Insomnia and Apnea

I had a pretty bad night last night. I was awake a great deal. A LOT! (At least I didn’t get up.) Worse yet, I had an apnea event! VERY SCARY and upsetting! AND the CPAP was ON and running, which was even more scary and upsetting. I think my fear of apnea events (which could kill me, and which deprive me of oxygen and can kill brain cells and make me stupid) may affect my insomnia (though I still think food sensitivity is the primary cause of the insomnia. Lack of sleep makes me stupid, too! I also wonder if the WINE I had last night may have affected the sleep apnea event. (?) (By relaxing the muscles in the tongue and throat. That’s why I am not supposed to drink at night.)

Maybe now you will be scared straight? Take care of yourself, you hear?

Does that mean I'm not straight? I'm confused.

I am TRYING to take care of myself.

Keith always wants to serve wine with his spaghetti, but next time I think I'll avoid it.

I hate it when I want to crash but my brain remains active. I had
insomnia for a few years, starting when I was 6 years old. But it cured
itself. When I was young, my aunt would say, "Wash your feet. Maybe you
can't sleep because your feet are dusty." I did what she said and I've
developed the habit. So now, I never go to bed without washing my feet
first! It's funny. If you can't sleep, try talking to the
