This is a problem shared in so many ways.
Yes sleep is a big issue with a lot of us.
I have sleep apena and use a CPAP. I would enjoy finding someone who has good advise.
Thank you for thinking of this issue.

Following!!! This is very much needed! Thanks
I cant Sleep literally. I have PTSD,and i hate To tell, i unknowing hit my loving,wonderful hubby in my sleep. Yell out my sisters name (she pasted, we were so close we looked like twins! Sometimes i look in the mirror and see her, not me!) I have to stay up while everyone sleeps bc i feel weird. This is just the tip of everything. I wish i didnt dream, let alone remember every details of dreams. Sleep . i miss Sleep. I need sleep. Yes ive tried it all literally. Thats all i can say for now without tears.
I don’t Like, I sympathise. I had my version and it was a cakewalk compared to your experience.
Sleep ? Ugh more like naps
I too have Sleep Apnea. I sleep with a CPAP machine. I would like to hear from others with this medical problem.
My biggest problem is I have dry eye. My meds dry out my mouth and the CPAP although it has a humidifier my mouth is so dry it and my tounge hurt so bad all day. No amount of water ever makes it better.
I have tried Biotene and it has not helleped.
I received my Bipap after August diagnosis on October 11th right after my tonsillectomy on October 10th.
I was told nasal mask, I had been a mouth breather.
I recommend learning to close mouth no matter what mask. Also you can buy moisturizing mouth drops. Someone said Chapstick helps keeps lips moist & closed. I put my tongue to where I say ‘en’ keeps throat closed.
