Hi Diane. I know what you mean about going in with one problem and
coming out with two. You ask yourself, "What happened here? I don't
want this. I came in only to have this tested, why did they have to
find something else?" I share that feeling totally!! It's a real
bummer and expect yourself to be a bit down for awhile. Soon you will
accept it (we all have to, what other choice?) and you just might one
night find yourself having a really good night's sleep. I look at my
uncle who has been on the cpap machine for over 20+ years. He has
managed to accept it and do it, I guess I can, right.
I am so glad you tried other face masks and followed your instincts
(about going into the hospital). Keep the faith, you'll be restless and
get mad, but sooner than not, you will eventually be so tired that your
body will accept everything and you will sleep through the night. Now
that would be heaven!
Keep taking care of yourself and God bless!!!
