New CPAP user. Waking up a lot
#11
To all the people who replied thank you heaps. Your comments and suggestions have helped a lot. I am getting used to the mask and do like it better than the pillows. I am waking feeling more refreshed than I have for a long time. Thanks again

Don't know, haven't gotten there yet. But it's ok. Sometimes I have to get up to go to the bathroom but often not. Used to be that was a several times a night thing. So that's better. Also, it's kind of fun, in a sick sort of way, to wake up feeling great, like you've had a week's worth of rest --- then look at the clock and realize it's only been two hours. But that's ok too.

So how long until you or I sleep through the night? Don't know. ...and that's ok too. Geesssh, I'm beginning to sound like that funky comedian from awhile back.

Yeah, that's the weird thing. I usually wake up every couple of hours, just like I did before PAP. The difference is I must actually be sleeping during those two hours, because I feel a lot better in the morning than I did without PAP.
