My husband has sleep apnea. We have not yet done a sleep study or been diagnosed officially, so he doesn't sleep with a machine, but it does make me kind of glad he snores because then I know he's still breathing!

Greetings Alise~

Hope You are having a Great Night! You bring forth a Good point for I had been diagnosed with sleep apnea 'several years' ago & didn't at the time wish to use the CPAP Machine & wear the mask. I tossed & turned so much that it was uncomfortable- (I made excuses)  The tricky part about NOT having the Machine is how it affects the Heart-Lungs (Future) because of my decision to NOT wear it... My Heart worsened...
I can also Understand about the snoring... I often stop breathing & wake up... catch myself... it is Strange but also can be tiring on Some occasions
especially due to air circulation... I had to have a Defibrillator put in to shock me when I cease to breathe
& my Significant Other was diagnosed with sleep apnea & would stop breathing in his sleep... I can Understand about the snoring... how that can bring forth Comfort knowing he is still breathing but if Your Husband could look into the *benefits* of the CPAP- it might help his Heart not become enlarged or have Complications later on...
My Significant passed on in 2000 from a Heart Attack while in recovery after a simple surgery & because I did not have a CPAP- My Cardiologist believed my Heart wouldn't be in Failure now but it is... so I Encourage to look deeper into the sleep apnea & to get an *official* Professional
diagnosis. It is quite difficult to reverse damage once it has been done... I imagine he would feel as if he had a more *restful* sleep than what he might be currently experiencing...
Best Wishes with this Journey... Thank You for sharing thisLaugh Blessings~
