Thanks for the encouragement. i haven't thought as far ahead as what machine I'll get just yet. I've just got to stick to it.
It took me several months to adjust. I started in March and have a bi-flex pressure of 18/14 so I know what a pain leaks can be... I stayed with it and feel so much better...
Try wearing the mask and turning the machine on several times a day for a while. Wear it while reading or watching television.
Keep trying different masks. There's a lot out there of each kind and each one, even of the same type, fits a little differently.
If you are to succeed, you must keep trying. Even medications take a while to adjust and many times you have to try a different one before you find one that works. xPAP treatment is no different.

Hi slujones, First of all, WELCOME! to the forum.! I'm sure sorry you are getting off to a rough start but hang in there; CPAP therapy can take LOTS OF PATIENCE and possibly several masks but don't give up on it, you've just begun. Best of luck and keep us posted.
