I Love My CPAP Machine

Luke Ford writes: More than anything, I think my CPAP machine has dramatically improved my life over the past three months.

A doctor prescribed it to me to help with my sleep apnea (which I only discovered at the end of 2010).

I’m not conscious of getting more hours of sleep. I estimate I get about five hours a night (even though I am typically in bed for nine).

I just know that I wake up feeling better. I used to wake up a lot with a headache from oxygen deprivation. That doesn’t happen any more, even when I have a lousy night’s sleep.

I get up, I take my cold shower, and I go for my 30-minute walk and I’m ready to bench press my day.
