My machine



Recommended Posts

Well, I had my sleep test done in May and I have sleep apnea. I got my machine this past Thursday. I "slept" with it first time on Friday night. Needless to say I do not like this thing!!! LOL! I know it is something i have to get use to for now but I am really not liking it. I woke up 3 times out of my sleep last night and two of those times I took the thing out of my nose as if it wasnt suppose to be there LOL! I have the one that goes in your nose and not the complete mask covering your nose , thought the less on my face the better. I am really praying this surgery makes the sleep apnea go away. Just a small vent! Have a good weekend all!

I completely understand about the machine. When I was diagnosed with it, I got the machine and tried several different masks. However, I needed to use the full face one, because I'm a mouth breather at night. Short story, I tried it for a year and felt that it wasn't doing me any good (in fact, I felt MORE tired while using it). So, I stopped using it.

Although, I know several people that it does help. I hope it does help you. And they say that the sleeve does help with sleep apnea...

I also have used the nose piece with cpap machine. I take it off every night so far also. My husband has said, even without the mask, I snore less with my 20 lbs loss.

YES! I feel more tired with this machine than without. Last night I actually took it off and just slept normal. My hubby was like what are you doing, and I said getting a good nights sleep. LOL!

Hopefully you will be able to come off the machine. I'm praying I am very soon.

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
