I am writing to introduce myself to the forum.
I am 44, married, with a beautiful 11-year-old "bonus" son. I was recently diagnosed with sleep apnea after complaining of almost complete exhaustion all the time.
I have had my CPAP equipment for only 2 nights. I have had a bit of trouble so far adjusting to the nasal mask, but not nearly as much as I expected. I am still waking up a few times at night to turn over, etc., but not nearly as much as I was (before the equipment arrived, I tried to count the number of times I would wake up fully at night, but lost count after 45 or so). I in no way expected overnight results, so I am quite pleased at how I have progressed so far. The funny part is, my family (especially my elderly mother) expected me to be completely "cured" overnight--hilarious!
I am so happy I found this forum, as I have learned so much from everyone's posts. Thank you for all the helpful information, and I look forward to more posts from all of you.
