I knew it would be a group appointment, so I was surprised when it was me and one other lady in the waiting room. At 2:30 two other ladies showed up, signed in, filled out paperwork, and waited along with me. at 2:40 one last person showed up and joined us after doing the paperwork too. At 3:00 someone finally came and gathered us all to go to the training. I was ready to scream after waiting 45 minutes after the appointment was to start. What was the first thing the trainer said? "we may have to wait a few minutes for one last person." What did I say? "No, we cannot wait for another person to come. The appointment was for 2:15 and they are really late!" Well, lucky for the trainer he decided to start without her, and she didn't show up anyway. It's bad enough I have to do this silly sleep study, and then they choose to mess with me!
That's so annoying. And how rude of the other people to just randomly show up after the appt time too.

Hope your sleep study goes well, Chopper!

Thanks. I am hoping that losing weight has just made it so that I don't have sleep apenia now. I know...wishful thinking, but it could happen...I would hate to have to use the C-PAP machine, but if I need to I will I guess.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that the apnea goes away.

I've noticed that dentists around here can give you appliances much less clunky than a C-PAP, might not hurt to ask. You've probably already tried the BreatheRite strips.

I asked about the dental appliance today and the guy said that it is not as effective and they probably would not recommend it. Depending on what happens with this study, I will chat with both my doctor and dentist about that. I still have some of the issues (gasping for air) with the breath rite strips. I have not had as much of a problem in the last couple of weeks, but I could still be having problems and not know about it. I am still really tired in the morning, and usually have quite the headache.

I hope you get it sorted

It took me forever to get used to Shrek's CPAP and him not snoring. Now his snoring wakes me up...means he's not using his CPAP.

There is a thick yellow haze in the air, everything is covered in pollen. I feel like a zombie, even taking flonaise and claratin! I'd never seen pollen like this until I moved south. I walked out of work today and the parking lot looked like a sand storm except it is pollen! UGH!

yeah, and soon we'll be having to put up with cicadas again-- doing their drunken dive-bombing acts around our heads. ...has it really been 17 years since their last hapless visit?

I think that there are two batches, because I swear we just dealt with them within the last 5 years. My boss lives in the country and the cicadas get terrible there, in the city, it isn't as bad, but bad enough!
