Just wanted to say thanks to all on this board! Reading all of your stories of what has and hasn't worked have made my journey with CPAP much easier.

This was something that I knew for a while I had, but never took much notice of it. I was always tired, grumpy and my snoring was pretty much intolerable by anyone (especially my wife) within a 500 meter radius. Smile

After nearly 4 years if marriage my wife had had enough and pushed me to go and get this checked. After a health check with my GP I was referred to a sleep clinician and after a sleep study was diagnosed with OSA.

I have taken to CPAP fairly easily, with only a handful of nights since I started 2 1/2 months ago where I have either ripped my mask off in my sleep or woken and felt like I was suffocating.

The only negative experience I have had so far is when I told my Sleep clinician that I purchased a machine from the US instead of him and he got a bit touchy about it...

But on the whole its been a pretty positive experience so far and I wanted to say thanks!

Thanks
