It's been a week for me since starting on a loaner CPAP machine and mask. I am currently using the DreamWear which is great, but... I get a little bit stressed out about worrying I can't get enough air through my nose. If I'm not paying attention to my breathing it's fine. It's just when I'm consciously aware of each breath and I feel like I have to gulp in air through my mouth.
Anyway, pretty sure this is more of a psychological problem than a mask issue, but I was wondering if anyone else has felt the same and if they got over it eventually, or if maybe trying a different mask was a good solution. I have an appointment Monday with the guys providing the equipment for my trial, so I'm trying to decide if I should ask to try another mask, just so I can be sure about which one I am going to purchase.
Would love to hear everyone's opinions on different masks though. Related or not to the conscious breathing issue. :-)
