Who Does Your Snoring Affect?

Posted by amykr on February 22, 2009

Today on the reason I do my job was evident.  if you watch this video:

You will See father snoring and how it disrupts the sleep of his new son.  Many of my patients who have sleep apnea would rather deny their sleep apnea, their snoring , their leg movement or their teeth grinding the fact is that it affect more then just themselves.  Your family needs to be taken into consideration as well. 

The treatment for these disorders are not always be simple or ideal but it will help everyone in the family.  Everyone will have more energy, less health issues and have a great night’s sleep.  Like this baby who is missing much of the time he should be growing because his father keeps him from going into a deep sleep.  Now think of the mom.  She works all day, comes home and cleans and cooks and plays all evening and finally when she is ready to go to sleep she has a long night where her sleep is not as restorative as it could be. 

So where do am I going with this other then to create a hypothetical situation.  I am asking people to consider what affect your health issues have on those who love you.
