It's perfectly normal for CPAP to take some time to get used to. To get used to it, some people recommend sitting down during the day with it running while you're doing something you enjoy, like reading or watching tv. That will take away some of the strangeness factor for your brain when you wear it at night.

Tell us a little bit about why you can't use it a full night --- is the mask uncomfortable, is the pressure feeling too extreme, or a combination?

I have had a CPAP for two months now, and have YET to sleep a full night with it. I have a combination mask that has a part that covers the mouth, and two nasal pillows.

Anyone know any tricks?
