting tested with a CPAP machine this weekend. Not looking forward to it. Went for a sleep and apnea testing a couple months back, it was the worst night since my surgery. I couldn’t get to sleep til after 2:30, from a 10:00 lights out. About ten electrodes on my head and chest – and face – some held with globs of green paste like stale wasabi. Couldn’t move much from on my back – and I never sleep on my back. Even in the hospital after my surgery, when I could I’d curl onto my side.
Just have to let myself relax and think pleasant thoughts – which, along with sleeping on my back, I never do.
It’s going to be in the hospital I was in with my heart attack. When I was there for my first test, my mind wasn’t really making the connection, which is a good thing.
People who have used the machine, and people who know people who do, tell me it can renew. I wonder if when I look back on this year’s 365 blogs, my tiredness the past month with be glaring obvious.
