i am so, well, sleepy...

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

ok, who was the wise acre that came up with a sleep lab??? i would like to know, because, i for one, did very little sleeping.
i had to go for this study last night, and study, i say, i learned one thing, i didnt sleep well.
first they place all these pads all in your hair...with glue or sticky gel of some kind and run two down your gown or sleep shirt and down thru your pants...pjs, shorts, whatever u happen to be wearing....
then they hook u up to about 30 wires, more or less and tape one to the end of your finger.
then they tell u to do lots of tricks..i wanted to go on letterman and see if i could win on stupid human tricks.
blink, look this way then that way....
cough, snore, hold your breath, move your feet.
once all that is done, they tell u goodnight and happy sleeping.
how i did last night will determine if i have to go back tonight or not, and i am crossing my fingers that i do not....
but i bet i do.
i didnt sleep at all, well i dozed, then i woke up then i dozed then i woke up, turning over was a job in itself, trying not to pull loose the wires.
if i go back tonight i have to wear a cpap mask...that should be super loads of fun.

    Wow, that sure does not sound like fun, but thank you for sharing the information. I always wondered what sort of things they did at those sleep studies. You see the colleges ask for voluteers quite often. Now I know not to go!
    Hope it helps in your case!

    It should be worth all the trouble if the doctors can figure out why your not sleeping and if you need help to get a good nights sleep. So hang in there. emoticon
