My bags are packed and I'm ready to go! I've assumed that the bags under my eyes that have gotten worse after CPAP were because 1, the full face mask pushes on my cheeks right under my eyes, and my nose right beside my eyes. And 2, sometimes tiny leaks get in my eyes when I move. I've also got eye boogars when I wake up now. I don't take this too seriously, because I ALWAYS had circles under my eyes. I thought it was due to tiredness, but I also have chronic sinus infections and allergies, so it could have been that. So now they're more puffy. It's not like I was a model before.
BUT! Cucumbers work WAY better than teabags. I've experimented with that. I tried a tea bag on one eye, and not the other, to see how well a tea bag really worked, and it worked pretty well. Then later, when I suspected that the cucumber slices were working better, I put a cucumber slice on one eye, and a teabag on the other. Cucumber won, hands down.
The other night, and this must have been attractive, I went to sleep with one of those gell eyemasks on, to hold on the half cucumber slices under my eyes, and my CPAP mask over that. <sigh> The things we go through.
Maybe the air is just blowing up the baloons under our eyes, you think?
