I just signed up and seem to be the only person from Arkansas. Yeah me! I see many people are from Massachusetts. My wife is from Framingham. I’m from Alabama. (it’s a long story.)

I was working on a Facebook page to archive articles about sleep research and therapy. Putting it together, I stumbled upon MyApnea.org’s Facebook page which led me to the main website.

This seems like an awesome and intelligent resource for sleep apnea and support.

Quick history: I'm 56. Diagnosed with Central Sleep Apnea about ten years ago. I’m going back for sleep study #2 this week. I’m hoping to score a new CPAP machine in the process.

I’m looking forward to participation.

Joseph, welcome to the community! So happy you stumbled upon us! I love this site because it is centered around a great collaboration of patients and physicians working toward a common goal of enhancing the sleep apnea experience to be more comfortable for all. We are also about getting the message out about the symptoms of Sleep Apnea as so many are suffering and undiagnosed. So please help us spread the word for people to join MyApnea.Org and participate in the surveys to help collect data. The more members contributing will equate to a better outcome for everyone. Hope you are able to get a new CPAP machine! I just recently got a new machine. I feel like I have entered a new era of technology and left the dinosaur age behind! I had my original machine for almost 20 years.
