Sleep Apnea kills Wrestler
Michael Durham, AKA Johnny Grunge -- don't ask me -- died at age 39 this week from complications from sleep apnea, which I also have. (That's me in the CPAP mask, used to treat the condition; when I sleep, air is blown up my nose -- sounds fun, eh? -- to keep my airways open; the chinstrap keeps my mouth shut, so the air doesn't escape). The condition is related to being overweight, so I guess I better not skip today's trip to the gym after all...
