I've had a quick chat with Marion today - she's been rather poorly lately and has been in hospital twice. Anyway, she saw the comment you'd left her, but in her tired state couldn't work out how to leave you one back, so can you add her as a friend and copy/paste it in there so she can reply easily?
Good to hear you got the machine you needed Amelia, and we do have several people on the Nippy's - in fact one of our members, Marion from As I Live I + Breathe, has used one for years + is the author of the book we sell 'CPAP + Ventilator Secrets.'
Hi Amelia, Welcome to Hope2Sleep. I am relatively new on here and I've already had lots of help from Kath and useful discussions with her and other members too. I'm not using the same equipment as you, however, I suppose we may still encounter similar problems (although I hope you have none)! See you around. June

"Thanks Kath, he has been on cpap for a few years now and has regular check ups but is still extremely tired when he relaxes, he is also self employed which is another stumbling point. They are a pain these jury service, will need to look into it.…"
"Hi Susan and welcome :)
Regarding your question about jury service, I don't know much about the exemptions as I've never been called up and hope I aren't! However, if your husband is on good CPAP therapy and approved by the DVLA to…"
"Sorry you've had no response to this post Mauro as I was hoping someone may have an answer, as corneal ulcer's isn't something I've heard of caused by CPAP. However, we do often warn of why it's important to ensure the…"
"Hi Julia. I struggle with neck pain too and I use the alternative softcap headgear.Due to the fact the straps stick anywhere on the cap it means I can angle the lower straps upwards instead of across the back of my neck, as I have to have my…"
