Leah here. Again. I've just spent my third night with my new CPAP and it wasn't pretty...
By three a.m., I had snatched off the headgear, hoping to get a few hours of sleep before church.
My problem all night was that I didn't feel like I could breathe. The nasal pillow kept moving about when I moved. Possibly I haven't gotten the straps on the headgear tight enough yet. I'm also thinking that the nasal pillow the tech chose for me may not be large enough. I will try the larger (small instead of "petite") size tonight and enlist my husband's help with adjusting the headgear. The other problem I had was that the humidity in the bedroom was low, resulting in a dry mouth and nose.
I AM NOT GIVING UP. I will struggle and adjust until I get it right. This is not easy, but it is also not impossible!
If anyone has gone through this ordeal, please give me some insight and support!
(By the way, I have also been diagnosed with dementia...)
