Thanks everyone. I got the Swift FX nasal pillows, but they didn't have the pretty pink straps - just the gray. Maybe if they work, next time I can get the pink ones! My daughter will like those! She only sees me when she's home from college and is still not used to seeing me masked up. Now my 16-year-old son will call me some kind of elephant name. I'll wait and see tonight! He was calling me "Darth Vader" with my other mask! My husband calls me that too. It's okay, because my 25-year-old son calls me "zombie" because of how I look when I am sleep deprived, which has been much too long! I'll take the sleep-mask names over the sleep-deprived names. We do joke around a lot in my house, and it helps us get through tough times. Finally getting diagnosed is a blessing.
The guy from the DME showed my how to pull my hair over the strap in the back. I'm glad to hear this helps to keep it in place because at the sleep lab the nasal pillows ended up in my ear by the morning! I think they weren't fitted correctly - it was just for my titration. The DME guy also told me not to put any type of gel into my nostrils, but I think he has to say that.
Wish me luck!
