I have been putting off the sleep tests my physician ordered for a couple of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that I sleep most poorly away from my own bed. However, I am tired of always being tired, and tonight I am taking the somnolent plunge and letting the technicians spend 30 minutes hooking me up to machines that will assess my ability to sleep.
The suspicion is that I have sleep apnea, and I will not be in the least surprised if I add this diagnosis to the other health problems that puzzle me and keep area health specialists gainfully employed. However, the fine folks at the Pulmonary and Critical Care Specialists might actually be able to help me better manage my sleeping difficulties.
Yet I am still skeptical that I will actually sleep tonight, given my existing track record of tossing and turning when I am not in my own bed. And if any of those other insomniacs or apneacs keep me awake tonight, I am going to be doubly irritated tomorrow.
