What to do while waiting for machine

What to do while waiting for machine
I’m so tired. I’m the one that went to the doctor because I was noticing that I was essentially having centrals while dozing. They snap me awake until I’m too tired to care. No, it isn’t every day but many. Today is one of those bad days where I can’t even nap right. 

My 2nd study isn’t until Sept 9. They want to test me on a bilevel, but the folks one this board say I’m the perfect candidate for ASV.

Today I’m looking for suggestions what to do in the meantime. Ten days for the study and ??? days for my own machine. Any tips or hints before then?

Once I had my two night in-lab sleep study done, the doctor wrote a script for a CPAP machine within a day or so. I simply drove a couple of miles to the DME supplier and picked it up. 

Not much I suppose you can do until you have your study, but once done, make sure the doctor is made aware you want a machine ASAP.
