Relationship Questions

My partner died a while back.  It had been a joke with us that my machine was blowing in his face and he would laugh and kid about it when he would kiss me.  It's hard to imagine having a relationship again, but then I began to wonder: How do I deal with the CPAP and the RLS issues if I meet someone?  What do I say?  What should I expect?  It's rather a scary thought.  Has anyone else experienced this?See More
