When someone is diagnosed with sleep apnea, it can be pretty traumatic — life changing and scary. They have this mask that now becomes a part of their routine, their life.
“My wife either has to look at me in this thing every night, or I keep her up all night with snoring?
“I’m going to visit grand kids and they will be scared of me.”
“I’m dating, how on earth can I wear this?”
Our goal to reduce stigma for sleep apnea sufferers so they can go through life feeling like they are improving health instead of treating an illness. To make them feel normal, and not like sick people, to make them feel that they are taking control of their health, not treating an illness.
