My name is Mandy, I'm a 26 year old woman. I'm not really sure how this works so I'm just gonna tell my story and get it out there. I got married when I was 23 to the man I'd been with since I was 18, after we got married it was like the world conspired against us. He broke 2 knees and a hip all separately but back to back. I spent the whole first year of my marriage working and going to school full time and taking care of him full time, he was on complete bed rest, couldn't even go to the restroom. After he finally healed and went back to work I got the call that my sister was being taken to the hospital. My sister died that night because she choked on a grape. Her husband and 2 little girls were all home, her husband was in the shower (he's a paramedic) and her 2 children were asleep. She was my best friend, my husband who's an only child couldn't understand my loss and just expected me to get back to normal. A few months after that I had a miscarriage and one of the few friends I had left had just moved to Alaska. So I planned a trip and spent a summer with her doing some soul searching, when I returned he had me served with divorce papers. while I was in Alaska he spent his time slandering my name to all my family and friends. He said things like I was crazy and that I was on every drug you could think of. Bear in mind I went though all of this without so much as a zanax. I've just finalized my very long drawn out divorce and have gotten a new job which required me to move further away from my family. I'm very close with my family and their pretty much all I have left. I'm feeling very lonely and don't know how to get out of this slump. I've always been a homebody and I'm not very comfortable going to bars. I'm just not sure what to do with my time these days, so its just me and my cat. I don't want to turn into that crazy cat lady

Hello,I just started with my CPAP machine (three days in). I can't fall asleep... Feel like I can't breathe, even though there is more than enough air! I think I am hyperventilating. Someone advised to hold my breath for slow count of five, then breathe normally. It helps, but only a little. Does it get better?
