I have problems with my nose as well. I had to make myself adapt to a full face mask.
I went through 4 or 5 before I got to the Quattro FX.
If you have a deviated septum that pretty much narrows things down for you and eliminates using a nasal mask.
If anyone else here has a deviated septum and is using a nasal mask, feel free to chime in.
You can override the claustrophobia of the full face mask with a persistant desensitizing regimen.
Wear it as long as you can. Take a break.
Watch some or read a book.
Put it back on and keep watching TV or reading, etc.
Before you know it you have the thing on and you forget you are wearing it.
The only thing to fear, is fear itself.
Fear is your biggest enemy and you can conquer it in increments.
Take two steps forward and if things get angsty take *one* step back.
Wait for things to settle down and take another two steps forward.
Keep repeating this process and in a while you'll have conquered the issue!
Recite the poem till you remember it by heart:
"I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing......Only I will remain."
: Frank Herbert, Dune
When you first are starting out your sinuses are going to be sore, they are delicate structures and need to be toughened up a bit.
The sinus pain will fade away in a few weeks.
