Another night’s worth of sleep data to review.
It’s all about average. I went to bed at 11:00ish and woke up before 6:00. I didn’t have as much trouble as usual with the mask coming unsealed. It happened once or twice, but not bad. That’s good news. The trouble I had was that I woke up at 3:45 or so to use the bathroom, I couldn’t fall back to sleep. I wasn’t wide awake, but I wasn’t feeling sleepy. I surfed the web on my iPad for a bit and then at 4:20 or so I tried sleeping. It took a while, but I managed.
Yesterday during my lunch break I spent some time on reddit looking for CPAP groups. I received a lot of encouragement from people saying that it took them months to get used to the machine enough to let them sleep through the night. There were a bunch of helpful people with first hand personal experiences telling me to stick with it and not get discouraged. I appreciate that. It’s nice to know that there is nothing wrong with me. Or at least there might not be anything wrong with me.
When I woke up for good I took off the mask, shut off the machine, propped myself up in bed, grabbed my iPad and a pair of headphones, and started working on the first 50/90 song of the year. Now there are two things that no one else on Earth cares about that I can flood this page with. Nice.
Today at 11:00 Fulltone, the guitar pedal manufacturer, is raffling off six of the new germanium OCD pedals. After that they are making 100 available to people on their mailing list. My name is in the raffle. Wish me luck. Failing that, I’m hoping to be able to order one of those pedals. Wish me luck again. If I win you will probably hear the emphatic “WOOHOO” from whatever little corner of Earth you happen to be on at the time.
Happy 4th of July, or as I said on Facebook this morning (pretending I was clever, but really just being a stupid douchebag) Happy Birthday, USA!
