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

"Hi Kath, not used to the way the posting works on this forum . It feels as if I am collecting to much text. Should I start new topic? Have rung the clinic in Oxford and they said D has to be referred through the GP. I have found his Diagnosis from…"
"He really needs the attitude that if he is given a machine or a trial "This is going to work for came hell or high water!" though it is not easy getting started or used to a CPAP machine. Sometimes you just need to keep…"
"This came to a head a couple of weeks back where, even while just sat in front of my computer at home, I felt like I wasn't breathing properly, even with none of this going on - I was having to manually breathe. I got tested for covid that day…"
"With the last point in mind, because I never feel like I'm breathing "normally" with the mask on, I then end up taking over and "manually" trying to concentrate on my breathing with it on. This, of course, means that…"
"Note that this feeling of not breathing properly also happens even if I put the mask on for a bit during the day, just to try to get used to it. I simply do not ever feel like I'm taking in enough air when I breathe in, and therefore have to…"
