find this funny. As you know I self-diagnosed and am self-treating.
It took me many years to finally connect all the dots enough to
make a decision to find out about OSA here was one of the motivating
I only started to connect the dots because of snoring. The really funny thing is that for years I had an irresistible need to nap in the daytime. I have an African Grey parrot that "napped" with me. She picked up my snoring pattern. These birds imitate speech and sounds very accurately. Anytime I sat down in my "nap chair" to watch TV, she would "snore" complete with the snort and gasp of a good long apnea event. I'd yell at her to stop so we could watch TV because she'd do it over and over. That was a big final part of the start of my search about sleep apnea. My wife said "See, Chelsea is copying your snoring. That's what I have to listen to." That was just another puzzle
