National Sleep Awareness Week 2006 Starts Today

I’ll be ringing in National Sleep Awareness Week this evening by taking a follow-up sleep study tonight. As some of you know, I’m among the estimated 18 million Americans trying to deal with sleep apnea. My condition has lasted several years and is characterized as mild-to-moderate (but still difficult). I have made some significant improvement and have gotten praise from my doctors for doing everything they suggest.
As a result, I’ve become a big advocate for getting sleep-tested when the symptoms are apparent (male, over 40, snorer, 17″ neck size, to name a few). For more info, check out this article and Wikipedia entry.
If you have sleep apnea or know someone who does (or might have), the best resource I’ve found is Paretz Lavie’s excellent book, Restless Nights.
