I'm glad to hear the nasal mask feels better in terms of breathing than the pillows. Hubby feels the same way: He didn't like pillows at all when he tried them on, but the nasal mask doesn't bother him at all. Me? I'm the opposite: I sneezed controllably the whole time I tried to put a nasal mask on and my the top of my nose kept itching. So pillows work better for me.

Quote:This was interrupted by a brief fight I had with the mask which resulted in it coming completely apart. I managed to put it back together and then woke in sunlight with everything still intact. I took this top be a good sign.
I'm glad to hear that the middle of the night "fight" was brief and didn't seem to disturb the overall sleep too much.
