My wife had mentioned that I do snore occasionally, and I should take one of the home sleep tests. I thought it was a good idea, just to have an idea what my patients went through. I took it, and I do have a mild sleep apnea. My Apnea Hypotic Index is 10, and it's something where you don't realize some of the symptoms that you have. I didn't think I was any more tired than anyone else. I work long days, I work out every day with my family, and I just thought everyone was that tired. It wasn't until I wore my sleep appliance that I realized how much better I felt, how much more energy, how much more focused I was. An added benefit is my wife is much happier because she's now getting her sleep, and I'm not keeping her awake. She would certainly attest to that. She was prompting me to do that, and she's very happy now that I do have the appliance. It's helping me with my overall health. I feel better with it, more focused, more energy, and my wife is actually now getting her proper sleep, and getting into her REM sleep, and so she's not irritable. It's been a win-win for both of us.
