If your partner complains that you snore during your sleep, or if you wake up in the morning feeling tired and grouchy, you may have a common sleep disorder called sleep apnea. This means that at night, your airway is blocked and you stop breathing during your sleep. If you have this condition, you need to find treatment right away to avoid further problems.

You really need to do your best to lose weight if you have sleep apnea. Those who have sleep apnea typically have a neck circumference of 17 inches or more. This excess weight around the throat causes the airway to collapse more easily during sleep. Reducing your weight by even ten pounds can have a beneficial impact on your sleep apnea.

Adjust your CPAP machine. Most machines come with default settings that might not correspond to your needs. You should be able to regulate the airflow: try different settings and choose one that seems to work for you. If you feel like your machine is not working like it should, try changing the settings again.

Improve your sleep apnea by slimming down a bit. Recent research showed dramatic improvements in overweight men who shed 25 pounds over a period of one year to reduce sleep apnea symptoms. In some cases, the weight loss resulted in a cure of sleep apnea where no further treatment of the condition was necessary.

Lose a bit of weight to get rid of your sleep apnea. Many people have corrected their apnea by losing weight. Even a few pounds can help your sleep apnea symptoms.

To help diagnose your sleep apnea, your doctor may ask you to keep a sleep log. This log is where you'll keep track of how much you sleep during the night, and other symptoms you may experience. Your partner can let you know if you snore too loudly, jerk your limbs, or stop breathing. Your doctor will then be able to tell if you suffer from sleep apnea.

Consider an alternative sleep apnea flower remedy therapy (also known as essence therapy). Vervain is used in this treatment for its calming and relaxing effects. This can help treat your symptoms, including insomnia problems associated with your apnea. As an added bonus, it also helps reduce overall stress and lower high blood pressure.

If you have difficulties sleeping because of your sleep apnea, you should avoid driving or operating dangerous machines. If you do not get a good night of sleep, take public transportation instead of driving to prevent accidents and do not take a job in a factory or on a construction site.

People who use alcohol, sedatives, and sleeping pills are far more likely to suffer from sleep apnea. This is because these drugs will relax the throat and cause their breathing to be impaired. Using these drugs before bedtime is more likely to cause sleep apnea than using these drugs during the day.

These tips were written especially for people who suffer from apnea, whether directly or indirectly as a bed partner. While it can be quite difficult to completely remove apnea from your life, there are ways to live with it, and these were touched on in this useful sleep apnea article.

I have many empty shoe boxes. Are you able to use them?


Cheryl,

Thank you so much for thinking of us! As of now, we do not have a need for any shoeboxes as our Summer Program wouldn't need them, and the school year program is not started up yet. But we sincerely appreciate your thoughtfulness and support.

We truly appreciate you thinking of us!

Hi, Received your letter about the re-branding process that will be going on for SMCC. Sounds like a great opportunity you have received. I would like to say that one thing that I hope you might still use in some way is the logo with the children. I have always liked this and I feel that it is very uplifting and shows the spirit of SMCC very well. Change is often good but I feel sometimes we "throw" away everything from the past and have no recognizable connection to our past history. So please ask them to consider using the current logo some way in the re-branding.
Thanks,
Janet McEvoy


Hello Janet!

We are so glad you received the letter! Thank you for your thoughtful input.

We are excited about the rebranding and hope to continue to hear from you as the process unfolds. Thank you also for your thoughtful comments about the logo. Although the logo will most likely evolve to better illustrate our services to the community, we hope to again capture that uplifting spirit!

We agree with the importance of preserving our history. It is a part of who we are as an organization, and a part of so many people?s lives. Please know we are diligently committed to preserving the history of SMCC as we move forward with this process, as so many have played (and will continue to play) a big part in our work and mission.

We are hoping to have updates both here on our website and on our Facebook page. We hope you'll stay with us and share your valuable thoughts throughout this process.

Thank you again, Janet!
SMCC
