Quality of life

My snoring wakes the dead!

I was hit by a car in 1994 and received a massive head injury. It also left me with sleep apnoea and I am told I stop sleeping for a average of 19 times an hour... Plus my snoring wakes the dead! This was never a bother though and I got an average of 6 hours of wonderful restful sleep. I may stop breathing, but my brain won't let me die. I snore though and my wife complained; I had to get it checked out. I know wear a mask connected to a machine that takes over my breathing if ever I 'forget' to breathe. The trouble is that after four hours sleep I am wide awake and ready to face the world. I am so very tired though, but cannot go back to sleep :(
