    Looks like bisley45 will be getting a one way trip on the Obama "free ride" plan and not have a job at all.

    Bisley, if you want a job, or to keep your job you better LIE, keep your sleep apnea issues under your hat. They will drop you like a rock, and that company doctor is NOT your friend. YOU don't pay him, the company does, think it through friend!

    There is a lot.. LOT more to sleep apnea than what has been posted in this thread.

    1) I have sleep apnea and have been under current and effective treatment since 2002. I have no problems getting my DOT medical card.

    2) I would probably be dead if I had not gotten treatment for sleep apnea.

    3) I have issues with the new guidelines for requiring testing for sleep apnea based on body mass index. But, its not ALL a scam. sleep apnea is a real condition that if you even THINK you have it.. get tested.

    4) There is now a poor driver in Kansas facing jail time because he had been diagnosed with sleep apea but.. he was not using his CPAP machine like he was supposed to. He had a fatal accident.

    Look into the topic of sleep apnea more .....

    Well, I'm on my second CPAP machine. Got into this back in 2001 or 2002. I also believe it saved my life. I KNOW it saved my job!

    I've been feeling tired and really grouchy, (more so than usual) lately. Last week they made an adjustment to my CPAP, so that the pressure was increased. Once again, it has made a tremendous difference in the way I feel. Of course I'm still grouchy, after all, I AM an old fart.:biggrin_2557: But at least I'm not so tired any more!:yes2557::biggrin_25518:
