I sleep so heavy that I did not even realize it was happening until my husband frantically woke me one night freaking out that I was snoring and having apneas..and the machine was not running.
I swear, before I started therapy he would sit awake almost all night telling me to breathe, waking me close to tears(probably was in tears but not wanting to show it) to tell me I stopped breathing. Once on therapy he finally had a full nights sleep for the first time since we were married (about 24 years prior).
I'm only a sufferer, not a medical pro. What I post are my thoughts as a sufferer, not that of the ASAA. As a moderator on these forums I oversee the posting rules. This is the internet, always discuss what you read with your medical team.
