Drowsiness in Broad Daylight: A Writer’s Sobering Journey to a Sleep Apnea Diagnosis
A writer for Jersey’s Best reports on her path to obstructive sleep apnea diagnosis, as well as her current struggles with CPAP.
I had not just sleep apnea, but severe sleep apnea. I averaged an episode of either apnea or hypopnea (breathing so shallow the blood isn’t sufficiently oxygenated) nearly 30 times an hour, or once every two minutes.
No wonder I was exhausted. I was getting tons of sleep, but barely any rest.
