These past couple of years have been a bit of a whirlwind regarding my health. First I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes and hypertension. Then after struggling with extreme fatigue, brain fog, lack of motivation on most days, I decided to visit a psychiatrist for help. I was diagnosed with ADHD, GAD (Anxiety) and Bipolar. I was prescribed antipsychotics; one being named Zyprexa which was supposed to help me sleep because I was having trouble staying asleep… After having taken it for two nights in which I slept easily 10+ hours, that was it for me and the drugs. I was like a zombie for the rest of the day, just flat, my brain was essentially paused

Fast forward to today, I have an appointment with my primary doctor in a week. I will be requesting a referral to have a sleep study done at a location I have already called that accepts my insurance plan. I am also prepared to order a kit online for an at home test. Getting a diagnosis for sleep apnea would be bittersweet to me. With treatment at least I would be able to sleep properly, get a good nights rest, which is necessary for all of us. It would be the start of my true healing

Thank you for reading, this is me venting Appreciate all of you who shared with me on my last post

Much love and blessings to you all,

Alex ✌️
