Can I get an APAP?
People, I am 5'8" and 140 lbs. But yet I have sleep apnea. Robin begged/dragged me to going to a doc and getting an APAP machine (automatic positive airway pressure). I was very skeptical.
But man! It really works. I am sleeping deeper, and for longer continuous periods of time. I am waking up more refreshed. I rarely need a nap during the day anymore.
Before I would wake up like 5 or 6 times during the night, either choking from the apnea or from Robin waking me to say my snoring was driving her nuts. Even when I was sleeping, if Robin got up to use the bathroom, I'd usually wake up because I wasn't sleeping deeply.
Now I'm routinely sleeping 6 or 7 straight hours without waking up.
So big ups to Mrs. Angus for getting me to try this solution.
ps. I'm pretty sure Mungo uses a CPAP machine. Maybe he will share his testimony.
