Thanks for the reply and I guess it was dust in the exhalation port. Mine (maybe everyones?) had tiny little holes in it almost like a screen. I finally just took the mask and BLEW really hard in those little holes and the noise stopped. 2 of my 3 dogs sleep in bed w/ me so between normal dust, dog hair and dog dander, no bit surprise if a bit of microscopic fluff got in there. I'm about 6 weeks into my CPAP and though I don't LOVE my mask I do love the better sleep quality I am getting.
I didn't realize that I really avoided and almost dreaded going to sleep even though I was dead beat tired. And every single morning when I got out of bed, all I wanted to do was go back to sleep, because by the wee hours of the AM I was sleeping like a dead person out of sheer exhaustion. Now I wake up when my alarm goes off and sometimes I even TRY to go back to sleep. NOPE not happening. I think because I've actually had sufficient quality sleep. What a novel concept. That being said... off to bed!!
Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing all the while expecting different results.
Timing has a lot to do with the success of a rain dance.
