Sleep? what's that?

It's now 5:30 AM and the status line up top says I last visited at 1:00 AM, 4 hours ago. I wish I could get more sleep. I haven't slept for more than this for months, and I nap in my chair in the afternoon or am groggy driving most days. I know it's bad for me but I cannot even get back to sleep after I wake up.
I have sleep apnea and have to use a machine to support my breathing when asleep. If I don't use it I sleep even less (wake up every one-and-a-half hours) and the tests show I'm really waking up every few seconds.
Some days I wear a diaper overnight; this was one of those days. I woke up (dry) and not needing to go, but shortly afterward I had to let it out. I don't flood in this type of diaper, and it held all I gave it. I took it off and put my sleep pants back on so I'm writing this covered only on my bottom half. I was warm for a while but now I feel the reduced temp that the house is kept at overnight. The dog has gone over to the spot where I usually sleep and plopped down there so I can't go back to sleep anyway.
Now I'm really rambling so I'd better stop.
