    My doctor is an IDIOT.

    Ok, I have obstructive sleep apnea. I snore real bad and sometimes stop breathing. It's hereditary -- my dad and brother have it too.

    Anyway I've discovered over the years that for some reason my OSA goes away when I sleep on Disney property. Whether in a resort hotel, the campground or even a Disney ship, it doesn't matter. I sleep like a little mouse.

    I presented this discovery to my doctor and asked for a prescription to spend the rest of my life on Disney property. He refused to write it for me, even after I begged. He sort of laughed at me a little bit and that hurt my feelings.

    I can't imagine this! I mean they just came out with that study where those with sleep apnea are more at risk of stroke! And he won't write a prescription! OH MY! Where the AMA when you need them!

    Find where he lives and burn his house to the ground?

    Unfortunately, it sounds like your doc may have had a heartectomy at some point. At least, that's my diagnosis. But, I'm not a doctor so don't hold me to that.

    I wonder if stress creates your sleep apnea. Hmm, wonder if you could get grant money to study that. Seems a much longer and more comprehensive study involving YOU would be perfect.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.
