Well if that was true, then when I look at each of the sleep segments under the pie chart there would be one very high, but they all seem to be quite low...?

So why does my Resmed say 4.6 AHI? Plus I don't feel like I have .87, I feel like 4.6...
Looks like the Resmed started a new day at noon. According to the SleepyHead data, you slept until 1:17pm.
Resmed would have counted about 1.28 hours from noon to 1:17pm.
Looks like you had 6 events during that time, which gives an AHI of 4.6-ish for that 1.28 hour window.
(assuming there is a Hyp in there that's not obvious, maybe the thicker line is two side by side)
Sounds like the bigger question may be how you're feeling.
The broken sleep is probably part of it. If there is some way to get that back on track to one continuous sleep time, it could help. Not sure what to tell you on that, other than to do the basic sleep hygiene, and maybe try to skip the late morning/early afternoon sleep one day and see if that helps you sleep through the night that following night.
Also you may not be resting all that well, when you are sleeping. I noticed you're using an EPR setting of 3. You might try 2 or 1 and see if that is more comfortable for you. You might sleep more soundly that way. If you are getting woken up with leaks, etc, that can be disrupting your sleep too.
What does the epr setting do? I thought it dropped my pressure down 3 when I exhale. So I am set at 9, so my exhale pressure would be 6?

That's correct. And, you can see it in the high rate pressure graph (blue.)
