Annual CPAP check-up

  I passed with flying colors.
  A 4.0. Those were my doctor's exact words during my annual assessment of my CPAP use.
  It was literally a 5-minute session. I guess that's a good thing but I wonder how much the insurance company paid him for that.
  Anyway, he was pleased with my usage (missed 1 day out of 372) and my minimal breathing interruptions.
  I'm sharing this not to brag but to spread the word that if I can do it, anyone can. I feel for people who struggle with CPAP.
  Make it part of your lifestyle. Talk to your doctor - adjustments can be made if you are not comfortable.
