I think I have the smallest size available; small. The really nice DME lady who came to my house, measured my mouth and nose area before putting it on me. My DME is so great, and I am surprised by it, especially after all of the stories I've heard about so many DME people.

You know, I feel the air on my eyes as well, but when I put my finger there to find the leak area, I can't find it. Drives me nuts.

You mention in another post that you get 3 cushions. Wish my DME did that. Sigh.

That is because of the callouses on your fingers from all of the typing you do every day. A little sandpaper on your fingers might help. Big Grin Dont-know Rolleyes

Might be right! Or they're asleep and wishing I would go there, too. 4am and ain't done it yet. Tonight's reason is really bad stomach acid. Almost gone so I should be able to lay down soon!

Yes...the three they send (mail) is for 3 months, so they only have to mail 4x per yr instead of 12.

And I'm pretty sure that there are more than just three sizes of human faces.

I adjusted my straps again last night, and though the mask dug in a little, it didn't leave deep marks in the morning, and it didn't leak much at all; according to Sleepyhead. I hope I can tame this mask.
