On Friday afternoon a young man in scrubs came to the office and showed me how to work the sleep machine and fitted the headgear on me. I was already feeling pretty congested and sneezy, but between the cold meds and the built-in humidifier, I felt OK on Friday and Saturday nights. I think it will take a long time for me to get used to being tethered to a long plastic tube, and not being able to turn as freely or sleep on my stomach.
The funny thing is that I really don't feel *that* different in the morning. In fact, I want to sleep even more. Saturday afternoon I took a long nap, and Sunday morning I woke up at 7am, pulled the mask off, and then went back to sleep and consequently missed church.
So we'll see what happens during the work week.
That's exactly how I feel when I wear my mask - no different. But people will tell me if you keep at it you will get sleep.
My problem is that after four weeks of trying to sleep with that dang thing on and not sleeping because I'm so uncomfortable...which is the worst evil? I'm not sleeping to my best regardless.
