My New CPAP "Buddy"
I remember the day I drove home with my new CPAP machine on the passenger seat of my car. I was quite distraught with the burden of my new dependency on this "machine".
I was anxious to solve the problem of my loud snoring which drove my husband to sleep in another room.
I was worried that wearing a "hose on my nose" would not be very sexy. I was concerned that I would have difficulty adjusting to sleeping with this machine.
I was so busy thinking of all the negatives, that when I got home, I inadvertently forgot it in the car. I remembered later on that night only when it was time to set it up.
So I went to the garage to retrieve it and tried to feel positive about the situation, and decided to call it "My Buddy".
After several months of adapting, I am very comfortable with my "Buddy". My husband is sleeping with me again.
The "hose on my nose" is now my lifesaver.
I hope it helps. Don't be afraid to comment back.
