PSA: Sleep Apnea (Follow-up)

By | February 23, 2011

So a few months ago I posted about sleep apnea and my experiences in getting diagnosed and treated.
It’s been about 3 months now and I have to say it took about 2 months to totally get used to the mask at night (see pic). One thing for me that was interesting is that it cured my insomnia right off the bat. I actually looked forward to sleeping again.

Opus 360

Some things I didn’t expect was to be exhausted during the transition. Maybe it was the adjustment to the mask, maybe it was playing sleep catch up? I don’t really know.
Now that some time has passed a can say that my morning headaches are a thing of the past. I feel rested, not hating the world when I get up. I can honestly say that it has been a game changer at home and with the kids. Not so much crabby daddy anymore.
This whole thing was definitely worth the trouble even though having the mask on is less than attractive.

Now my only worry is getting my CPAP through security at the airport (in a few weeks).
