Woke up with a huge gasp of air intake

Hi everyone! I'm up early because I was startled awake. I have sleep apnea and my brain woke me up with a jolt. I have a CPAP to wear while asleep but I don't wear it because I still have problems with having gasping breaths. I just wear oxygen to keep my levels up, buy apparently I lost it off my face during the night. I have aspirated with positive pressure going down my trachea, so I just don't want to wear it.

I am sorry to hear it. does it make you have sleep deprivation? I sometimes like that too. I realized I snore when I sleep, but sometimes I think I don't breath enough that it wakes me up just to breathe. does the oxygen really help?
