      I have had sleep apnea since 2004 I also experienced the difficulty learning how to use it change of mass helped me and wearing it during the day was helpful till I got used to wearing it at night

      I had a very hard time getting used to my mask. Physically and mentally. I stuck with it and I'm ten years into using one and at 42 I'm far less exhausted then I was at 32. I found it so worth it to keep trying new masks and putting it on as much as I could tolerate. I'm sorry you have to wait so long to try a new mask. That sucks.
