am looking for help and support with a stubborn case of sleep apnea.
I am looking for someone with a sleep story similar to mine who FINALLY got the help they needed.
Can you recommend a strategy, person or support group that might be able to throw me a lifeline?
I deally, a peer or support group that lived a story similar to mine and FOUND HELP would be a gift.
"My name is Gene.
I have been living with mild obstructive sleep apnea for a couple of years.
I have tried a CPAP machine and dental appliance with no success. I recently consulted with a doctor about surgical corrections like fixing my deviated septum or having my tonsils out.
I have not been able to successfully complete an overnight sleep study because of the discomfort associated with all of the sensory devices they attach to your body.
I have done one home test successfully. I now have a dream station machine, but its not helping.
I would love to lose weight but its a Catch 22 because I don’t have the energy to exercise.
I’m tired of doctors NOT listening to my story and just repeating the same old platitudes and instructions."
So you see what I’m dealing with.
I am writing to ask for any suggestions or resources that might exist here in the NY/NJ metropolitan area.
I thank you in advance and send my best wishes for your work.
