One year and three movies later....
I am coming up on a year now with xpap. Prior to xpap I would go to see a movie, spend my $10-$20 depending and then promptly fall asleep. It really stunk. I gave up, just couldn't do it. A week ago someone suggested we go see a film, and I was leery still having many bad memories of movies past. I must say it was the first time in a good many years I actually saw the entire film. Even the people I was with commented on my not falling asleep. They tell me i'm still a jerk, but hey at least I don't fall asleep! +1 for me. Just wanted to share some positive results with all you guys/girls for this new year.

Of course if it's a B rated film it's hard to keep from falling asleep

Pre-therapy, I would fall asleep in the middle of a TV program a couple times a week. Now, never.

I think I have had SA for decades; I fell asleep in Star Wars. Star Wars! (in the theatre)

If you actually are a jerk (and I doubt that highly from reading your great posts) they probably want you asleep, unless snoring. Eat-popcorn

Before CPAP, I often fell asleep during movies. Had been known to fall asleep on a live rifle range too.

RE: One year and three movies later....
Congrats. I think ive been to maybe 12 movies at a theater in my lifetime. Never fell asleep during them. Waiting room for a Doc though I would be out like a light snoring up a storm LOL.

I dont fall asleep in the day now unless ive been up about all night and didnt get any sleep. Ive taken a nap about five times in over 3 months of pap treatment because of that.

Honestly, I would think simply by having you in the group, no one would fall asleep. More so even now~!

RE: One year and three movies later....
I would fall asleep watching the news every evening. I would fall asleep in consultations around 4 pm. I nearly nodded off in surgery once (didn't though - training kicked in, and discretion, and I asked my junior to take over). Now I don't nod off in anything, and except recently when I started having some heart trouble, I have been fresh as daisy all day. Right now I feel as bad as I did before I started CPAP, but it is for entirely different reasons. I checked on that first thing, of course.

Didn't fall asleep during Star Wars, but I did fall asleep at the opera - on the other hand, so do most husbands when their wives drag them to it. Wagner - eugh! Overblown, bombastic and over-orchestrated. And it takes them hours to get to the point of anything - that would put the most patient man to sleep.

Opera, women, or possibly both? Dielaughing

While things are happening it's a little harder to see how badly it is taking it's toll on your life, but when you can look back, it really makes you think.
