No thanks. I need my mouth if I am stuffed up from being sick.

when they're sleeping isn't when they need their mouth taped shut

Seems like taking the tape off would be bad for mustaches. Especially bad since it's mustache march.

It's already a fad called mewling  isn't it?

I have terrible allergies and sinus problems and can't breathe through my nose. I need a CPAP so I can sleep well but have to use the full face mask or else I get no benefit.

Taping my mouth shut while I sleep would both resolve and create a problem: I'll never snore again but my wife has to figure out what to do with my insurance settlement.

This is a great way to find out if you have sleep apnea.

I mean, YOU won't find out because you'll be dead, but at least the cops who find your corpse a week later and the Coroner will know.

The sad thing is I think my wife's boyfriend would be the first to notice me dead in bed.

Dear gods I hate that thing.  I can't use the smaller masks -- I have to use the "fireman" mask.  Thing is, I have really seriously weird anxiety issues with my face; it took me the better part of a year to get used to my glasses once they became necessary.

I can't sleep with a full face CPAP, although I know I should use one.

*dies in sleep*

If I could breathe through my nose for the entire night I would, but my nose blocks up unless I'm sleeping on anything but my back. Apparently my genes overproduce on histamines. I have no known allergies, I rarely get sick but my nose never stops running.

I've got a sinus surgery scheduled in april and i'm hoping it will resolve everything.  When the ENT looked up there, they said one side is 80 percent blocked and the other is 50.  I hate being a mouth breather and do everything i can consciously to not do it, because its embarassing.  but you can't control it sleeping.

If i taped my mouth shut i wouldnt die..probably.  but i dont want to take that chance.  I'm not looking forward to having bone scraped out of my nose but am sure looking forward to how i will likely feel a couple weeks later.

Oh they moved it from November to March?  Did they finally realize that Mo-vember had some unexpected implications?
