2 weeks in and feeling great
#1
So I'm 2 weeks in to my cpap journey and I'm feeling great. No more 2pm fatigue feeling. I have more energy, my BP is improving, and my mood is 150 times better. I am so glad I started cpap therapy.

great to hear you got an immediate boost. some of this may wear off a little as you get further along. use the new found energy to tackle health issues you might have had no will to fix when walking dead.

I find that, in my right mind, I make good decisions. Trouble before was I was not in my right mind. Now I am more often than not.

my first few weeks, I saw evidence that my BP was reducing, I stopped my caffeine intake, ate differently, and lost about 1 pound a week for about 5 straight weeks. Since then, I regained weight, my BP reduction did not stay put. Am still off caffeine, and eating better, and exercising more. Experienced periods of bloating, and some days had more drowsiness than I thought I should have. Bloating abated, slight loss of weight, and BP back down a bit. You just gotta have faith that, when treated, your body will work through the issues a little at a time.

All through the 4 months I have experienced peace of mind, and release from anxiety, foul mood, lack of concentration, various body aches and anger.

truetopath,
Glad this is going well for you. Watch your stats on Sleepyhead, so if something changes and you have questions, you will know what to look for.
