The things I do for my Chronic Fatigue- sheesh! So yesterday morning I started out at the Sleep Study doctor. He politely stuck a tube in my nose….wayyyy in my nose. Ow and ick. He then sent me away with this crazy contraption that I had to sleep with- fun. He set it to start at 11:15pm. I had to have it on my bod by then or it wouldn’t work. Dun Dun Dun.
The next part of my day was work- nothing crazy. But after work I joined my coworkers for dinner at a crazy drag queen restaurant. Of course I knew I had to be home by 10:30…to get the contraption on and get to bed! So, amazingly I felt “normal” at the drag restaurant- I had a lovely time! No tits in my face, thankfully. But like Cinderella I had to leave early in order to jump into bed! I, pathetically, was the first person to leave, and I booked my ass to the subway, starting to stress. Tick, tick, tick.
I got home in time- whew! I didn’t turn into a pumpkin! Well, I mean I strapped myself into this crazy contraption. And of course I slept horribly! Ever wake up in the middle of the night and feel like someone’s in the room with you? It was one of those nights and I had a near panic attack at 4am. Fun!
So the results of this fabulous test! I don’t have sleep apnea! Yea….I kinda knew that. And even though I felt like I slept like crap, the doc said I slept pretty solid. I guess I’ll check off “sleep study” from my Chronic Fatigue checklist.
And my date with the 27 year old was sweet! I think he’s coming over this weekend- gulp. What am I getting myself into? I don’t think I will make a very exciting girlfriend these days….and I’m actually pretty busy… being healthy. But as Bernie Siegel says “We’ll see”.
