I'm nursing a shiner today. I have sinus issues and apparently when they strike hard I make noises like an elephant seal at night. The missus thrashes around half-awake and managed to clock me hard in the eye at some point last night, so I look like a prizefighter today. I totally understand, and feel embarrassed and sad about it. I think it's only when I flop onto my back, so I always try to sleep on my sides, one or the other, but when you're asleep you're not so disciplined.

She thinks I have sleep apnea. I, as usual, kind of don't want to feed myself into the medical meat grinder, face thousands of dollars worth of tests and just be told "Well, you snore."

Tips? Thoughts? Commiseration?
