No sleep....

I had a horrible weekend of sleep! It is bad enough that I suffer from sleep apnea... then to not be able to shut down the 3 brain cells I have left made me exhausted!
So many tings ran thru mymind that I couldn't keep track of them all.
Wondering if anyone else suffers from sleep apnea? Let me know and let me know what helps you.
I did go fishing with a friend yesterday for a little while... that was fun.... we had not had any down time together in awhile so I really enjoyed it!!

You need a CPAP machine first. Call your doc and get a sleep study done (insurance is really handy with this one). It will make all the difference in the world. Other things that help are losing weight and exercise. Might also want to try food allergy testing. You'd be amazed at what really bugs you when you've only known it as normal. The only other thing I can think of is to sleep like the astronauts. LOL.

I have never heard the word apnea before what does it mean?
I suffer from insomnia.Cant sleep much.It helps to do some aerobic after a warm bath and then read a good book.

Sleep apnea is when you related to snoring and actually stopping breathing while you sleep. never falling into what they call R.E.M. sleep.

If you are put on a c-pap machine by the Dr. The hose will drive you nuts. I found a device that fixed the brob. but good. You will find it at Its light, it comes apart ,hides during the day and it fits right in the case with my machine. With out it I would have stopped the machine. Good luck, it was a war for me.
