So, the world is a very very different place without sleep apnea. I always thought I was just...one of thsoe people, who are kinda slow and sleepy their whole life, that this was how life should be.
Only to find out, this isn't normal and it isn't how life should be.
I go to sleep by 11 most nights. I wake up around 7.
I don't nap. I wake up, I feel good, I feel awake from the second I wake up. I wake up and I can actually do things. Get things done. I can actually be awake from the first moment my eyes open, til I get sleep at night.
I have a sleep schedule now. I don't try to stay awake. I don't stay up til the wee hours of the morning. I go to bed, I rest, I get a good night's sleep.
Do you know how this feels, to someone who never had this before? It's like...a complete change of everything. It's me, awake, aware, capable of doing so much.
I love it. I really do. I love my cpap machine, I love getting enough sleep, I love being able to be there all day, no napping. I get so much done! So much!
Now if we could jsut get this blasted body to lose some weight, we'd be good. :P
