I have tried a new mask because my quality of life has been deteriorating to that of an animated zombie. I had had sleep studies done some years ago and it confirmed that yes I had sleep apnoea. Got a machine and never really got the hang of it and tended to rip the mask off during the night. Now I have a full faced mask and yes I probably look scary.....I scared the dickens out of the cat the first night....but oh it is lovely not to wake with a cracker of a headache, and drag myself around for most of the day. I am also very overweight ...I wonder if my seeking of sweeties has been an attempt to keep going...it seems to be the case although it is early days yet. The other part of the amazing resurrection of the mostly dead me is the fact that old habits do die hard....I expect to wake with a headache and automatically go to get analgesia....then it is ..."wait a minute, I do not need this!" Fabulous!!!
