Hi, I'm new here.
I just wanted to pop on and say Hello. I'm glad to have found this group. #MightyTogether #ADHD #ChronicFatigue #Arthritis #Asthma #ObstructiveSleepApneaHypopnea #Hypertension #Hypersomnia Photo is me in 1970. 🥰
Hi, my name is charliwheeler. I’m new to The Mighty and look forward to sharing my story.
Hi, my name is prycer06. I’m new to The Mighty and look forward to sharing my story and my children’s stories and even my Mother’s story. I have a son with depression, suicidal thoughts, and OCD. My daughter is an IVF baby. My baby son was born with a congenital heart defect and Down Syndrome. My Mother is a stroke survivor of nearly 6 years, she lives independently but under my close watch.
I’m not sure if this will help anyone.
I had an unknown, underlying condition. I am not extremely over weight, nor do I have any physical, pre-existing conditions. I just have a “broken brain”. I finally found a medical Dr that LISTENS! She conducted a sleep study. I have (had) sleep apnea.
I stop breathing when I sleep, my wonderous brain wakes me up to breathe. That’s great, but not all night long. Didn’t matter how much or how little sleep I tried to get.
I have been prescribed a Cpap unit. I know it will take a few months before I can see results, but I am encouraged because studies show that any brain damage caused by my lack of oxygen can be repaired over time.
I still have severe depression and take medication. I am hopeful for the first time in an extremely long time. Never underestimate the value of a really good night’s sleep.
It doesn’t hurt to rule out apnea. Doesn’t matter your age or weight. It can be making depression worse.
i feel as though I'm a pain in other peoples asses. especially my nurses and aids. I'm here to get iv antibiotic therapy and they take away my rights to make my own decisions. #Fibromyalgia #sciatica #Scoliosis #Arthritis #scizoaffecttive #Bipolar2Disorder #non alcoholic fatty liver disease #Neuropathy #Anxiety #GastroesophagealRefluxDisease #Osteopenia #Anemia #Hypokalemia #hypocalcemia #Asthma #ObstructiveSleepApneaHypopnea #Insomnia #venusstasis #Venus insufficiency with edema #Psoriasis ?
How do I not lose my job? I love my job. I keep oversleeping. I wake up 4 minutes after I have to be at work. I am on the verge of getting fired. I’ve been sick too. I took cold medicine last night and slept more than 8 hours. Can a doctor’s note help? I am on medication for daytime sleepiness but I take it when I wake up. It’s actually waking up that hard to do (yes I know it’s a song). Countless alarms and alarm devices don’t work. I need to work.
