How can I overcome sleep-apnea?

I have sleep-apnea which apparently makes me 

useless to everyone. I need 12 to 14 hours/sleep 

per night, or I can't think straight. I would like to be 

more productive so I can help out, but don't have it 

in me.

    OK, my BS meter just lit up. I'll bet you have never been diagnosed, bcuz you're giving contradictory info. Sleep apnea does not mean you need MORE sleep. And no doctor would just write you off without a treatment plan. Plus, you're apparently ignorant of a very simple fact about sleep disorders-- Sleeping too much causes the exact same symptoms as sleep deprivation. If it's indeed 12-14 hrs, that's *over-sleeping which causes fatigue, mental fog, irritability, etc. Go see a doctor about having a sleep study done. By self-diagnosing & ignoring treatment options, you're only shooting yourself in the foot.
