Sleep Study

I had a sleep study last night. If you have never had one it is well an experience.

And so since I am a true friend........Here is my rendition of how the night went.

I got to the clinic at 7:30. Filled out all the paperwork. Then was led to a room that resembled a hotel room. Not to bad I thought, it only needed it's own bathroom. Had to share with the room next door, which wasn't so bad. So then they take you to this room with all kinds of wires and have you sit in a recliner (at least you don't have to stand) and they attach all kinds of wires to you all over.

See all wired up.

I was able to go back to my room and watch, read, text friends what have you for about another hour or so then they came in a little before 10 and said it was time to turn everything off. They did some test to make sure everything was working. Which consisted of wiggling toes, moving my eyes, fake snoring.

Needless to say I didn't get much sleep. Between my heart heavy with some other personal issues and all the wires and a strange bed and....well that is a ton of and's huh? I know I woke up at least 6 times. I do not know if it was from snoring/apnea or noises or what. But a restful night I did not have. I have an appointment in 2 weeks to go see their doctor. I don't know if I have to wait til then to get results or if my primary care doc will call with them. But either way I will just continue to annoy my hubby with my snoring.

So my friends that is what happens. And OH it is an awful mess trying to clean all that goop out of ones thick curly hair the next morning. That is my public service announcement on Sleep Studies.

OH and you have a camera watching you the whole time. Yeah that creeped me out a little too.

And Becky @ if you read this even if I have sleep apnea I am NOT getting the surgery Brad did not after reading your blog LOL.
