I have found a down side to CPAP specially my ASV machine.
It is habit forming.
I have found that I am spoiled by it.
I have found that if I try to sleep without it I can’t.
I have found that I have grown lazy with it and if I try to sleep without it I feel like I can’t get my breath.
I feel like I am straining to draw a good breath.
I find that I miss how almost effortless it is to intake with the machine pushing the air down my wind pipe.
I only feel this when I try to sleep at night without it.
Anyone else find this true?

Hello, my name is MAPnea and I am addicted to CPAP therapy!
I mean, why even try to sleep without my CPAP machine? Turn on the CPAP, adjust the pillows (behind my head and in my nose), start breathing, count backwards from ten ... and I'm asleep. For me, CPAP therapy is not only addictive, it's the best "sleep aid" I've ever had.
Congratulations racprops on finding such sweet success with your CPAP machine!
