Before I go away from this blog for five days, there’s something on my mind.
Last fall I was diagnosed with a sleep disorder. Since then I’ve used a Bi-Pap device to prevent me from ceasing to breathe while asleep.
The masks that come with these devices are not the easiest to deal with. Because they don’t always fit right and leak during the night. When that happens, they make awful noises–sometimes akin to flatulence.
This awakens me three or four times per night. Which, I suppose is still better than apnea. Regular pillows are part of the problem. Being a side sleeper, they pinch or shift the mask. My wife ordered me a special pillow, with hollowed out places for C-Pap, Bi-Pap masks. Sure hope it works.
