  1. I have a comment on one of your articles. This was the only way that I was able to contact you successfully, so my apologies.

    If you don’t mind, I see a flaw within this article. I agree that avoidance behaviors are a type of coping mechanism. However, you must take notice that there are both negative and positive types of coping mechanisms, in which avoidance behaviors fall under the negative.
    One can start avoiding some situations to reduce anxiety and distress for a temporal amount of time. However, it is strongly likely that, eventually, these small situations will inevitably start to increase. Once small and deamed insignificant avoidances will escalate into a repetitive cycle, where even situations that are unnecessary to avoid, will be avoided, thus worsening the state of distress previously inhibited.
    Once again, to restate, Avoidance Behaviors are under the umbrella of negative coping mechanisms. The way you worded it seemed as if it was neutral, and ineffective to creating future occurrences involving anxiety and inducing stress. It would be helpful to also include the positive forms of coping mechanism that will help one to get through a situation instead of avoiding it completely; such as humming, tapping one’s hands or feet, listening to music, etc.
    Thank you.

  2. Good day doc! I’m an Iraq war veteran with PTSD and have a host of sleep disturbances since I left the service back in 2010. I also recently got diagnosed with complex sleep apnea in August 2017. Like many combat veterans, I’m facing an uphill battle with the VA to get sleep apnea service connected as a secondary to PTSD. This is because many VA doctors and veterans know that PTSD aggravates sleep apnea but don’t know how. Even though there is countless of studies suggesting PTSD is prevalent in the majority of combat veterans, 3 out of 4 veterans get denied. I recently came upon your website about anxiety and sleep apneas and it has brought hope into my life knowing that there are outstanding doctors as yourself that understand the “how”. I refer many veterans to your website so that soon the VA will stop denying us. Thank you.

    1. I’m sorry you are having such difficulty getting the VA disability benefits for illnesses you incurred while on active duty. It’s a travesty. My recommendation is to see a psychiatrist who is not connected to the VA…hire one privately, and have that psychiatrist perform an independent evaluation on linking the sleep disorder with PTSD, and linking the time course while you were on active duty. The key is finding a psychiatrist who will go the extra mile to see it through with you until you receive the VA disability benefits that you rightly deserve. Thanks for referring your fellow Veterans to my website,

      Best Regards,
      Dr. Carlo
