Years I’ve Snored

For many years I’ve snored. From the time as a child, I’d go to sleepovers and would always be the first one out cold snoring my head off.

As I’ve gotten older my snoring has gotten loud enough to where I’m gasping for air. Fast forward to October of 2020, I went to the doctor for sinus trouble, he checked my tonsils and asked if I snored. I said yes, I do, and I’m sleepy during the day. My tonsils were normal size. Fast forward to November, I saw a sleep specialist and we confirmed I have sleep apnea with a sleep study. I’ve used CPAP since December of 2020.
