I finally got this simple sling you see advertised that gently holds my mouth closed.
I think it was ebay for like $30.
My wife says I don't even snore anymore, let alone stop breathing!

So I have a really good CPAP for sale I paid a grand for!
snoring is not sleep apnea.. its only a sign of it. You maybe have stopped making noise, but not the obstruction that is occuring in the back of the throat. Having you seen whether or not your oxygen level remains normal with the sling? Otherwise your brain is oxygen deficient during sleep.
