Since being diagnosed with OSA just over 4 years ago, my life has changed hugely, and that change has been great! My new sleep patterns have now have developed into a wonderful and restful time. I wake up totally refreshed where previously I was running on empty, exhausted and felt like I needed more sleep. Nowadays, I actually enjoy the thought of going to bed at night. However, in talking with many other OSA sufferers at support meetings, it wasn’t all a bed of roses when we first started using this strange breathing apparatus. But with persistence and trust in the well researched equipment, OSA is not the big stigma in my life and others' lives anymore. My sleep apnea is well controlled and my CPAP equipment has been a great investment in my health.
