Lou and his wife used to joke about it. “I come from a family of snorers,” he explained. “I warned my wife before she married me, so she had no excuse! Maria knew what she was getting into!” They used to joke how it was a good thing that they used to live near a train track so the sound of the trains at night would block out Lou’s snoring.
But as time went on, Lou noticed that he started to feel more and more fatigued during the day. “Around my late 30s, I started to feel tired all the time, even when I made sure to go to bed early the night before,” he said. “I would look in the mirror, and I looked way older than I was. It didn’t feel normal.” His wife noticed this before he did.
