So I have mild sleep apnea according to my doctor and the test I took earlier this month but every now and then I’ll get a few nights where I have difficulty falling asleep because my breathing is so shallow and I stop breathing the moment I start to fall asleep.

Last night it was really bad. I haven’t been able to sleep at all. I keep gasping for air as soon as I start to fall asleep. Even when I’m awake it feels like my breathing is shallow. It feels like when I breathe in the air isn’t getting down to my lungs.

I don’t know what to do. I’ve tried everything that’s helped in the past but nothing has helped. It’s currently 8 am and I need to sleep!

I can’t get in to see my doctor until later this week. What am I supposed to do?
