The Saga Continues....

My saga continues with the nose surgery and cpap machine. My nose has finally healed enough so I can try to use my cpap machine again, but now the pressure is too much and I can't get to sleep with the mask on. I went back to my sleep apnea doctor and they are going to try to adjust the pressure in my machine down to a four for the next couple of weeks until they can do another sleep study on me to see what is going on in the middle of April.

I'm trying to get my cpap machine back to the medical supply company so they can tweak it, but there was a mix up with the script, so it still hasn't been adjusted. Hopefully, I can get it done this week. Also my employer is questioning my performance at work because they've been changing the metrics of my job and my stats are not up to their expectations, so the migraine/sleep apnea thing is really impacting things right now.

I thought by now that my medical problems might be better so it's so discouraging. I don't want to look at more invasive surgeries down the road. I kept telling myself that if I got through the nose surgery and started using my cpap more, things would be better and it's not happening. What if the next couple of things don't help either???

I didn't have my sleep apnea diagnosis before I had my sinus surgery, but keep thinking as positive as you're able. I knew how had it is with unhappy management when you're doing everything you can to make things better. I'm fighting for an ADA accommodation for a spinal issue I've got that's effecting my ability and work load. In the meantime, I'm using narcotics, which make it harder to keep from transposing letters and numbers. Take care, I'm thinking positively for you!

Thank you so much for your comment. I hope your ADA accommodation gets approved cause I know how hard it is to work with pain. I'm keeping you in my thoughts and i really appreciate your support.
