I have taken all of the surveys, and the only one I have scored remotely satisfactory on was the one asking about my impact of sleep on daily activities. I have had no impact on any of my daily activities except work.
I received my first APAP machine on my last birthday (incidentally, my next birthday is coming up this year) so I have known about sleep therapy for just under a year now.
I have mixed sleep apnea, but my OSA is more severe than my CSA. I had my APAP machine until a few months ago, when my sleep apnea company insisted that I give it back to them. I ended up owing them a lot of money as a result. I stopped using my APAP machine because I have sensory issues. I do not like the feeling of distilled water in my mouth and I couldn't stand my APAP machine trying to work itself too hard when I had severe OSA episodes. It made a lot of noise while I was trying to sleep also.
My sleep doctor suggested that I use an APAP machine during the day and I will do that for more and more minutes a day until I am used to it. However, the problem is that I have so many outlets in my residence that I don't know which one to plug my machine into in my common area.
Do any of you relate to me?
