Yep. Dragon snores.
Call it what ever you want but it is truly revolting. Tonight he sounds like an elephant with a knotted trunk. Last night he sounded like a dying horse. My goal every night is to fall asleep before the sound effects get into the dangerous decibel level.
I almost never succeed.
He was a good Dragon and had a sleep study done. What a surprise! He has sleep apnea. I tried to tell them! The fancy test wasn't necessary. Even the neighbors know he has issues!
"It is treatable." They said. This machine will put him right to sleep with no snores.
That was several years ago.
This expensive compressor now sits beside the bed gathering dust.
If the pressure is turned up enough to help him, he develops another problem. I'll tell you about the last time he used that contraption.
He replaced all the parts he could with new. The water reservoir, tubing, mask and filters. He spent some time getting the straps to the mask adjusted just right. Everything was set to go. He put the mask on and was out before his head hit the pillow.
And I was still awake.
The snoring wasn't as loud but it was just enough to keep me awake. Around 1am the farting started. From fast and short to long and loud. At 2 he let one loose so loud that it woke him up! He looked so startled, I had to laugh. He sat up, took off the mask and ran for the bathroom.
That was months ago and he refuses to use the cpap now. I can't blame him. We set the pressure lower and it does no good. Increase the pressure just a little and it causes other problems.
Eventually I will fall asleep from exhaustion. Even with the chainsaw buzzing in my ear. For now, I am going to re-read a favorite book. I have to see if it ends the same way!
