Living with undiagnosed and untreated sleep apnea is tough. Your nights are spent choking and gasping for air and your days are filled with brain fog, endless fatigue, and in general misery. While a CPAP machine does help, it takes some getting used to. Until that time, it’s the same old routine of restless nights and blurry days.
And while you know that sleep is the only thing that can really make you feel better, humor is the next best thing to offer some relief. People have used humor to cope with difficult situations since the dawn of time. That’s why today we’re giving you these hilarious sleep apnea memes.
All joking aside, if you have sleep apnea or suspect you do, it is important to seek medical help. Sleep apnea can lead to a 2 to 3-fold greater risk of heart disease and diabetes. Because sleep apnea inevitably causes a lack of normal sleep, your overall health will suffer as sleep is absolutely essential for survival.
The gold standard treatment for sleep apnea is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. A CPAP machine steadily blows room air into your airways to keep them open. If you’ve tried CPAP therapy before and were unable to follow through, then you can try using an oral appliance as an alternative. Oral appliances like the Good Morning Snore Solution mouthpiece also help keep the airways from collapsing as you sleep and can be especially effective for mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea.
