I have moderate insomnia (if I'm tired enough I can get past it), severe sleep apnea (I averaged something around 85 events per hour - that's a minimum of 14 minutes per hour I just wasn't breathing), and a crappy job (the pay is fine, but the work is as stifling as it can be and my co-worker uses me as a punching bag to relieve her stress).
