I've been judged for my sleep apnea by my boyfriend for viewing me unattractive with my mask on. Not long after getting my machine I noticed much less cuddling with him and sometime later he simply gave up on our relationship. The other reason for sleeping completely covered is my overall feeling of shame. :cry:

You should be *glad* you found out what kind of a douchebag the guy was, sooner rather than later.

You're better off without someone around that is that shallow.

Well, Facts about people who are overweight. They know it and don't have to be told. We are often experts on dieting. We often have apnea. Let's face it, being overweight and a thick neck measurement will add to apnea. Many, but not all people, will reduce or even mitigate apnea if a lot of weight is lost.

I am large, muscular, overweight, and have a thick neck. Heck everything about me is thick.

That being said. I work on losing, or at least not gaining any more weight for my moderately higher blood pressure, cholesterol, and apnea. I, like many others, after living with it for years, know that it's an addiction and periodically get into the mindset to work on it. I never really give up.

When someone, friend, or doctor, lets me know that I'm overweight, my first inkling is to say "You think so Sherlock?". But I just say, "yes I know" and leave it at that. Sometimes I add, "But I make up for it in charisma".

So, let it go.

You could try the shocked approach... glance down and go "HOLY smurf! WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN????"
