Both my parents' have Sleep Apnea. They have tried to get me to get tested for it, but I refuse.
The reason I feel this way is, I was born(1967) with a ventricular brain aneurysm, which in turn caused Hydrocephalus. The surgeries(six by 9yrs.-old, none since then) to clip the aneurysm, and to shunt me, caused Epilepsy. Also, As a result of the Hydrocephalus, I have a condition called Bruxism(grinding teeth) for which I have to use a special toothpaste at night, after brushing my teeth with regular toothpaste.
So, The emotional trauma from the surgeries, does not make me want to have a mask on my face while I sleep.
