Guys I got a brick.

I would be more concerned with treating my Apnea... once you have adapted to therapy compliance will come.

Well, if I don't have 4 hours a night for the first 30 days, I can't keep my machine.

Have you tried downloading encore Pro 2 to try reading your AHI?  Getting your AHI would be the first step in figuring out how to help you!  Granted if you're not sleeping at all it won't matter, so figuring out how to fall asleep might come first.

Yea, I didn't sleep. Am I still compliant? I might just take my card to my DME every couple of days, because she said she would read my AHI for free. So yea, plus, I only live half a mile from her. Am I still compliant if my mask leaked some and I didn't sleep at all lol? The machine says I had a successful 4.1 hour night. My ass lol.

UK.  I know this is stressful, and certainly takes time getting used to, but you may not need to be as reliant on the DME as you feel.  Try to download Encore Pro 2.  It's likely the same software your sleep doc will use and then we can help you try to get the most out of your therapy.  It is available on this forum at This LINK.

I will try, but no promises because my computer is really old and slow. I will try though. I really appreciate all the help everyone here has gave me. It really means a lot.

Please go return the machine. For weeks we told you this place was a rip-off and you knew you would get a P.O.S. brick. Return it!

For your own good, also get a copy of your sleep study and prescription. If you have a shred of sense left you will take that and go to a different supplier and get a good auto machine. I'm not optimistic, but either way I think it's actually best you return this machine...I did not say quit.

Therapy can be difficult to adapt to - it was for me. But it's totally worthwhile once you do it. You have an entire community of people here that are ready and willing to help you get through this, and have shared similar experiences to yours. No one is going to have your exact experience of course, but there's enough overlap that I think people here can help with whatever the obstacles are to your therapy.

Please read my advice in this "latest" thread you have started.

It's time you get serious and take charge of your therapy.  You have received alot of good advice.  Now your stuck with a brick.  Learn to use it, or return it.  Your choice.
