Snore No More: Ask Noah
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Q: I'm a 24-year-old guy with a mild case of sleep apnea. I've been prescribed a special mouth guard, but don't wear it in front of my girlfriend. In the morning she complains that I snore. It's all very embarrassing. What should I do?
A: While I understand your concerns, sleep apnea is a medical health condition that requires treatment. I strongly urge you to follow your doctor's prescription and use the mouth guard every night.
You are having irrational fears regarding your girlfriend's reaction. The reality is this device will most likely stop or minimize the snoring. This will provide your girlfriend with fewer sleepless nights, and that's a gift rather than an imposition. Will she really place importance on how the snoring stops?
You're a 24-year-old man in a relationship, not a 15-year-old boy hoping to convince a girl to like him. I highly doubt your girlfriend will laugh maliciously and call you names.Regardless, it's your responsibility not to let this relationship take precedence over your physical health. Enjoy a good night's sleep and trust that your girlfriend won't leave you over a mouth guard! Thanks for reaching out. As always please send questions and comments to ASK NOAH at email@example.com. Have a profitable and peaceful week, Noah This article was written by an independent contributor, separate from TheStreet's regular news coverage.
