A Decent Night's Sleep


Missy, here. Rest is so important for our well being. A time to rejuvenate and refresh. Do you sleep like a baby at night? I'm hoping I will tonight (Wednesday night). I was recently diagnosed with sleep apnea and just got a CPAP machine to help keep my airway open. I'll let you know how it goes!

What about you? Do you sleep well at night? Are you a night owl or an early riser? Do you have any routines that help you sleep better? Gosh, I'm full of questions, aren't I? :) Please share!

  1. Well, I had a decent night. Not great. But not awful. It's going to be a little adjustment! :)

  2. Missy,

    I have sleep apnea but I don't sleep well at all - makes no difference if I use my CPAP or not. I don't know if I have insomnia or if there is just SO MUCH going on in my life this last year, but I average 2-3 hours of sleep a night and at least once a week, I'm up all night long. Needless to say, I'm beyond exhaustion and I breathe, eat, work on autopilot.

  3. Missy, I'm feeling you. I was diagnosed with apnea about 2 1/2 years ago. It took me a few weeks to get used to the cpap machine, but once I did I could tell a difference. I have learned, however, that when I have a cold or sinus infection the cpap doesn't work well at all. My biggest obstacle is that I have a difficult time waking up, which probably has more to do with me being a night owl though.

  4. Yeah, Dianna, I can imagine how that would feel with a stopped up nose!

  5. Wishing you luck with the new deal, Missy. At times, I have insomnia.....nothing crucial. Reading at night helps me relax. Right now, I am reading A Family for Faith and loving it!!

  7. Missy, I hope the machine works for you!
    Edwina, I will pray for you to get more sleep, that must be hard on you.
    Dianna, I am better at sleeping in than going to bed too :) I am such a night owl :)
    I still sleep like a mom, waking up throughout the night. I never used to do that before my little one. :)

  8. I'm glad you were able to sleep, Missy. I usually dream so vividly that it doesn't feel as if I've slept at all...especially when I'm trying to plot a novel. Too bad none of it makes any sense!

  9. Eva Maria, I'm a night owl, too. And I, too, hear every little noise--from listening for babies for so long! :)

  10. Jan, don't you wish the dreaming made enough sense to be able to use it! I woke once and jotted all kinds of ideas. Later, when I was fully awake, I just had to laugh. It didn't make a bit of sense! :)
