RE: Really??
then he is long overdue for his sleep study and machine before he has some medical issues that come from not being treated for OSA.

RE: Really??
I agree, me50! I've begged him get checked out but we know how that goes! He is starting to soften a little, he's made the comment he should go a couple times now that I've been diagnosed. That's as much a reason I'm determined to make mine work as me feeling better! I'm fighting an uphill battle with him! Other than when he was seriously injured at work, I can count on one hand the number of times the man has been to the doctor in the last 27 years. Plus, he has a couple of friends who have OSA and hate their CPAPs. So, they've filled his head with horror stories!

I refused to deal with my OSA for years. Now I know what a fool was I. I love getting a good nights rest and having a better day for it.

Maybe this?

A smart man learns from his experiences.
A wise man learns form the experiences of others.
(Perhaps mention if he learns from your experience with cpap that makes him a Wise Man?)
A fool never learns at all.

I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

I like the way you think, Mark! I just plan on being the poster child for CPAP therapy!! No matter what obstacles I encounter, I will do my best to stay positive in front of him! Helps that he works out of town during the week and is only home on weekends!

Cool
