: I was diagnosed with OSA a while back.
: They gave me a CPAP machine.
: I have alergies with plug my sinuses 30% to 40% of the time at night, so the CPAP is not very effective.
: My Girlfriend left me because she says she can't stay with an invalid who has to wear a resperator all night.
: My boss is hasseling me about time off and falling asleep at work. And the thought of being tied to this damn CPAP for the rest of my life is driving me nuts.
: The exaustion and all this crap has me pushed right to the edge. I am really afraid some poor gas station attendant will say or do the wrong thing and I will do severe bodily harm to the poor basstard.
: AAARRRGGG!! The future looks Dismall!!

I understand that it is a tough situation. An understanding mate/friend/significant other is very helpful. Education and support are the best way.

I found a great source of support, conversation, and CPAP tips while surfing one day. Try this site:

http://www.talkaboutsleep.com

Knowledgeable folks and daily chats on sleep topics. It helped me.

One fact. Untreated severe sleep apnea has a 40%, 10-year mortality rate. You are treated! Look at it this way ... now, at least, you have a future.

Best of luck, and it will get better.
