For me, it only took about a week to get used to the machine. I was lucky in finding a mask I liked from the start. I spent at least 7 years not knowing I had sleep apnea, but once on the machine, it was like night and day.
First night, I slept 6 hours straight through. I deceided then and there that I would and could stick with it. There is no other alternative that makes sense.
I've been at this for six months now. Still have my ups and downs, but it will only get better.
My AHI is usually 1.5 or under (today .4). Still have a few things to tweak, but will never give up.
I like my machine so much now, that I'm thinking of giving it a name.
Anyone else here do that? :grin:
