I have been having sleep disturbances. I can’t remember how long they have been occuring. Recently, I awoke from a nightmare where I couldn’t breathe and although I was now awake, I still couldn’t breathe. It scared my sister enough to insist I call my doctor. I now have to schedule a sleep study to find out more about my sleep apnea.
In daily life, it basically robs me of sleep. Then I am tired the following morning and I usually try to wake up by drinking coffee, but often, I have to take at least one nap per day, sometimes two or three. Being immobile for so long makes my joints hurt and keeps me from participating in life. Hopefully, the sleep study will help me get better rest.
