I have difficulty sleeping as I either can't fall asleep or wake up feeling short of breathe.Tonight is really bad as I have just lost my granny.It has been getting worse since my father died but granny is a second whammie.Doc says it's anxiety but is still testing me for sleep apnea.Living in Canada you wait forever to get medical appointments and I have already waited 3 months [still have one more week to go] for a sleep test. I am feeling pretty exhausted these days.Thankful for Josh though as he helps me relax and not feel so frightened.This is starting to affect my work a little as I work in physiotherapy and now for the first time in eleven years I find myself not enjoying it as much.It makes me sad as I truly am one of those people who loves what they do.It is such an exciting field
and you share and grow every day.The people I treat are so wonderful and I love to help them regain their health.They work so hard and are very brave as they are mostly multi-area injuries[90% are car accident victims]and have to over come many difficulties.I love to give them as much back as I can.
