CPAP

Many of my friends have been wondering how I have been doing on the CPAP machine. I am now into my third week on it and information downloaded from the machine last week said that I no longer have apnoea's. I am still tired but not as tired as what I used to be. When I am falling asleep at work I have forced myself to get up and climb the stairs to wake me up a bit. Doing something different normally helps.

The mask I have is a second one. The first one just sat in your nose and kept falling out every time I moved. The mask I have now covers the nose. If it moves it is usually OK but last night it kept moving to a point where the rubber cover would vibrate with the pressure of the air and wake me up. I think I must have woken more often with that than I did with the apnoea's. Oh well like I said at least I am not as tired. I still feel tired at the wheel but my vision doesn't blur which is good (touch wood).

Speaking of driving it is time to get to work.

Glad it's going well and that the aponeas are gone.
