So my apnea is pretty bad. I'm choking for 10 seconds every minute. What everyone says is that getting a CPAP machine is going to change my life. I've been compensating for a lack of restful sleep, a lack of oxygen, and I never knew it, but once I stop compensating it will be AMAZING.
The thing is, I don't sleep a lot. I sleep about an average amount, as I compare to people I've slept with or lived with. I don't suffer from an unusual lack of energy. I'm not a wreck in the mornings, even before coffee. I can make it through four hours of dance lessons, which is no small feat, and even though I'm barely standing by the end of it, I am standing. I do moderate exercise on a regular basis, not like an athlete or anything, but compared to what I see around me, I do pretty well.
So, if this is what compensating is like, what will life-after-CPAP be like? Am I secretly hyperactive?
