As sort of an update to my previous post, my anxiety ebbed enough for me to use a CPAP machine for about a week now.
I’ve grown accustomed to sleeping with it, but I find that often I can’t breathe in and out of the ResMed AirFit P10 mask, which just covers my nostrils. Instead I breathe through my mouth. I’ve ordered NeilMed sinus rinse packets to clear out my nasal passages, but they aren’t arriving until tomorrow.
Is it worth it to use CPAP if I can’t breathe in and out of my nose? I’m hopefully seeing the sleep tech tomorrow about my options, including a full face mask.
