I read your post and I definitely can hear your frustration.
So, let's just take a breath together....ok?
Now, there are many, many things that you can do so that your therapy becomes tolerable and eventually very comfortable. I remember the first time that I got woken up (scared me to death in the middle of the night) with a rumbly hose!
I ordered a fleece hoze cover from http://www.padacheek.com
(about $30.00 for a 6' cover) and they come in lots of lovely prints and colors. Solved that problem. Some people also swear by the Aussie heated hose, but it is quite a bit more expensive (approximately $150) and it can be obtained from http://www.sleepzone.com.au/showitems.a ... AP%20Tube'
Perhaps you can take just a moment and click on the User Control Panel at the upper left on this page and fill in your profile and especially your equipment, so that we know how to help you more?
I don't know what kind of mask you are using, but when I was using a nasal mask, I felt as though I needed some room for the mask and my pillow was sort of fighting the mask and causing leaks. So, I purchased a Regenesis buckwheat hull cpap pillow from http://www.pur-sleep.com
. It kind of works along a similar concept as the bean bag chair when we were kids. You can run your hand over it and make a generous spot for your mask, while the rest of the pillow is supportive for your neck. This company also makes something called a "hose boss" that will allow you to mount your hose in such a way that it Is above you and you don't have to keep flipping it around you as you sleep.
I started out with a Comfort Gel Nasal Mask, because that is what I was given at my titration study. My DME then brought me a Swift LT for Her and I had some trouble getting used to the nasal pillows, so I reached out to some of the fine folks on the forum here for help. I had also heard good things about the Mirage Softgel Nasal Mask and tried that one. Then, when the Swift FX came out, I tried it, and found that it was the perfect mask for me. What I'm trying to say is, sometimes it helps to try different things until you find what is most comfortable for you.
Now, I am not suggesting that you have to buy all of these products, but I wanted to let you know that there are products out there that many of us have used to make our therapy more comfortable. Please don't give up - the benefits of good therapy are great and your health is most imporant!
