    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I have had apnea since I was a teenager. But it got much worse about ten years ago, to the point at which I thought I was mentally ill. It was actually the sleep deprivation.

    I went for the sleep test. An hour into it, he put me on the machine and I woke up six hours later feeling better than I had in years. He said I was waking up over ten times per hour before the mask.

    The noise doesn't bother me at all. In fact, I get a kick out of being machine assisted. I feel rather like a Borg going into regeneration mode. I can now sleep flat of my back with my legs elevated and get complete rest.

    and apnea can be fatal. an ENT i talked with said the most common cause is a piece of excess flesh in the air way that blocks its when your on your back. but i think maybe there are other reasons as well. the "flap" as he called it can be surgically removed.

    mself i always sleep on my side.

    I'll check into it.

    I'm fairly invested (about $1800) in my machines. I own two CPAPs and an oxygen concentrator. So I feel like if I have a heart attack in my sleep, I'm already on life support so it might help> :)

    In order for your memory to be improved the memory foam wedge must be surgically inserted IN your head.

    sheesh.
