First I want to say how excited I am to have found this forum. I was just diagnosed with sleep apnea. This has been such a frustrating process between insurance and the cpap machine distributor.
A little background: I noticed about 8 months ago after a car accident that I was waking feeling exhausted. Black circles under my eyes and a crabby attitude were becoming the norm. So needless to say I have been a joy to be around. When my body healed from the accident I thought I would be able to sleep but no such luck. I went to the Dr and did a home sleep test. I was diagnosed a month ago and contacted by the company to supply my machine. Since I have not met my deductible I have to pay for the machine out of pocket and there is only machine my insurance will approve to go against my deductible. I travel for a living so the full size machine is not feasible. So I am still exhausted and am gaining weight because I can't exercise and I just don't know where to turn.
