Glad you can wear something that goes over your nasal septum, mine becomes painful after 5 minutes of wearing. I'm also glad that the mask's lip holds your mouth closed. My experience is that my mouth falls back and then down. If I tighten the straps to account for this, my mouth still opens and pulls the mask down, causing it to leak around both my nose and sides of my mouth.

Burt, look up hybrid full face masks.  This class of mask covers the mouth and usually uses a nasal pillows interface so nothing covers the bridge of your nose.  It's a solution for people like you that need a full face, but don't tolerate the conventional "pilot" mask approach.
