Trying to get some zzzzzz

I had my follow-up appointment re my disturbed sleep patterns, and boy were the results lousy. So beginning next week, I shall be sporting one of these lovely devices at night.

How will I keep the boys away? So hot!

The doctor said I never go into a deep sleep and therefore I am "chronically sleep deprived". Apparently if a person's oxygen level goes below 89% at night, it is cause for concern and treatment, and mine went down to 80%. I'm practically dead already! At my worst, I stop breathing 30 times per hour. Why haven't I had a stroke yet??? I've been dragging my ass around for so long, I don't even know what it feels like not to be exhausted all the time.

So let's see if this baby does any good. Even with insurance, it's going to cost me close to $1000, so this sucka betta gimme some results.

Well, it ain't glamorous. Does it come in different colours??? (yes, I know that answer to that), but if it helps you sleep properly, then its fab. I hope it works - as you say, for that money, it would want to!
New business opportunity for someone - design these in different colours etc so they don't look quite so, er, surgical!

I agree. As a girl, I would prefer that mine be pink.

You know you could accessorise to taste really - a cute feather boa, sequins, stickers - possibilities are endless!

If it makes you feel any better I work with two guys here who use the device. They both says looks nuts but they felt so much better afterwards because they finally felt rested.

That's what I have heard in most cases, too. I only know of two people who said it made no difference. I have more people who've told me it is great to finally get some real deep sleep.
I'm crossing my fingers it works for me.
