Ditto!  I not only have sleep apnea, but whatever they call that disorder of 
sleep related to the sleep cycle being unregulated because of no light.  I 
am a terrible night-owl and luckily I work from noon-8pm which helps some.

They contacted me about the sleep study and I would have done it but I am 
too plus-sized for their study, which upsets me!
advice from my cats: "meow when you feel like it."
