I have now had my CPAP + humidifier for two weeks. I have kept friends and family (family all live in Aus) informed about it on Facebook, as I want to encourage others to think about probs they may have with sleep/snoring etc.
One of my dearest and oldest friends who was having a bit of an insensitive moment said "So do you look like Darth Vadar at night?" (this on the very day I had my machine)
At first I was a bit stunned by the insensitivity of it as I knew I was going to look very odd (but frankly don't care if it does the job) But we had been ready for this kind of remark so I said "No hun, Del (my DH), the lovely Luke (sleep nurse) and myself have decided I am now known as "Lady Top Gun!", made me feel better and everyone else thought it was great.
