Do you ever skip a night with the machine?
I have skipped a night before a couple times. Felt like I was in Zombie Land all the next day.

Went without mine last July 3. Was in the ER with diverticulitis and in so much pain sleep was not a a part of the equation.

My wife brought my machine to me in the hospital the next morning, and I spent the day in blissful sleep Smile

I'm convinced I sleep SO much better with my machine that I would really prefer not to sleep without it.

Now, I do change masks around to get rid of some soreness. But I also try and change my undies daily, as well Wink

The only time I skip a night is when I get sinus issues with the accompanying cough. Makes it too hard to keep the mask on, so I move to the recliner. Other than that, the only time I remember not intentionally using my machine was the first night on our trip last summer. Had a late checkin in at the hotel and crashed around midnight. Up at 4 to make the flight. Did use it on the other end and the rest of the trip. Didn't feel too bad considering all the airplane and airport time.
