My name is Myron. I have been using a CPAP for several years . I don't remember when I started. I use a full face mask except in very hot weather (I don't have AC). My biggest problem is saliva that leaks from my mouth and wakes me up and I usually take the mask off for the rest of the night. I go to bed at 9:30 pm and am up at 4:30 am getting ready to get to the gym by 5. I don't know if "things" are better, worse and don't know how to tell either way. I think losing weight will help and I goal is to break 200. I have lost 17 lbs. and have 7 to go to break 200.
