See that guy? That’s me, Stephen! I’ve been living with Obstructive Sleep Apnea for about 10 years now. Many of those years were not kind to me. I used to think that the reason I was sluggish and would literally fall asleep at my desk was from the shift work I was working. Obviously that didn’t help, but the real reason I felt so bad was because my body simply wasn’t getting the rest that it required to function properly.
Even when I had the home test for sleep apnea, I still didn’t really believe it. The numbers on a chart don’t really hit home. It wasn’t until I downloaded a sleep test app for my iPhone and was able to hear for myself when I would gasp for breath. This happened repeatedly through the night, and quite honestly was horrible to listen to! It finally began to sink in that I needed to do something. After a few attempts with different CPAP machines, styles of masks, and respiratory therapists I found the right combination! Now my sleep is better than ever!
I created this site to help anyone who might have sleep apnea, or know someone who does. When doing my own research I felt that too many sites were all about statistics and products. I wanted to put a face to this very real problem. It’s not a pretty face… but it’s a face! 🙂
I hope that you find this information helpful.
