New CPAP Mask...

... and I think this one will be the best yet!
 I had already tried three different styles of this kind of mask. Finally, got a size small enough that it didn't poke me in the eyes...but, the "cross bar" on my forehead just drove me nuts. I figured that there just wasn't any help for that...since all three of these masks had some version of that part in them.
Then, today...I went to Lowe's to get a new light fixture for my office...and had my daughter stop over at the Health and Wellness Supply company that delivers my CPAP machine and supplies. 
Thankfully...the lady did have another option. 
 Looking at them together...old and new...it certainly is smaller. But, will I be able to get comfortable with those "things" in my nose...as opposed to just over my nose? I doubted if I would...honestly; and it felt weird to put on. But, when I got home...it was a good time to have a nap since my head had been hurting for two days with sinus crap...every time it rains! So, I grabbed my mask and headed for bed. Took about five minutes to get to sleep...then I woke up...3 hours later! Woo Hoo! I have not had a decent snooze since I started this adventure...so am thinking this might be a great new mask for me! Tonight will tell for sure!
Edited to Add: I slept great last night! Had to tweek my straps a little before settling in...they did not wake one time until 0730 this morning! Yeah! Keeping my fingers crossed that this lasts! I feel great today!
