Will I Ever Sleep Again

Here lately, whenever bedtime rolls around I start to feel panic, like I am having a heart attack all because of the B-PAP torture device I am forced to wear at night. I was going to take of photo of myself wearing the breathing mask, but I didn't want to have to post this under the horror category. Sponge Bob offered to model the mask for me, he is used to wearing a breathing mask whenever he visits his girlfriend Sandy the Squirrel.

As you can see, it is not a pretty sight, lucky for me my hubby doesn't wear his glasses to bed and therefore can't really see me in it. The mask does cause me to have a panic attack, two nights in a row now I have thought I was having a heart attack when I lay down to sleep. I called my doctor today to see if he could prescribe something to help me get to sleep, but haven't heard back from him yet.

The benefits of using the B-PAP are gong to be worth the struggle of getting used to wearing it, but it is going to take time and I can't rely on Sponge Bob to be there to help me out, he had to get back into the water before he dried out to much. I hope my doctor calls me tomorrow it is 2:15 in the morning and I have not been to bed yet because I know that dreaded face mask and machine will be waiting for me.

It does look uncomfortable- I hope you find a solution.

What's the B-PAP machine for? Does it treat sleep apnea? Sponge Bob didn't look to happy wearing that thing.

I'm sorry to learn you're experiencing so much anxiety about using the B-PAP machine, but looking at it and trying to imagine what it must feel like to wear it, I can understand your trepidation.

Oh, goodness. I understand; I couldn't even sleep with my retainer in! But it could save your life, so I hope it won't be that hard to get used to. Maybe wear it a bit while you are awake to habituate yourself more to the feeling?

You are right about the life saving aspect, that is why I won't give up on it.

I'm sure I will get used to it soon, but I had hope to put it on and fall asleep and live happily ever after.

Yes it is for sleep apnea & Sponge Bob didn't seem to mind.

I think the solution will be tine, it will take some time to adjust.

I am sorry you experienced this. I hope by now all is back to normal. I hope you come back here to write more.
