FRIDAYS CAN MAKE YOU OR BREAK YOU.


CrrrrrraaaaaaaP! I'm to pissed to swear. I went to the sleep clinic to wear the cpac or what ever it's called..Who knew I would be so claustrophobic that I can't tolerate the masks..Who in the hell thought up that great idea to slap a mask on your face that looks like a jock strap and then have it blow air into your face at Mach 3 wind speed???? A pox on him and a curse on his family. I couldn't do it..she put on the one that covers just your nose..holy shit, then the one that covers both mouth and nose, no fecking way, and then she stuck what looked like miniature nipples in my nose and that was just to fucked up to deal with. And I really want this to work. She gave me a list of body parts that are effected by sleep apnea..judas priest. all of your organs but mostly your heart and brain..arghghgh! So I'm making an apt with Dr. Cujo and have him give me something to make me calm enough that I can put it on without running screaming out of the building. Then maybe I will get used to it..but I seriously doubt it..That contraption just freaks the fuck out of me..and what really pisses me off is I was soo tired from Jackie's Kitchen I was falling asleep on my feet ..Ok, enough of me whining..I had a great time at Jackie's Kitchen. I made the best Jambalaya you ever ate and if any one wants the recipe I'll put the link on here when I do the post with the pictures..Everyone loved it and got so many compliments my head was very very big.
Ok..It's 1:30 and I need to go to sleep..but now I'm afraid to go to sleep..so may just stay awake till 12-21-12 when the world comes to an end. sleep..sleep..my kingdom for some damn sleep.

OK, that thing about staying awake until 12/21/12 fucking KILLED me!

I, too, suffer from sleep apnea. I've pretty much given up on the CPAP machine, but I might try it again one day. There are some things you can do to help.

I took a mild sedative called Remeron that helped a lot. It's not as nutty as Ambien. You can also set your CPAP to blow slowly at first, and work it's way up to hurricane force by the time you are asleep, so it isn't as drastic.

Finally, the Psalm you posted is totally out of context. It's not written by God, but as a prayer TO God from the Psalmist, asking for revenge against all the atrocities he has witnessed while in captivity.

You went to CPAC?? Did you tell Frothy Boy to FUCK OFF??
Could be worse, besides looking like a jock strap, it could smell like one!!

oh Cpap...hahahah..I never get initials or numbers correct..
I am not giving up on this..I think that is an idea about turning it on slow and then faster as I sleep..but still have to sleep with that jock strap on my face..

I spent about 18 months getting used to my CPAP - at first I could only stand it for 2 to 3 hours at a time that's when I had those stupid "nose nipples". I tried a couple of other types (over the nose styles) and then a CPAP technician recommended the Mirage Activia LT mask (by RESMED you can look it up). It is so comfortable that the first night I tried it I went right to sleep and slept for 9 hours. Been using that mask (or updated versions) for a number of years and recommend it to everyone.

Most CPAP devices have a ramp-up button that allows you about 15 minutes of low velocity. I don't need it any longer and that is largely due to the mask.

My claustrophobic gene kicked in just reading about your experiences.

LOL! I'm gonna steal another one Granny. Ready Ronnie. Sorry to hear about the apnea. I know it's a bummer but thanks for the Friday laugh.

"77% of all anti-abortion leaders are men..."
That's excluding my radical, fanatical Papist sister who is the other 23% -

And their whole fucked-up case is built on the spiritualist BULLSHIT story of life after death!!!

Jeez, Jac, I can't imagine having to cope with such a torture contraption just in the hope of getting a decent nights rest. Actually, Suldog (Jim), a fellow blogger also uses one of these - maybe he might have some tips to pass on? Good luck with it, anyway.

Thanks for the funnies, another great bunch, as always!

Grandma K said...

Looking forward to the recipe!

I was especially fond of all the ones about the poor - and the children who are brought up in poverty. The religious right never things beyond the uterus! After the fetus is a baby, they don't care anymore. Ridiculous. Hypercritical.

FoxyMoron said...

Some fine ones today Jackie Sue.
I couldn't wear that mask either, there must be other alternatives?
Hope you find the answer (and that it isn't a jock strap).

Francie said...

Seems to me you are fighting the good fight on two fronts. Best wishes with the slepp anea cure and - holy crapola - your presidential race is REALLY scary. Those Republican guys are for real?

Vicki said...

So glad you aren't giving up on the CPAP machine and glad you got some suggestions for easing into it.
Thanks for the cleverness.

I think Bob's so angry at women because they won't give him any pussy, and no I'm not talking about Dexter.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

I suspect everyone is freaked out by the CPAP mask the first time. It seems so unnatural and unwieldy. But I'm glad you're going to keep at it. And wow! Some really good advice in today's comments from other CPAP people!

MarkD60 said...

Maybe I need one of those wind-blowing jockstrap sleepin' hats!

Rox said...

Nine more months of election stuff for you guys. I don't know how y'all do it!
