it's been a minute, kids. and nothing from yours truly. that's because there isn't much to report.
my ahi continues to NOT be a problem, by any stretch of the imagination. oh pugsy's aliens came over one night to bestow a bit of obstructive apnea, taking me to 1.44. i don't even know if it was real. things calmed down after that and the aliens haven't revisited.
of course, it's the comfort front i'm more concerned about. remember, i'm working on trying to reduce and maybe even eliminate my fractured sleep. alas, there doesn't seem to be any sort of switch that i can turn to make that happen.
i do seem to be getting longer periods of my "first sleep". that is, i'm sleeping longer before i initially wake up. i used to wake up almost spot on 3:30 am after lights out at 11 pm. now that can stretch until 5:30 am. that's a huge step in the right direction for sure. but it's in no way consistent.
i've been keeping a journal. but i think i may have to start taking more comprehensive notes. maybe start taking down what i ate the day of my sleep. how much coffee? how much wine? and so forth. i like to think i do a fairly decent job of sleep hygiene. however, i imagine i'd be quite surprised to see the correlation.
anyway, i press on.
life is good, with a circle of friends.
