I don't know if I've stated this before, but I have a condition known as sleep apnea. It causes me to stop breathing while I'm asleep, which causes me to sleep inefficiently, keeps me from dreaming properly, and... other things. I'm not as read up on it, but that's neither here nor there.

But anyway. My point. I started on a CPAP last night, which is a breathing machine, after getting approved for it last week after my sleep study. I had had one before, but... the thing was intolerable and I would often remove the headset during the night. So I foolishly ignored it, and the thing fell into disuse. This new one has a different mask, and is much more comfortable to wear.

I didn't pull it off even once, and when I woke up? I felt more refreshed and rested than I have in a long, long time.

It's gonna take some getting used to, but for the first time, I feel like I'm getting to a real change. ^^
