I was recently diagnosed with mild sleep apnea. My electrophysiologist (heart rhythm doctor) wanted to test me to see if that’s why I sometimes wake up in afib (irregular heartbeat). I received a CPAP machine and have been using it for the past two weeks. Tonight my wife, who is 8 years younger than me (55) says she cant stand looking at me wearing the mask and that I look too old and I’m disgusting. I hate wearing the thing too but am givng it a try. Now I feel disgusting and old everytime I go to bed. She is trying to talk me out of continuing to wear it. I haven’t really noticed any difference in the daytime. Has anyone just decided against using one?
