That's EXACTLY how I felt too!!!! 

P.S.  I told my sleep dr about it (the anxiety, the claustrophobia, the feeling of need to breathe through mouth for a couple big breaths or to yawn)... and he did not care one iota.  I was kinda pissed (at him) when I raised the pressure and it completely resolved the problem.  Anywhoo... just a good reminder that we are our own best advocates!

Hi Hydrangea! My great grandmother used to tell my mother not to let the cat sleep in the same bed as me. She thought cats stole your breath while you slept. I wonder how she would feel about this machine? I think I know.. LOL  Loco Loco Loco

It is really great to have a resource like this where you can take control of your treatment!

For many of us, it had to get worse before it got better. Sleeping with all that apparatus attached to the face is something that takes time to get used to. It's definitely worth the effort, though, so don't give up. I guarantee you'll be happy you stuck with it.

Not going to give up. Can't give up. It cost so much money I might need to live under a bridge, but I am not giving up. They have outlets under bridges right? Right?  Laugh-a-lot

Thanks Sleepster!
