I love cpap but on somedays, as I toss and turn, my compliance drops because I wakeup with my jaw just dangling crushing my air-pipe. What a wonderful feeling...NOT. Anyway, on days that I feel like a zombie, I don't perform as well at work. I then get questioned because I make mistakes at work, and keep asking the same questions that I had asked week. They picked up the scent on that and questioned me, I lied because I was forced to. I do not want to disclose my disability to my worker because these people are going to fire me otherwise. I had disclosed it before at my old workplace but was fired because of poor work performance and I don't want to happen here.

How do you guys cope with Work? There are vultures at the workplace wanting to have a moment to fire you.

Workplace rights do exists but they are rarely enforced.

i can't picture jaw dangling crushing air pipe. if you are at the point of being fired from your job, you need a complete physical exam to see what else is going on. cpap doesn't fix everything and apnea isn't to blame for everything.

You must address the issues you are having with your mask. Call your supply company and tell them you need to be refitted for a new mask. If you are waking up choking, then something is very wrong. It could be your mask, or you may need higher pressure Also, discuss with your pulmonologist your issues and he can also advise you about your work issues.

The problem is that I've lost a lot of weight and that has resulted in my sleep quality getting worse because my face structure changed. That has resulted in some unforseen and unintended consequences. The bad under bite aka weak chin causes a lot of issues.

You should get re-titrated and/or refitted for a mask if you've lost a substantial amount of weight. A lot of specialists will do this right away if you tell them about it. Many times, you will end up on a lower pressure, and a different mask may help. There are also a lot of products on the market to help with jaw placement/mouth opening during the night that you should look into.
