RNPembe, a couple of tips for newbies especially with FFM's that help me are, have your hose coming from above your head either over a bed head or you can buy some products over the net or make one yourself if you are handy. This does two things, it saves you getting tangled and the mask gets pulled up instead of down. The second thing is use mask liners, you can buy them over the net or you can make your own fairly cheaply, I can give you the instructions if you want. Some insurance companies also cover them, you may want to check them out if you have insurance. Try not to tighten your straps too much, straps that are too tight can be as bad as straps that are too loose. Good luck and let us know how you go.
OK awesome. My machine is on a shelf sort of above me so that should be okay I think. I'm curious about the liners so I'd be open to learning more. Thanks so much.
