These site are for support and to connect with people around the country and the world with common medical issues. I feel by accepting someone's friend request is not only healthy, but mentally stimulating. To see someone reaching out and being there for them is important. Why not accept a friend request and send out your own. It will make you feel better and know you have someone special to one on one with…

Amen to that. Sometimes we face things in our life that cause our faith to get shaky.

All you have to do is holler at one of us and we will share in your support. Many of us also have or had a husband that had heart problems also. I lived with it for two years and then it took my husband life. Find something to help you relieve the stress. If you have a dog love on it and cry your eyes and heart out to it. They always give us unconditional love. I cryed lots of time on my dogs head. It was a comfort.
We can call on the great "Comforter". He always hears our most private thoughts and will lighten our load, if we will let him. Hugs to you and remember, there are ones on this site who will share there thoughts and feelings with you on any concerns you might be burdened with,

All you have to do is look us up on this here machine. lol Hugs to you..

Glad to hear that you are a positive thinker! You will be better able to deal with the more bothersome days. I never thought that I may have RLS. After reading some of the comments, I now wonder. My wife says that she used to get bruises from me kicking her at night. She feels that when I am resting well with my cpap that I do not have so much movement all night long. I do relate to being nearly asleep and experiencing a startling jolt. Not able to go on to sleep after that. Please enjoy your membership.

Hi Ron. I try to be a positive thinker. Life at times has delt me a diiferent hand but with Gods help I always seem to be able to get my positive attitude on track again. Without Him, I could do nothing.
You mentioned waking up with a startling jolt. When you were tested about your cpap did they say anything to you about having RLS (restless leg syndrom).? I was having that problem,Big Time, and when they tested me for sleep-apnea they said I had a much biger problem with rls. After they got me straightened out on meds I have no problem with it now at all. Just a thought. I would wake up with jerks like that and sometimes felt like I was falling in thin air before I wokle up. And a lot of those times I couldn't go back to sleep either.
Good to be on this site. Hope you have a good week. Hugs…

I tested negative for sleep apnea but was still always tired. Frankly, I am testing "breathe-right" nose strips and so far so good.

countrygal2345 2012-02-02 13:55:53 -0600 Report

I tested negative also, but I still snore. Or so my daughter tells me. lol I have a friend that loves those "breath-right" strips. I have another friend whi told me they don't work. Toss up for me: I still haven't tried them. I stay tired also, but I have many "issues" and it just goes with the issues.
Anyway, I just wanted to tell you God Luck. I hope they help you. Thanks for your response. Have a great day HH. Hugs..

Redorangedog, Do you snore? That can be a sign of breathing problems while you sleep. Do you sleep through the night and feel refreshed when you wake up? Insomnia can be a warning sign of heart decline. It was only in retrospect that I recognized a sleep disturbance and fatigue as symptoms of worsening heart disease followed by infarctions. Red

Thats really good advice. Especialy because others here have the same or similar issues so we understand eachother. Our families only understand so much. Its good knowing theres people out there who understand.
