Health stuff, probably TMI

I had the pressure on my CPAP machine bumped up two notches this morning. My last sleep study showed I do a little better with a higher pressure, so I've been meaning to get over to the clinic with my machine to have it adjusted. Naturally, the clinic and work are in opposite directions and both keep office hours. We'll see how I feel after a week or so on the new pressure. It sure would be nice not to have to force myself to get out of bed every morning.

The last time I went to see my arthritis specialist, she asked if my toes ever change colors. I got to wondering about why they do that and went hunting on the web. It's something called Raynaud’s. From what I read, cold temperatures, stress and anxiety can trigger attacks, and the attacks are more common in the winter months. This has been one of the worst winters for me in terms of cold feet. At work, I'm near the front door and there's a serious draft that reaches under my desk. And wouldn't you know, we have ten inches of snow in the forecast for the weekend. I will be so happy when Spring really gets here.
