Yep Me too.
So that poll is now completely wrong.

Polls are always completely wrong. Enquiring minds don't want to know, they just want to be seen. Jim

I voted for the age I am now, but I initially started in my mid-40s

Unless you have more than one user log=in, you can only vote once.

I once was lost in apnea; but now I'm found--breathing easily all night long.

I was a little scared when I read the poll results.
What happened to the users past 50? ??? Do they not wake up some AM?
Then I realized maybe younger users are more internet savvy.

My wife and I are both over 70 and use a BIPAP machine. She does not use a computer, so she cannot vote on the survey. I am sure there are quite a few 70 plus year olds that do not use computers. If I hadn't have used one at work as much as I did, I probably would not use one as much as I do.

Are you asking how old I am now or how old I was when I started CPAP? I've been using CPAP for eighteen years, so that would affect the answer.

Also, you need to add a category for those under 10 years old (yes, there are some). I guess that they would need to be under parental supervision, but the category needs to be there. Presumably, the 100s category is age 100 and up. Interestingly, seven people seem to have checked that category!

It's just a poll, what would it matter? You posted, would it be too hard to write both, in your post if you think it matters. Maybe the Pollster will even read is sometime, or not. Jim
