Not trying to sound morbid or nothing but...part of me wants to get it treated but another part of me keeps hoping I'll just go to bed some night and wake up the next day in heaven. :D


Edit: I'll probably be laughing cuz I'll be a no call no show at work. LOL

Seriously, I doubt that will happen. While you can die, it would be rare as you require less oxygen when you sleep. My son with sleep apnea has it very bad and in his old group home they would not make him wear his mask. But he never died, thank heaven.

I gave up on the stupid machine as well, hated the mask, and my doctor put me on oxygen at night. I sometimes don’t wear it and I’ll drop to 80-85 range. My heart rate at night drops to an average of 42. The low heart rate bugs me more than the oxygen. During the day, when I awake, it can drop to 35. And yet, I am still alive.

Well you're a real party pooper. :LOL:
I imagine at some point I will have to go back to the pulmonologist and he'll have to do something. He just doesn't act like he's interested which ticks me off.

Why'd you give up on your CPAP?

Morning.

I managed on 2 pills yesterday and will be splitting my last pill today. One now and one tonight when I get home. Less pain last night. Mostly stiff and sore this morning. Not real sore. And deathly tired. If my trainee doesn't show up my energy level will be waning horribly today. I hope she does. It's a busy day and I can't do the running required. They'll hafta take what I got.

I will not be on tonight. I plan to go to bed early. Gonna be in the 60s with a little rain the next couple days. Have a great day and a great week!

You can get a "mask" that is only prongs for the nose; a bit larger than those oxygen things.
Not from my supplier. My issues is not actual sleep apnea, I have a partially prolapsed trachea; the pressure keeps my trachea more open a night. A mask, with prongs only for the nose, would not be as good as nighttime oxygen. Course the best solution, would be a regular mask, but I can barely keep the oxygen on. 🤦🏻‍♀️

morning. slept for 11 hrs. just now getting some coffee in me and trying to wake up. might have to look into some acupuncture for the pinched nerve in my hip. since my rib was so easily fractured...the last thing i want is being ripped around by a chiro. there's an office i been to before but the chiro i saw retired. i will make an appt later for the other one for next week. i simply can't keep going with this pain. i know it's because i can only sleep on the one side right now.

i've been trying to change positions when i can to help alleviate the stress to the one hip. gonna keep trying to ice it and see what happens. :(

I hope you'll find a way to get relief from that. I know it's a big pain to live with. I too have been experiencing some hip pain lately. I can't take anything for pain because of my bad liver so I've been thinking of putting my giant sized ice pack on it. The pain seems to also radiate down my leg. So maybe that sciatic nerve is involved too. 😒

I am so sorry you are going through so much. I follow a few YouTube channels that have helped me in different areas of my life. This is a link to two guys I watch all the time and they helped me with their knowledge. This video is about a cracked rib but I have not found one yet for a broken one. Maybe you will find it useful.
