I understand that, but I think it's both.
Persistence is required, I don't advocate that we just
wait for things to get better. We need to get involved in our own care and take action when necessary.
On the other hand, I know that just waiting can also help. A lot. Many of us need to allow ourselves to adapt to CPAP therapy.
I want to encourage people by letting them know that as their body and mind adapts to CPAP therapy many of the things about it that bother them will stop bothering them.
Not getting a good night's sleep can be a result of the fact that you've had a hose attached to your face. After awhile that will no longer bother you and then you can get a good night's sleep. Some people are lucky in that they adapt in a few minutes, for others it takes us weeks.
