Sleep Apnea: 2 Reasons You Shouldn’t Feel Guilty

twogoldAre you feeling guilty because you were just diagnosed with sleep apnea? Are you feeling bad in part because you have been doing such a disservice to your body for such a long time without recognizing it? Perhaps you feel somewhat guilt-ridden because your significant other who sleeps next to you at night has been suffering from some identical symptoms as you but you had no idea it was you causing those issues. Allow us to offer you a couple reasons you should feel positive about a future with sleep apnea treatment rather than bad about the past.

Reason #1: You Couldn’t Have Known

In most cases, patients have absolutely no idea that they are suffering from sleep apnea or that there is any reason to seek out sleep apnea treatment. In general, this sleep disorder causes a patient to wake up during the night. However, they fall asleep so quickly after waking that they tend to have zero memory of the night before. As a result they feel tired – and if their partner is woken up, so does the partner. However, the culprit is elusive because it is simply completely forgotten.

Reason #2: You’re Going To Get Treatment

Another reason you absolutely do not need to feel guilty about your sleep apnea – and not realizing it was affecting you – is the fact that you can now make things better by seeking sleep apnea treatment. In addition to allowing you to sleep, it will provide you with the following things:

  • Your partner will be able to sleep through the night again
  • You can say goodbye to frustrating symptoms like exhaustion
  • You can expect to protect yourself from associated long-term side effects, like heart problems and high blood pressure
