Waiting, But Not So Patiently — 8 Comments

  1. This brain thingy exerciser sounds good. But you must be right about there being too many variables in dealing with your conditions. This doctor does seem to really be working to see what to do next. Maybe this trial and error will pay off soon.

    Who wouldn’t be depressed and discouraged with dealing with this? I’m so sorry. I hope there’ll be some answers before too long.

  2. I don’t tell you often enough, Shelia, how much I appreciate your continued visits and comments on my posts. It really does help, whether you realize it or not.

  3. I have always said, even with all of our advanced knowledge and amazing technology, medical science is nothing short of an “exact guessing game.”

    I am glad you have a doctor that is so dedicated. I have had the privelege of working with quite q few of them actually, unfortunately their accomplishments always seem to be overshadowed in the public eye by the misdoings of less reputable MD’s.

    As for the brain fog, it probably is the combination of the C-PAP and the mental exercises that you are noticing. I myself wouldn’t go a day without either of them…my c-pap because I do sleep so much better, and my New York Times Crossword Puzzles becuase…well, because I like them – I fine the crosswords to be both frustrating and highly enjoyable at the same time.

  4. Judging by all the typo’s in the reply I just posted, I had better do an extra puzzle today to clear off a little more of that fog…

  5. I know what you meant about the typos. I choose to edit furously most of the time, but I’ll leave this one ust th eway it comes out, in your honor! LO

  6. I would love to have you try these BrainTrainer exercises, Joe. They push the brain in a completely different direction than Soduko or Crossword Puzzles. It costs $9.95 for 3 months, which should be plenty of time to find out of it’s worthwhile. If you should happen to decide to give it a try, please let me know, as I would be very interested in where you fall in the percentile rankings. I’m staying in the mid to high 20’s for my age range. Some of that is attributable to slow hand reaction time, but most of it is from being slow to process the constant decisions that are required in the exercises.

    I’m sure you’re right that the lift of some of the fog is a combination of the cpap and the exercises. And I have yet to put two nights together with more than 6 hours sleep with it.

  7. I checked out the site. It was pretty neat. I do plan on signing up for the trial period, probably at the end of next week. I’ll let you know when I do.
