I'm tired of being the circus freak.

I had Sleep Apnea but talked to my Ears, Nose and Throat" doctor (who had the same surgery himself) and he was able to convince my insurance company (in less than 5 munutes), that a 60 minute surgery taking out my tonsils, my uvla, and a bunch of that extra hanging crap in my throat and I was cured of sleep apnea. I was in and out of the hospital where the surgery took place in four hours. I cannot snore now because everything back there to allow snoring is removed. Four of my friends have asked for and have gotten the surgery and are now sleeping like a babies every night with no CPAP machine ever again. Check it out. Ask the question. I had the operation in 2010 and am very thankful I made the decision to have the surgery. I had 10 days of a sore throat and now a lifetime of no problems.

I know the feeling. Even using a cpap machine I can not seem to get a good nights sleep which leaves me tired most of the day.
