I too loved my nasal pillows, but when I had to switch to a FFM it wasn't as bad as I'd expected. I think the nasal pillows helped me get used to things, so it wasn't a difficult transition. One advantage is that the FFM leaves no marks on my face in the morning. The nasal pillows straps and chin strap both left marks.
With the right pillow geometry you can probably continue to sleep on your side. I use the papillow but any pillow with a similar shape should work. It needs to have a small foot print, but be thick. This allows me to hang my head on the side.
