"I would wake up in the morning feeling like I was at the end of the day. At times, it wasn't easy to cope. Everything gets on top of you because you're so tired. I had also been going through menopause and was dealing with that as well.
At night, I was breathing so heavily and noisily that my husband had to sleep in another room. At times, I was literally waking up gasping for breath. I was baffled, because I didn't fit the stereotype mold, which is usually that of an overweight male.
I felt so unladylike!
Now that I've been treated I look forward to going to bed. I give my husband a goodnight kiss, turn on my ResMed device, and take comfort in knowing my husband will also be having a good night's sleep."
