This is a support group for people afflicted with sleep apnea. Our mission is to help them, so the more people who know about us the better, as far as I'm concerned.
Who knows, we may even become numerous enough to have a voice that's heard by legislators and manufacturers. We want laws that allow us to use our insurance to buy from online DME's at the same prices as brick and mortar DME's. This will make things more convenient for us and lower the prices we pay for equipment and for insurance.
We want manufacturers to recognize that we are the ones buying the machines. That way they will cater to our needs with better software applications. We might even make bricks obsolete.
I agree with you Sleepster, my sleep problems lead to me losing my job! Sleep problems AFFECT jobs! But nobody bothers to address this issue!! INCLUDING health insurance, no one from my job insurance ever addressed my sleep apnea.
