  1. I met my husband on a blind date but he was not one I was set up. He just was there and knew my girlfriend (blind date was double date) and we have been together since that night. poor guy I was set up was so not my type (nor was I his) met his lobster a few months later.
  2. depends where the blockage is. maybe a dental applience made by a dentist. not all snoring is apnea related and treated with cpap. positional including elevated is one way clearing out nasal passages so one can sleep with mouth closed
  3. we have done 3 years of Foundations. we are in SSL 2 we are going to song school Greek and LFC next year. We are doing this one because she asked two for word study.
  4. I work overnights. black out curtain and noise machine are great. I tend to be in main level and the school room family room and toy room are all down stairs so that also helps
  5. sleep paralysis only happens in REM sleep. as your body naturally does that to allow your brains activity but not involve the body so it can rest. it would be quite interesting to watch your sleep (brainwaves) on a night/day where this was occurring
  6. 40 pregnant with a complete surprise as I was told I couldn't have any more. every thing is going very good here still working. 48hrs overnight. luckily most people can't tell I am pregnant so no unwanted advice or touching. Dr is very supportive and this pregnancy is already easier that. the one in my early 30s
  7. what about this movie http://m.imdb.com/title/tt1785395/
  8. when u have a low ahi and a high rdi they will order a cpap titration. ahi. apnea/hypopnea. index and respiratory disturbance index
  9. were they married during his military time? She may have benefits theres
  10. we are walking this journey with my mom. she gas suspected lewy body and Parkinson's and RA she is now on the down hill slide here if you ever wanna talk
  11. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1585101931?pc_redir=1409979661&robot_redir=1 have you seen this? I am thinking about it for our Latin coop
  12. Meds for bi poplar can cause sleep issues all on their own. I recommend getting a sleep study to see how they are effecting the brainwaves and if that combo is causing arousal and or breathing issues (not obstructive sleep apnea). Maybe talk to the dr about adjusting dose. Requesting blood work on Vit D levels, potassium and Vit B. Also I recommend trying to keep a strict as she can routine. Same wake same bed same eating and drinking. Limit artificial sugar and caffeine to bare minimum (or none). That way the body knows what to expect and learns to shut down. Even if you get a little sleep get up and go about routine (be careful driving and avoid if necessary) Good luck
  13. What kind of sleep problems is she/he having? Trouble at sleep onset? Trouble staying asleep? What medical conditions does this person have out side of normal stress? How much caffeine? Is this person a smoker? There is no magic pill. I have worked in sleep for a lot of years. If you want to PM me their answers I will give what solutions I think could work or have work for others in the past.
