I hate to ask for your help with a non-diabetic problem, but this is my second home and I hope someone can help me out. I have been diagnosed with OSA-sleep apnea and I got my nasal mask and CPAP machine today. The respiratory therapist helped me to figure out how to use all of the crap. I am totally overwhelmed right now. I also found out today that I stop breathing 24 times per minute and my breathing is very shallow at times, plus my pulse ox is low. I have a port to add my oxygen to the CPAP machine. I really don't know if I am going to be able to sleep like this. I had a nightmare come true. I am still trying to get my strength back since I had 2 hospital stays where I was really sick. I feel like I just want to throw in the towel and let things happen naturally. I thought about just stop using my oxygen and let things just happen. I don't want to sleep with the CPAP machine and just want to continue to sleep without it regardless of my need for it. I probably sound crazy and there have been times when I felt crazy. I am tired of being sick and I still have no answers about what is causing the bouts of pneumonia. I have yet to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
