Hi Smitty, I have been using cpap for almost 9 months and what a difference in my health. I am feeling better everyday. The comments from the group were good , so take it seriously. Please don't give up. I have much in common with you, the depression and all, and sleep will make a great difference in your life.Do you have a hose cover and strap pads yet? Anything to make you more comfy is worth trying.Good Luck, Susan
I am glad you joined and hope you find it as useful as I have. The forum contains topics dealing with sleep apnea and various treatment options and methods of treating both obstructive and central sleep apnea.
The forum is made up of patients, like me, and professionals that are trying to help find solutions to the problems faced by those that are affected by sleep apnea.
Some patients experience problems that are not addressed by their DME. Their experience with their DME, may have been little more than handing over their machine and mask and sending the patient on their way. The forum is here to help both the newbie, just starting out with therapy, and those more experienced and knowledgeable to find solutions and answers.
The professionals that participate in the forum are invaluable with their expertise and advice on different treatment options and explanations of what is happening.
I hope that you find the forum useful and will participate in the discussions and groups
