I have two items:
1. to me DME is simply DUMBY

2. when I'm angry with the machine, hubby tells me to call it Continuous Respiratory Airway Pressure.

Love the post! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: (5 out of 5)

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

This is my first time to this forum as well as newly diagnosed with central sleep apnea. It is scary but
with my always supportive hubby I know I'll adjust in time. I thoroughly enjoyed your CPAP Glossary and
do believe laughter is the best medicine. I could just picture my head flying around the room :lol:

Thanks for the pick-me-up. :D

Thank you for taking time to create and share this. Every little bit of info that defuses anxiety over starting to use the equipment... especially clean/ golden. I'm new here as of yesterday and already lighter of spirit and more open to the experience. <3
