1100 days not feeling rested. I've tried different masks, positional sleeping, meds, monitoring software; and I'm still wiped. No job, no insurance. I blew $150 at the doctor last week. He put me on "Remeron," which made me sleep for 12 hours, felt groggy for six hours after wakening, and when if finally wore of my usual fatigue was still there. I'm very wary of doctors; its like going to a casino. They take your money but probably not help you.

How can anyone live like this? How many more years? There's nothing in this world, this life that's worth dragging myself through the day. "Hang in there, its worth it!" they cry. I've hung in there for three years; its not better.

Hi AffableIndigoFox. I'm sorry to read that you never feel rested. I felt this way for years and eventually realized I was driving while drowsy. Fortunately, nobody was hurt. Living with constant fatigue and sleepiness was exhausting and frustrating. This led to my sleep study and eventual treatment, and my treatment has resolved the problem. Unfortunately, CPAP does not fix the problem for everyone. Especially when there are other health problems that might contribute to the fatigue. I don't know your full medical history or what kinds of physicians you have seen, but there are so many more things that can contribute to fatigue than sleep issues. I hope you are able to find some answers and truly wish you all the best.
