Hi,

I'm quite new here myself. I've found it difficult to figure out where I'm supposed to put comments and ask questions but no one's "yelled at me" so I guess I'm doing well.

Reading the discussions is most interesting and through asking questions, today I found out some information that I hope will make me more comfortable as I walk through the world of Sleep Apnea!

Welcome!
