    Rosemary6NT hope you had a good night with it. I would certainly prefer not to have need of one, but have got used to it and find it helpful. x

    Thanks all. I think it will take some getting used to. The mask covers nose and mouth which is good for me as I mouth breathe a lot.

    Rosemary6NT Yes, I know you want to start using it asap but don't put pressure on yourself to use it all night from the get go.

    Perhaps try it this evening watching TV for an hour or so to get used to how it feels, then try it in bed.

    What type of mask did you get - nose only, one that covers your mouth and nostrils or one that covers your mouth and nose?

    Hope it improves your sleep. xx

    Took me a few nights to get use to it....I took advice from other forum members (@Ellie) and rather than just use when going to sleep I went to bed earlier and watched tv with the mask on for couple of hours.

    Hope all goes well....you can take your time to get use to it 😘🤗
