    TTC Application Process

    Keep in mind there are different kinds of sleep apnea, and yet they seem to only focus on the soft palette when they do testing and turbinate hypertrophy gets overlooked. So if the testing seems to go sideways, have them broaden their scope to include the other apneas.

    Lunch was berry mix with yogurt and a very aromatic soft cheese on dense deli rye - it was heaven. Supper is wild kale slaw with a medley of baby tomatoes and multi grain croutons tossed in Three Diamond Dressing topped with chunks of Ermite St. Benoit blue cheese.

    TTC Application Process

    Just want to chime in here. There are different types of sleep apnea and OSD (Obstructive Sleep Disorder). I have Night Time (TH) Turbinate Hypertrophy and CPAP is not the answer to this. I've had it (TH) for about 10-15 years and only just getting a handle on it. Many doctors are totally ignorant about TH. OSD is serious, in addition to just causing daytime sleepiness, sleep disorders prevent your body from getting the deep slow wave restorative sleep that it needs. Without the slow wave deep sleep you will gain weight and will have high blood pressure. Without a proper OSD diagnosis, many doctors will just happily treat the symptoms and not the cause. I just wish I had known all this sooner. All these years I just thought I had a night time allergy sinus condition and high blood pressure from my weight gain (which I now know why I gained the weight since I have never been a heavy person normally). So, just in the event that your test for soft palate apnea is negative, keep in mind that is not the only 'apnea' there is. Sorry for being off topic, and good luck with your TTC application process.

    What are you eating right now?

    A bowl of chili. Experimenting with adding some sliced avocado to it. No different from having guacamole on a bean and beef burrito, when you think about it. So yeah, it's pretty tasty. Mixed Berries with frozen yogurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon for dessert.

    General FML moments

    So plumber ended up replacing two supply lines from the water supply to the taps, ended up costing $123.06 with senior discount !!! Now for the bad part... room mate discovered another leak where the drain pipe connects to the sink basin. I wish she had discovered it sooner it would have been one service call. Now another service call, another hour of labor charge. FML.
  13. Ah yes..ABC Gum = Already Been Chewed. 😄

    General FML moments

    Room mate discovered a pipe leak under the bathroom sink. I swear bad luck follows her around. Plumber will be over tomorrow afternoon. Estimate is about $150.00. At least that is fairly reasonable. My luck he will encounter difficulties and it will end up costing more. I sure hope not.
