So I'm guessing everyone is on the edge of their seat, wanting to know how it went. Well I went over at 9pm last night. They began hooking me up to all sorts of crap. There were like 10 wires connected to my head. It took about 45 minutes to hook it all up. Then off to bed.

Apparently I fell asleep quickly. It's hard to tell with no clock for reference. Sometime before 3am the gal monitoring me came in to put on the mask. I had stopped breathing 200 times already. They'll put it on at 80. Then back to bed. I was able to sleep for a bit on my side, but eventually it all started hurting due to the crappy mattress. The gal came in and put me on a different machine. I don't think I fell asleep at all with it. It was normal air pressure most of the time, but when I breathed in the machine would sense the pressure drop and push air into my lungs. Really weird.

Well they say 2 weeks to get the results. It looks like I'm getting a Vader mask! &#59;)

I was wondering how it went. How does anyone fall asleep with people watching them?? I wanna crack a joke, but I’m really just worried for you. I’m glad you’re getting this stuff checked out and monitored.

They did have the cool IR camera’s on me so they could see in the dark. I was wondering before as well… do they have a 1 way mirror and sit back there and watch?? A bunch of the stuff they hooked up was microphones, so they could hear everything.

Was this for sleep aphnia? I didn’t know you were going to do anything like this. Sounds wierd. My dad has to sleep with one of those masks, but he sleeps much better and doesn’t wake up like he did.

Yup, sleep apnea. It explains why I have a hard time waking up in the mornings, and sleep around 12 hours on weekends.
