Nasty Night
I had a nasty night on Sunday 27th got a hole 3hours 39 minutes on CPAP & the rest of the night with open eyes & more thoughts for the rest of the night than I can muster up in a week of days.

I wondered if I had been shot up with caffeine, adrenaline & cocaine.

Here is s screen shot from SH & EB

I have never had so many REs in a night.

Why can't we have a switch that we could shut of to sleep!!

RE: Nasty Night
I have to agree. I used to think all you needed to do was use the CPAP 100% of sleep time. Without restorative sleep CPAP, though it's best to use it, will not get you feeling better. I hope you don't have many night like that one. If I can't sleep I take a couple of benadryl. Benadryl has a long half life though and lease some folks a bit groggy in the morning. It doesn't bother me.

RE: Nasty Night
Agree on the benadryl. It is my "go to" when I can't sleep and it helps with my allergies.

RE: Nasty Night
Do some research on sleep hygiene. Some of that information relates to how to get the mind to shut up and let you sleep as well as how to better prepare to sleep.
