Getting an in home sleep study probably got the apnea. been a snorer all my life fat or skinny. I'm ready for my vader mask. Though really I just want the surgery where they take part of your throat out and break your nose. I have lots of offers for help with the broken nose part.

Get the Vader mask my man....It's awesome if you can get used to it.

 

One day soon I'm gonna figure out how to use an old mask for smoking bud.

for real though, I'd like to breathe better you heathens. Not even sleep wise just out and about, exercise, etc.

Put the bong down a little more often then.

Friend of mine had that done - said the recovery was absolutely horrific.

Guy I went to high school with had it done a few months ago.  He was dead about a week later from complications.

 

I've been using a cpap for about 10 years.  Life is so much better with it.

You just gotta be patient when you first get it.  There's a learning curve getting used to it; at least there was for me.

 

I ditched the full face mask after a few months.  It's good if you sleep on your back, but the seal breaks if you roll over and it will wake you up.  I just wear the piece that fits on your nose.  They call it nose pillows.  If you're a mouth breather, they make a chin strap to keep your mouth shut so you can wear the nose pillows.

 

I used to fall asleep if I sat down for more than 20 minutes.  Driving was dangerous.  Haven't had any fatigue issues in 10 years.  Hell I'll even put on the machine if I go down for a 30 minute nap.  Wake up fully rested all the time now.
