At night I cannot sleep without my mask. If I take an intentional nap then too I need my machine. But, oddly, if I just fall asleep during the day I sleep like a baby, snoring of course, no mask at all. Strange.

Don't know. They are mutually exclusive conditions that cannot be replicated without more advanced time travel apparatus than we currently have available. .

I can't imagine going without my pap. Camping, vacations, etc. It will be travelling with me.
