You don't wear that mask 24/7 so just learn to pick your time and place to set a new standard of caring.

I have found that my mask comes off easier and faster than my clothes do.

RE: CPAPs are a major romance killer
Of course my post was not intended to be overly serious, Im in a committed relationship and we both joke out it. haha. But it just dawned on me the other day (as up until then i was primarily focused on getting to sleep), that this will take adjustment! lol.


And falling asleep mid act? Been there. But since Im in a committed relationship its more funny really. Tongue

Yes, it will. But it's definitely worth it.

RE: CPAPs are a major romance killer
Hehehe....In my case, it hasn't been a a killer, but a booster. Mrs. Psycho and I are both hose heads and now that we both actually get some sleep, the other "heavy breathing" in the bedroom has been improved.

RE: CPAPs are a major romance killer
What else could be more sexy than a hose hanging down from your face?. . . maybe snot running out your nose? Gee! Talk about natural birth control. The mental picture that you've painted is stuck in my mind.

Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.
