I'm sorry you have to deal with this at all.
That's true. You are so right.

I might get a friend to help me on the computer.
She's calm anyway -- nothing riles her.
She especially does not get emotional about using a computer for something
that I need.

1. I last had a pdoc I absolutely loved 20 years go. I really think he
was a genius.

2. After that, at one point I had a pdoc that I trusted and that I felt was good
for me even though he might have been a bit of an "asss" in real life outside the office.
He went to work at a mental hospital and dropped my insurance.

3 After that I went through a series of shiiitttty pdocs.

4 Current doc I trust.

I had a really bad day Sunday. Work up feeling worse than I did before I slept.

I felt awful after sleeping so I called my sis to talk about cpap -- she has one two.
She was somewhat helpful but it was a short convo.


Hubby went to the pharmacy to buy cortizone -- the cpap mask is sort
of chewing up the part of my face it sits on -- the mask leaves marks
and my skin gets raw.
That was hours ago and now I notice the cortizone seemed to help.

But I stayed up late doing work and now I have to go to bed.

Mood is better than it was a few hours ago.

I'm glad that your mood and the irritation to your face improved a little.
Have you ever thought of trying the CPAP "mask" that are just nose padse?

Kay,

I tried that for a few moments in the sleep lab. I immediately freaked out.
. . . felt claustrophobic. The bigger issue is that the mask has
to cover my mouth and nose.


Sometimes the marks from the straps bother me too.


=-=-=-

At work, I canceled my last class and kind of faked my way
through the three earlier classes (Make them sort of do work -- not much but enough work that it felt like work to them.)



=-=-=-=-
Something took off in me and made me not want to go to bed -- I only slept two and half hours
the night before (Sunday night) and last night (Monday night) I have not slept at all so now I think I should --
---I like sleeping in the day time and we are in our DAY now.

I think I should try to get myself into the bed.

When I used the CPAP, I needed the full face mask, too. They couldn't find a mask that fit my little face properly tho. I tried using the damn thing for a while, but I could never get used to it. That was about 15 yrs ago.

I hope that you got some sleep, Mari

The cortizone helped my face. And I am still using the old face mask.

Today, I am going to try to "new" facemask again. It will not cut my face in the same way BUT I had the feeling when I tried it last week, that I did not
really sleep.
I was up all night so now I am ready to sleep -- will use the New mask
that won't cut up my face in the same way.
