Ive always been a morning person. One who loves to get up before the sun. And feel awake. About a yr ago, I started getting extremely exhausted and had no energy what so ever. I took the sleep study tests and was diagnosed with MILD sleep apnea. I'd hate to see what the sever case feels like. I've had the cpap machine since Feb 1 2011 and use it faithfully everynight. Sometimes it leaks air cuz I move around alot...But after almost 8 months, I still feel the same. For the most part the mask doesnt leak, but shouldnt I be feeling a little relief? I go see the doc today. I cant drive my kids to school, get up early when I do find a job, constantly want to nap. Its very frustrating to say the least:(View Thread
