The Downside of CPAP Machines

I got to sleep a bit later than I’d have liked last night due to editing the pics and video and getting the post together for all the snowy goodness up on Mt. Charleston.  No biggie – I’d be fine.  It’s not like I’ve never done anything like that before, right?

Wrong.  You see, there’s one big problem with CPAP machines – they don’t work when there’s a power outage.  I woke up at 0630 to find the power out not just in my apartment (I did pay the bill :wink: ) but also in the surrounding area.  I’d planned on sleeping until 0700 or 0715 but I wasn’t about to try to go back to sleep – I tend to sleep through alarms and other loud things when I do that.

And when I can’t sleep with my CPAP machine, it’s not a good thing at all.  Six hours of sleep without that machine is like 45 minutes to the average person.  It’s really rather important.

Somehow I still managed to make it through the day.  Oh well, it could be worse, right?

See y’all tomorrow when I’m not about to doze off 8)

    Most all our elec. lines are underground, so (knock wood) it hardly ever goes out — but when it does, that means it will be out for a while.

    Hey, good thing you woke up when you did, instead of 1t 10:00 in the midle of the morning!! That would have been an “oops” moment.

  • I found your post really interesting and it has really improved my knowledge on the matter.
