Question: Dear Luise: I am sending a comment to you-First, let me thank you for all of your time, effort, and strength you share with us. Your wisdom is priceless! I read one of your responses re loss of a son-I read you lost your son to sleep apnea a number of years ago-I am so sorry. I was DX with sleep apnea a couple years ago-that was when I lost my son as well (in a different way)-he moved out w/i days, and his girlfriend smirked at me as I tried to share with them the grief of the DX. Several of my family members have since been DX-My son and his GF have said I am ‘just crazy.’ There are so many things beyond our understanding-we must somehow look for the message and find the hope that can change our lives and maybe someone else’s-Shalom. J.
Answer: Dear J.: Thank you for your kind remarks and observations. I really appreciate positive feedback.
Ten years ago, when I lost my eldest son to sleep apnea, it was viewed as a minor inconvenience that interrupted sleep and disturbed others. That’s the least of it! I’m so sorry you have to deal with it, too…and are misunderstood in the process. It’s no joke…it’s lethal!
