A1: Came home from nam. I had it so bad and it just gets worse. See a doctor. If your not sleeping and stop breathing in your sleep. That's apnea. If you snore loudly. That's excess ski. In your throat. See a specialist. Now I hadn't had a nights sleep since I enlisted. My room mate got me to try some young living oils. I was amazed. Slept a solid 8 hrs. Welcome home brother.
