Hi all.  I am joining as a result of a post in a Yahoo group, and am now just checking out the site.  I have severe sleep apnea (AHI=50 something).  I was diagnosed last year, but I think I have had it for many  years prior. I started out on a straight CPAP, and recently purchased a 420E APAP, so I'm trying to learn and adjust to it now.

One of my goals is to keep a OSA journal here.   We'll see how that goes.

I have severe sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome. This group has been so helpful in choosing cpap machines, masks, support during sleep studies, and so much more.
