My mom has sleep apnea and I don't know what to do.

by Michael

I don't know what to do anymore.

She has sleep apnea and she sometimes wakes up in the middle of the night unable to breathe and gasping for air.

Lately, she's been sick lately and she's been waking up every night with this inability to breathe.

I'm just really worried about her and I don't know what to do.

Is there some sort of website I can email her to scare her to the doctor or something else I can do to help her?


Dear Michael,

I have an idea, but you have to discuss with your father or other trustworthy relatives before starting.

I would choose the option with the digital night vision camcorder. You have to record the apnea episodes (when your mother stops breathing in sleep and when she gasps for air), because these episodes are the scariest moments.

So, when your mother is sleeping, you could try to record the apnea episodes with a cheap night vision camcorder.

Click here for an example of this type of recording.

Then, if you want, you could make a new YouTube username and make all the content private so that no one could see what you upload. If others see the video with your mother while sleeping, without her consent, she will be very angry.

So, you upload on YouTube the apnea episodes (remember...keep it private!), and send an email to your mother with the link of the clip. Also, you should include the link from this video and a link about sleep apnea side effects in your email.

Then you can send the email to your mother. And then pray...

I hope it helps. Don't be afraid to comment back.
