And here's my first zero

Hi - You're doing great if you are already getting readings of 0.5. I have only once had a reading that low, and I've been using the CPAP for about 8 months now. My doctor said any reading I have below 5.0 is good. One thing I noticed - it took me at least 3 months to get used to the machine. Even when I started getting good AHI readings I felt like I was tired in the day and I never felt like I had a good night's sleep. After about 3 months of use, things changed. I stopped waking up every hour, and I stopped being tired in the afternoon.

Stick with it - I'll bet you will reach a point where it's really an asset to how you feel.

JaneAM, thanks for your input.

Like everybody here says, determination to stick with the therapy is the key to success. I didn't have it when I was diagnosed originally a few years ago, but this time I am not going to quit.

Cheers!
