As we all know , being HCP's , there are some things we cant change .My husband is one of the. I swear he is going out of his way to d everything that could be wrong for a person to do to themselves.
He has sleep apnea. Ive explained to him I remember working in the EP lab of a pt that needed an AICD for an EF of 15, I believe. That guy was in his 50's, slightly overweight, but big time apnea. I never saw such an enlarged heart ever! i swear it was as wide as his whole chest!
Do you think that had any impact on my husband? No.
That his mother died at 60 from chf, obesity and copd? No. ( and she even wore her cpap faithfully!)
He tried it for a while. Couldnt wear it because he would wake up in a panic and rip it off his face and throw it( while half asleep) heaven forbid anyone touches him when he is asleep too- has such an awful startle reaction you'd probably get punched.
needless to say, we sleep in seperate quarters. And he wonders why I dont want to be around him. Duh.
Stubborness at its finenest. Actually theres a nother name for it that begins with an A , but we're not aloowed to say it here.
