In 2008 I found out I had sleep apnea. I went for a sleep study at Vandy, and they told me I was waking up 45 times a minute. I was never reaching REM (Rapid Eye Movement) level of sleep. It's the deepest form of sleep that restores the body to full functioning capacity. My neurologist prescribed a CPAP, and after I got to used to it I started getting a complete 8 hours of sleep a night.
Sleep is vital. It makes you a better person, and it makes you able to concentrate on your work. It adds years to your life too.
I'd be happy to tell you more about my journey with sleep apnea. Feel free to contact me through our website.
