I was diagnosed with sleep apnea serendipitously – about eight years ago when I was on a retreat, my room partner happened to be a doctor. He luckily immediately spotted I had sleep apnea; a discovery that completely changed my life. I later realised that I had sleep apnea for about 30 years, and used to wake up in the middle of the night with a jerk, never knowing it was a severe apnea.
A number of years ago, I was playing tennis with my mate and we got talking about how my wife was complaining about my snoring. He told me he had a similar situation and was compelled by his wife to get tested, and discovered that he had sleep apnea. I told my wife and sheen couraged me to also get a sleep test done. I too was also diagnosed with sleep apnea.
