Moany Groany


Oxygen is highly underrated.
I use a CPAP every night, and mine, I guess, has been failing, either that or my need is greater than when I first got it.
I need to have another sleep study to determine the appropriate level of pressure. (Appointment is in the works, it just takes time.)

I have not been sleeping well, but last night was the corker.
I kept stopping breathing in the night, and waking up with adrenaline coursing through me, usually accompanied by horrible nightmares of being chased, or choked, or drowning.
Yuck.

My IQ has lowered a good bit for today, so all knitting will be the easiest possible, and writing fiction right out the window.

I'd take a nap. but I think that would just make things worse. While I am awake, I keep breathing, you see.

{{{{{hugs}}}}} Get that done fast! Lack of air is a baddd thing! Granted, I'm fuzzy myself today due to a headache.

Breathe,grrl! Would it help to sleep propped up? Probably not with your other owies.

Soon, get an appointment soon!!!

BTDT, with DH. As you have furkins in the house, have you checked the hose for teeny tooth marks? Doesn't take much for an oxygen hose to defunct when the critters start even thinking about chewing on them... and double-check the connection.
(today at WF, they couldn't figure out why the computer wouldn't display on the wall, until I asked if it was plugged in..... it wasn't)......
