If the moderator was responsible for keeping threads on track, she wouldn't have time to do anything else and her poor little pugs would starve to death. :lol:

I think a support team is absolutely essential.

However there is no guarantee of success even if you have excellent support. Sometimes the body doesn't cooperate.

We have a friend who in spite of having an excellent support team as well as an excellent team of medical professionals just transitioned from stage 3 to stage 4 kidney failure. While the future doesn't look bright, we will continue to be part of the support team and wonder if there was more that we could have done.

I am optimistic about the outcome of all of this and I try to make my optimism contagious.

On the positive side, the sleep machine and mask issues have all been resolved giving a high probability of having a restful sleep.

Support teams are a must for us hose heads. You can’t just deal with this on your own.

As a newbie here just would like to say this is a great content with strong sense of harmony. I do believe having a nice support team nothing is impossible to carry on or to be succeeded. Thanks for the article.

I'm approaching the end of my second month, and I can safely say it would have been impossible without a support team. Family involvement has been vital. But even more importantly, this community has provided me with expertise, advise, and help that even doctors could not, would not, or for which the fee would be enormous. If not for this community, I'd be suffering terribly with the physician prescribed mask, and worse, would have inconsistent AHIs and a whole host of unresolved sleep issues. For sure, I'd be one of the non-compliant statistics by now without my support system, instead of going on my 47th day of compliance with a 0.5AHI last night.

The support team's job is vital in empowering the pioneer to lead with focus and success. Your support Team is a network of people you trust and look to for guidance.
Cultivating and maintaining a support team will benefit you throughout each of your life’s endeavors. Support teams do more than offer a sense of community and belonging—they also help you achieve professional success.

A good support team is important because with out it you will probably fail at CPAP therapy. I have been on CPAP since 2013 and I am 41 now and I am doing much better than I did at the beginning thanks to a great support team.
