I have been using th c pap machine for a month and a half. I absolutely hate it BUT this is the best I have felt in a couple of years. No more depression,no more debilitating fatigue and I am exercising again, I'm losing weight and able to enjoy all the things I used to love. It isn't easy. It's angry making,but it sure beats the alternative.
Fyi. There is a company called Pad a Cheek that makes all kinds of coverings for c pap head gear and hoses at very reasonable prices, and will even custom make. I spent nearly an hour on the phone with the owner last week and got the absolute best advice and support I have had to date!
