Copied and pasted from e-mail, why I might blow off my sleep doctor appointment Tuesday. Additional context: Not only is doctor useless, doctor is leaving this practice in three weeks, so honestly I have no idea what could possibly be accomplished by another meeting.

Brief version: I have terrible insomnia and haven't slept without aid since 2006. Trying to get to the bottom of it so I can stop being chemically dependent.

Sleep doc: "We're gonna test for apnea."

Me: "I had a negative sleep study in 2010, and none of my partners have ever reported any snoring."

Sleep doc: "Okay but we're gonna test for apnea."

*home sleep study*

Tech: "Yeah, you don't have apnea."

Sleep doc: "Okay we're gonna do this other test for apnea."

Insurance company: "...yeah, we're not gonna approve that because she pretty clearly does not have apnea."

Sleep doc: *comical shrug*
