Who needs sleep, tell me what's that for...." Thus goes the chorus to one of my fave songs by The Barenaked Ladies. I gotta say this, sleep apnea s*cks (Thank god for CPAP tho). For the most part, I get enough sleep to get by on, and use my machine every night. I got diagnosed about 6 years ago, and recently completed my third sleep study. They found that my apnea is relatively "normal" during regular sleep, but the instant I go from reg. sleep in to REM sleep, I go from 3 times an hour to 23 times an hour that I stop breathing. Kinda scarey, but I've got my machine, so I'll manage.
