Two years and just about got it figured out. Nap today was like heaven. Want to try one more adjustment.
CPAP is a journey like “The Wizard of Oz”. It’s a long slow journey. You will face many problems and pick up many friends along the way. Just because you reach the poppies, it doesn’t mean you are in Kansas.

RE: How many years have you used an Xpap machine?
I just finished my first year.

However the poll results may be skewed as I figure most veterans may not be on the site as often as us relative newbies. So the percentage would remain high for newer users although I would be really keen to know if there are many 'experienced' users.

I left the poll open for 45 days, so hopefully we will get a cast of long time users too!
