i wonder if my cpap isn't working as well as it used to (the mask is having issues - i've ordered replacement parts). i'm in class tonite, and it's just like the bad old sleepy days of undergraduate nite school a dozen years ago - i keep dozing off.

maybe i'm just more sleep deprived than i realized this week.

so, i had tasty lasagna for dinner tonite and then went to sleep to snooze for many hours before doing off-hours work in the morning on sunday.

except the lasanga triggered *vicious* reflux.

of course, i sleep with the cpap, which blows air down my nose making sure that my throat stays open clear up to my nose. so my guess is that the stomach acid made it as far up as my sinuses.

i woke up and couldn't breathe. i mean COULD. NOT. BREATHE. pulled the mask off. managed to wheeze thru my mouth a bit as i panicked and wondered if i should call 911. i figured out what had happened (just really bad reflux) and relaxed a bit and waited for the reflux experience to subside. i'm fine now.

but god DAMN. that was the worst reflux ever.

ugh. i had plans to wake up early and be productive (i'm generally more productive when i get up and get an early start on things), except i fell asleep without my cpap mask on, and so i slept fitfully until 0600 at which point i woke up and hooked myself up and then decided to sleep till 10 or so.

slept without my cpap last night (i stayed at claudia's and forgot to bring it with me because i was running late). i have a sore throat and my sinuses were bugging me all day. almost as if i had been making some atrocious noise with my nose and throat all night.

imgaine that.

i'm looking forward to curling up with my cpap for humidified forced air goodness tonight.
