I know! I mean, there is plenty I am willing to sacrifice (like my dignity wearing the whole contraption every night...my honey now calls me "sexy mama" ).
I read Rested Gals post on deconstructing her Aura. I haven't worked up the guts yet for that (remember, I just finally bent the wires on the pillows portion last night...) Anyhow, I think it's rubbing behind my left ear because that is the side I sleep on (when I am not on my back). I am going to see if I can put something temporarily under that portion of the rubber headgear, and my husband is going to bring home a thin cloth-like hair cover that they use at work (that won't be until next week) - the way he described it is a papery-clothlike hair net... I don't know how much slippage that will cause, but I will keep lab ratting until I either find a solution or get a new mask. However, I think it's more likely I find a solution before I get my mask out of Cigna
I like the other idea about covering the rubber portion with flannel, but with this being my only mask at the time, am hesitant to do so. I do know I am experiencing hair breakage, but was willing to tough that out given the amount of hair I do have. I am not willing to get bald spots, though, for fear it will stay permanently bald (EEK! )
So, for now I will cover that portion of the rubber part, and will post how that affects the headgear staying in place - hopefully it will have a minimal impact.
Thanks for the ideas!
