Life is good again!
Been a bit since I've been on here. With some very minor tweaking, I am happy to say I am consistently less than 1 with AHI's each night. Most importantly, I can once again function with life's normal daily activities and routines. I am simply amazed at where I was to where I am now. Had my doubts I'd ever feel this well again!

Just wanted to share my exuberance with you all on getting my life back.

A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures....

:Good for you Stargazer!

It's inspiring for some of us newbies to hear any success stories so thanks for sharing yours. Exuberance is indeed called for and appropriate! SHa_clap2Way-to-happy

It also must make some of the experts who assisted in your quest feel good to know that they have been instrumental in relieving someone's suffering. This site is terrific and the people who donate their time and effort have my deepest respect and gratitude.

Thanks & Sleep-well
