So many people get a CPAP delivered to them, become frustrated and then give up. Others never even come to the realization that they have a common, chronic sleep disorder called Sleep Apnea -- they think it's their lot in life to be tired, irritable, miserable, depressed. One thing that is certain is that the outlook does not have to be so grim. Many people have successfully treated their Sleep Apnea through CPAP or other means and have turned around their lives.
This forum was started by Mike and other individuals who have sleep apnea and want to provide a friendly, open and inclusive forum to discuss anything and everything related to sleep apnea, a vastly under-diagnosed and commonly misunderstood condition.
If you want to wait for "experts" to give you the information and resources you need, this is not the place for you. If, however, you are an expert who puts your patients first or you are a patient ready to rely on yourself and the collective wisdom of a vibrant, intelligent community of individuals who have sleep apnea, and who recognize the importance of treating it properly, you've come to the right place. It's a place to ask questions and to answer the questions of others, to find out what works and what doesn't --- tips and tricks for managing CPAP and other treatment options. It's also a place where we can get to get to know each other. So ask a question, answer a question, post your picture or share with us your journey with sleep apnea. But most important, get involved. It's your health and nobody is better equipped than you to get it back on track.
