Sleep Apnea

I started snoring 4 years ago. At first, it was a very soft, barely audible snore. As time past, the snoring got worst. By spring this year, I was snoring so loud, it was keeping everyone in the house awake.

My general doctor sent me for a sleep apnea test. The first step was to wear an apparel that looked like a watch. It monitored my heartbeat and my oxygen level.

The results show that I had server sleep apnea.

The next step was to try a CEPAC machine for a week that monitored how much oxygen I needed to counter the sleep apnea and let me sleep. At first, I didn’t feel any change. I was still exhausted. I always wanted to sleep. I didn’t see how the machine was helping until I had to give it back. I then crashed. I wasn’t functional.

I now have my own machine and I love it.

Did you know that you cannot snore and dream at the same time?

Psychologists say that having a good laugh and a good night sleep are the best cures for anything. When you have sleep apnea, a good night sleep is impossible without help.

Many are afraid that needing a mask to sleep will kill the romance in the bedroom. Let me assure you that it does not.
