I got my APAP machine 7 days ago. I thought I would be going through he** for months trying to get used to the thing.
I wore my nasal mask for a few hours before I went to be the first night just to get used to the feel. I went to sleep that night and never woke up until the alarm went off at 5am the next morning. For the last 7 nights I put my mask, my machine comes on, I go to sleep and then it ramps up, I guess.
I never wake up. The pressure never bothers me during the night. I never wake up and find my mask across the room. I don't have any air leaks around my mask and I had .6 events per hour last night, which is high for me.
I feel awake and good during the day. I don't have to take naps in my car during lunch time. I don't feel like I'm not going to make it through the day at 8 o'clock in the morning. I don't come home from work and go right to sleep any more.
