It’s been over two weeks since my last blog and most of you know that it is because I recently underwent surgery to correct what was called, Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
On June 12th I went in and had my tonsils and adenoids removed and they shaved my deviated septum. I spent the past 16 days in pain, unable to eat and feeling like someone punched me in the face with an anchor.
I would do it again in a heartbeat because it most likely saved me life.
Sleep Apnea is not just “someone who can’t get a good night’s rest”.
I was told in my sleep study that I stopped breathing on average 65 times an hour. I was basically choking to death at night. My oxygen level at night was so low, that I wasn’t burning fat or able to create muscle.
It’s been 16 days since my surgery and I have lost well over 30 lbs, sleep like a dream and have more energy than I’ve had since college. I even feel like my food digests better.
If you or someone you love has sleep apnea, go see an ENT and get a sleep study done. It just might save your life.
That’s the end of my preaching. Great blogs coming your way so keep your eyes peeled and spread the word about my blog.
You recently made your debut as "Scarlett" on a recent episode of the four-time Emmy award-winning series MadMen on AMC. What was it like to be on set with veteran actors like Jon Hamm, Jared Harris, Christina Henricks and John Slattery?
They are all so seasoned and welcoming. In the moments when it was time to work they were really focused and professional.
