It's a reminder of what a person with severe sleep apnea and without CPAP goes through the following day. It feels like
- someone's taken a blow-torch to my heart in the middle of the night
- the heart beats in a sickened way throughout the day
- my vision is unfocused throughout the day
- an aching persistent headache throughout the day
I'm reminded of what things were like in the days just before implementing the CPAP solution. I hate using CPAP every night and having to go through the whole maintenance thing every day.
Having said that, I'll be kissing that CPAP machine tonight before bed and thanking the heavens for its existence. I can't possibly imagine what things would be like for me without the CPAP solution.
