RE: Really??
Hang in there, us guys can be hard headed sometimes. My ex tried to convince me for years to go in and get checked out. I finally went in for the sleep study 18 months ago after my PCP convinced me it was time.

RE: Really??
TyroneShoes, I'm not sure that's a good idea! He would hog all the air just like he does the covers!

SleepyWabbit, when he makes his excuses I usually respond by asking if his life insurance is up to date! Or at random times I will point out a good looking guy and wonder out loud if he will be available once I'm a widow. Too-funny

Kidding aside, he's coming around. I haven't been married to him for this long and not figured out a thing or two about how to get him to do what I want!

Darth Vader is not a bad nick... mine calls me "Elephant" Angry

after he sees how much better you feel, he will be jealous... and he will go get his sleep study! that is what happened to mine - but his sleep disordered breathing turned out to be subclinical despite the chainsaw performance

هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه
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

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!

Looking like Darth Vader is awesome and that should do the trick

RE: Really??
When I first started this, I had a similar spat with my wife after she cracked her funny-to-her jokes about the way I looked with my mask on. After stewing about it a few days I said that I felt what she said was uncalled for particularly now that I am doing something about my health that she has nagged on me about for years. Now I get to here her snoring every hour, on the hour, when I wake up to mask leaks. Annoyed-and-disappointed

Darth Vader role play is the best part of CPAP!
