Did you watch? Sleepless in America
Hi,
Did you all watch "Sleepless in America" on Sunday night. I recorded it and watched it tonight. Whilst it did not really give Sleep Apnea a lot of time, it certainly showed the results of sleep deprivation.
It should be required viewing for anyone who is thinking of giving up. The consequences of not getting a good nights sleep (wearing your mask) were displayed in a way that would make anybody with SA think twice about going to bed without CPAP. It was pretty intense for me having SA.
You can watch it on demand. National Geographic - Sleepless in America.
Don
Sorry - Didn't know it was a repeat but I stand by my post. You should watch it if you are even close to giving up.
Don

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

Thanks DonC,

I missed it, but will watch it OnDemand.

However, I have no intentions to ever stop Cpap. Sleep-well

I watched it in between the plethora of phone calls I had today. Only took me a little more than 4 hours. Rolleyes

Thank you! I went to the NatGeo site but it was asking for a TV provider login. I'm off to make popcorn. Wink

Interesting thing about that, NatGeo's video was only 53 minutes long (with commercials).
