Visit with Sleep Doctor

Just had  a visit with the sleep doctor.  Not much to report except that I have a very mild case of sleep apnea which is probably due to some mild weight gain.  So, lose weight and I will sleep better.  No need to get a CPAP machine for which I am very grateful.

I started taking  melatonin and am working to get the correct dose.  Started with 0.5 to 1.0 mg.  Had a good six hours sleep and felt rested but I didn't get my full 8 hours.  So I bumped up the dose and tried 1.8 mg.  Slept a lot.  Woke up and felt very tired.  So I will try 1.5 mg tonight.

Getting proper sleep is a big deal for my vision and hearing.  Started noticing my vision and hearing improved.
