I'm an average woman at best and always have been. But thank you.

I can relate. I tried for 13 months, but I don't think the CPAP helped me at all and I quit.

What is the reason, if I may be so nosy?

I didn't realize that you weren't using the CPAP any longer, Ravzie. I don't think you ever mentioned that. Sorry it didn't help.

I hope that you will benefit from one, CatLover.

Any benefit it gave me for reducing waking from sleep apnea had to be cancelled by it waking me up itself and making it harder than normal for me to fall asleep with it on.

Any movement that breaks the seal between mask and face causes the air to rush out with a great whoooosh. Since my mask did not cover my mouth, dropping my jaw ever so slightly would cause a great whooooosh out of my mouth. These always always happened.

I hope you can tolerate it better than I could, CatLover.

I mentioned before that I don't think I could ever tolerate a mask on my face when I'm trying to sleep, but I know that lot of people have them, and have been helped.

The people who can tolerate them love them, those that cannot refuse to use them....

Hubs misses his when he is away. But this is a man who falls asleep in 5 minutes tops and can sleep through a hurricane.

Why is it that men can fall asleep so easily?

The same reason that they can lose weight easily.

"Fair" is not guaranteed in anything.

I had to take a document to the city hall today. There is all kinds of different stone pavers, sidewalks with manhole covers and other such uneven dangers to pedestrians in Olde Towne. I found one.

Down on the hand, elbow, knee and hip. I am going to break me one of these days.

Oh no, when you posed the question about falling in the other thread, I was hoping that it wasn't because you had fallen. Some of the streets where I walk, further away from my house have sidewalks, and they are always so uneven - heaved up by tree roots I guess. I'm super careful to look down as I walk, for fear of tripping or stumbling and falling.

I hope you didn't injure anything. I recently read something about falling in the paper or a magazine. The article said if you are falling, not to brace yourself with your hand/arm. I guess that's a good way to break your arm. It said to try to land on a cushioned area of your body, like your butt. If you fall backwards, tuck your head down to your chest to prevent hitting in on a hard surface. Of course, falls can happen so suddenly, it's hard to remember the "rules" of falling.

My husband ran a 10K race a couple of weeks ago, and he slipped or stumbled and fell. He had read that article about falling and did what they said and wasn't injured. He was still hurting, but finished the race.

I have broken something more than once doing that, but one doesn't have time to think. And I was paying attention, believe it or not. Glad your hubs wasn't hurt.

Knock on wood, I've never broken a bone. But who knows what's to come in the future?
