c-pap and medication
I take klonopin, but my psychiatrist thinks the dose is not enough to affect my sleep apnea. I would work on getting compliant (able to use) your machine before anything else. I don't know why you're on benzos, but as PaulaO2 said you need to come off them under a doctors supervision and it can be a long process. Take one problem at a time. Machine first. You may find you start to lose weight when you start to regularly use the machine.
A DME is a durable medical equipment provider. Most of us get our machines and supplies from one.
It all sounds quite overwhelming right now, but you can take care of business. Good luck.

I found the best way to loose weight was to do the following:
First 3 days eat a open hand ful of protein for the 3 meals only. Its hard, but it detoxis you
1/ Walk 10,000 steps a day - if you can
2/ Drink 2 to 3 litres of water per day
3/ Eat a protein based meals with vegies(not potato or kumera) or lots of salad with protein. Try scrambled eggs for brekkie.
4/ Eat a protein snack between meals, I have a 95kg can of tuna
5/ Stop eating carbs and sugar
after 3 weeks you should weigh yourself again. If weight is decreasing you can have 1 free day a week, but be careful on the carbs

Good luck hope this helps you in your weight
Happy sleeping
