[CPAP] New to the CPAP experience - questions
#11
I appreciate all the insight. The pressure is still 'high' for me, but I think I'm 'kind of' getting used to it though sleeping with the CPAP on for more than 5 hours is challenging. I tend to wake up a couple times, and then after I'm at 5 hours feel I deserve a 'break' and take it off for the last 2 hours. I'd like to get away from doing this and will continue to work towards doing it right.

I'm going to take the advice and change my machine to 'auto' today and see how it goes. I'm posting my most recent chart here from last night, and then will post the new one after I switch it to auto to do a comparison. Thank you again all.

Don't beat yourself up about your "failures". "Failure" is just another word for "learning". Understand what you have achieved already, be proud of it, and plan to do better tomorrow. Remember that success is always built on failure.

CPAP is a journey. Setbacks and sidetracks will happen, but don't treat them as a big deal, simply go on with the journey and you'll arrive eventually, perhaps sooner than you expect, or maybe later. But stay on the road and you'll get there.

The above is my opinion.  It is just possible that I may, occasionally, be mistaken.

I am neither a Doctor, nor any other kind of medical professional.

Everything put together sooner or later falls apart.
Your brain is not the boss.
Our forefathers took drugs.
He's no fun he fell right over.
