    I’m new here!

    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.

    Tired. All. The. Time.

    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.

    My spouse gets so frustrated because I’m always sleeping or sleepy. I know some can be attributed to my depression. This was just beyond depression sleepiness. It was a vicious cycle.

    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.

    Please take care of yourself and each other. ❤️ Charmin #DepressionNaps #MajorDepression #SleepApnea #SleepDeprivation #Sleeptoomuch #ObstructiveSleepApneaHypopnea

    Has anyone had the Inspire implant surgery for their sleep apnea? If so, what can you tell me about the surgery recovery and success?

    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.
