I have been trying to adjust to the CPAP for 2 weeks now. I’ve worn it for hours. I still can’t exhale through it and I feel like I’m suffocating so obviously I can’t sleep.
It makes me feel like I’m going to die. I know it sounds dramatic but I don’t see the point if I’m just going to be tired the rest of my life and probably die young because sleep is so essential.
Does anyone have any advice? Is it easier to breathe in a full face mask than just a nosepiece? I honestly don’t know what to do and my sleep doctor essentially just told me to ‘figure it out’.
I’m incredibly demoralized. Please help :/
