    I was on 200mg of Zoloft for 12.5 years following Iraq. I don't know if that was the right choice though. I still got depressed and sometimes suicidal. I couldn't cry at my best friend's funeral or anyone else's.

    I was diagnosed with sleep apnea a few years later due to having trouble sleeping and having dreams of "fading into a dark abyss" where I knew I was dying. Then I would take a breath and be back to "normal." Earlier this year I made a choice to get off my Zoloft. I have my emotions back, Yay!
    Doctors say there isn't a cure for sleep apnea. But I haven't needed my machine since stopping Zoloft back in January.
    I've been taking Yoga, losing weight, and feeling way more positive about my future than I have for many years. I sleep awesome now. Though I haven't been re-tested, I can honestly say I doubt I have SA anymore.

    Another War Vet friend of mine (like most of us) was put on an anti-depressant also. She has been taking Cymbalta for about a decade. She doesn't fit the normal bill of a person with sleep apnea. Usually it's overweight, a smoker, etc. She is athletic, a non-smoker (never smoked), eats healthy. She never had it before. She's about my age: mid 40's. I personally think there is a very strong correlation between taking antidepressants and having sleep apnea. Thoughts?
