Given you've tried nasal pillows, which have the least facial coverage, and still aren't comfortable wearing any, I wonder about taking a small dose of an anti-anxiety med before bed for a few nights? It's "mind over matter", which I know is easy for me to say Ask your nurse.

I wear a Total Face Mask at night, which is very comfy but I'm not claustrophobic.

Thanks for advice and my district nurse is sorting out something to help me relax a bit more and hopefully use the nippy machine to improve my breathing.
The longest I have worn my mask is 1 hour and 20 minutes but that was a while back.My main concern is that my arms and hands are now weakened and I won't in time be able to remove the mask when I want to.
