Got a new DME
Well, 3 years into my therapy for sleep apnea, I finally got to see a sleep doc. Seemed very knowledgeable.

He told me that there was nothing wrong with what I had been doing and there was nothing wrong with my equipment but the problem was with my DME. I think that we all know which that DME is. The upshot is that he is changing my DME to a smaller, more customer oriented company.

I am stoked.

RE: Got a new DME
Ah Peyton, I am chuckling....."stoked". You California boys have a vocabulary all your own. Only teasing with you. I was actually born in San Diego.

Glad you are getting a new more user friendly DME. I am spoiled. The two guys at my DME are cpap users and they are the owners. I have coffee with them every couple weeks and hang out.

Funny but if the DME people are not also cpap users, it sort of like naturally skinny girls working at Weight Watchers. They just don't get it.

The supervisor of the respiratory specialists at my old DME was actually a cpap user and he gave me some crap information so that really made me unhappy and I had to raise holy hell just to get to talk to him. Well I hope things will improve.
