    Staying asleep
    joeloz50 posted:
    Hello, Just a quick question to everyone. I had a reunion I went to with a bunch of friends in Myrtle Beach. Before the reunion, I was able to sleep anywhere anytime. I have a severe case of sleep apnea. I have been wearing the mask for about 5yrs now. My problem is after I came back from my reunion my whole life changed for the worse. I cant wear the mask anymore. have to take a lite sedative to fall asleep. Then when I do go asleep I wake up 5-5/and 1/2 hours later. Its like my whole life was thrown into utter chaos. I did excessive drinking smoking cigars and drinking cigars while I was down there. Any advice would be appreciated.
