Wink First week on therapy and doing pretty well
Well today is my first full week on therapy and outside of getting a good seal on my mask things are looking great, already finding that I am not as tired at the end of my day and starting with the first night I slept 6 hours which is more than I have slept in years!! I have been getting low 80's for scores and last night after trying a few things for a better seal achieved a 91 score WoohooSmile oh and my wife is very happy to be sleeping with me again tooCoffee

Hi Nytro_Mike,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
It's good to hear that your first week went well and that you're adjusting.
Much success as you continue your CPAP therapy, hang in there for more responses to your post.
Keep up the good work,.

I sacrificed my beard and went with sideburns instead. I think I got a good deal.
