Another rough sleep. I was dead tired by 10:00 and zonked out completely. I woke up around 12:30 and thought it was 5:00. I couldn’t believe how exhausted I was. What a relief when I realized the actual time. I was able to fall back to sleep quickly and all was well until around 2:30. That’s when the weird noises the CPAP mask was making woke me up and kept me up. It was a high pitched squeak and I couldn’t figure out how to stop it I don’t think it’s the mask itself because the first thing I tried was using my old mask. I think it’s the connection between the hose and the harness, and it might have something to do with the humidifier. There was a lot of moisture built up at the connection point. I took it apart, washed it and dried it, and lowered the humidity a click. I also put the newest mask back on. It was fine until just before 5:00 when it started making noise again, not nearly as bad as it had been but enough to wake me up. I’ve been awake ever since.
The numbers say I had just under six hours of sleep, but less than four of it was restful. I pretty much always hit four hours of restful sleep. Strange. So I got almost an hour more total than each of the last two days but I will probably end up being more tired.
Information is great and all, but sometimes I wish I didn’t know the numbers as well as I do. I could just not think about it and get on with my life, you know?
