So I took delivery of my positive pressure mask thing last night, it was dropped off by a tech who showed me how to use it and how to get telemetry and firmware updates and settings onto and off of it. (Memory sticks + snail mail, btw – very retro).
Last night was the first night of using it. It’s .. very weird. It’s a strange sensation to have something else doing your breathing for you. It kinda runs against hard-wired stuff in the psyche, breathing is something you do for YOURSELF. It’ll take quite some getting used to. No wonder post-Lava Vader was tetchy.
This morning, after sleeping with the thing doing it’s job last night, I feel .. weird, frankly. I don’t seem to be _tired_, but nor am I super-engergised. I did wake up a few times during the night, but mostly because of the previously mentioned uncomfortableness of the interface. This morning .. no sign of randomly falling asleep, and Annette did say that I slept very peacefully last night. This is good. But I do feel odd. I’m not at ease in my skin today.
I did notice that I got up this morning and wasn’t staggering around and bumping into things on the way from the bedroom to the shower. That’s new.
