After 36 years of marriage, I am uncertain whether I am a married gay man, or a gay single parent.

My husband just recently on CPAP & is still not used to using it. Kaiser is still working with him to find the right mask, and last night I was awakened repeatedly by the noise of his mask leaking air. The first two times I tried shifting his mask a little bit, but after the third attempt in less than half an hour, I turned on the overhead light to find that he had turned his headgear into macramé and badly done macramé at that. I have no idea how he did this, but it was no surprise the mask was leaking given its tenuous attachment to his face. I woke him, had him sit up and readjusted every last bloody strap and connection after which he was out like a light. I was up until past 3. At 7, I heard him up in the kitchen.

I'm now trying to go back to sleep. We've got friends coming for dinner and poker at 6:30.

I use the ResMed F10. My respiratory theraspist (C-PAP salesperson) gave me a Medium mask, with no fitting.

After a few months, I realized, I don't wear and Medium anything, so I bought Large headgear (straps), and Large cushions (cups) to snap into my existing frame.

I'm also a member of the C-PAP Bears Facebook group. While the RedMed F10 is very poplar, the newer F20 is supposed to be better.

Ha! I have a Medium P10 AirPillows (something like that). I am not a mouth breather so I don't have a chin-strap. Who knows what will happen as I age?

It's not so much being a mouth breather. There are times when I get sinus congestion. For that reason, I decided to go with a full face mask. I wanted the option of being able to breathe through my mouth if I needed to.
