The test results are in

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Well, the results from my sleep lab test came back today and ... I have sleep apnea. Bummer. But I’m kinda happy at the same time to finally know what’s been causing a lot of my sleep problems for years. And thanks to some helpful advice from SNUZYQ2 on my last post, I’m not dreading having to use a CPAP machine as much anymore. Who knows, maybe I’ll finally get some restful sleep for once. Something else happened today that was really big (for me). I exercised. For the first time in a VERY long time. I worked out on my elliptical for 20 minutes and it felt great. And no back or foot pain! I had taken a long hiatus from exercise due to chronic back pain, plantar fasciitis, and major depression that just zapped my energy and motivation to workout. But for months now I’ve been diligently doing physical therapy at home and working on my mental health, and today I got to enjoy the fruits of my labor (by doing more labor, lol). It felt nice to see some progress. My weight has been on a bit of a plateau for weeks now. I had a few indulgent days of eating out while celebrating my 13-year anniversary, but otherwise I’ve been eating very healthy. So I’m confused and frustrated by seeing the scale not moving much, but I won’t let it get me down or make me quit like in the past. I’m in this. Hope y’all are having a good week so far! Only 2 more days till the weekend! :-D Thanks for reading, SparkPeeps! Jen

    I got my CPAP machine a couple of years ago. For probably 3 weeks it was hard to sleep. I kept waking up with air shooting up or down out of the mask. But I'm so glad I persisted in adjusting to sleeping with it! A restful night sleep is priceless!
