So was I. When I first saw what the doctors expected me to wear at night to address my sleep apnea issue, I was shocked! I couldn't believe it! I felt like I was being robbed of every ounce of glamour I'd ever imagined myself to have. Ugly medical devices were for other people - not for me!
I find the sound of water so therapeutic and calming. I hope you love this. Besides being helpful for people with sleep issues, it may even be helpful for babies suffering from colic. I hope you love it!
I love the way CPAP wearers try to help each other. Thanks Lanky Lefty!
This poor fellow needs a Face Cozy! It would help stop his slippage, keep his nose from getting sore and help his seal. He didn't mention the strap marks in the morning, but I bet he had them. He wouldn't with a Face Cozy!
Bob Dory of Markham says, "I just love the Face Cozy and wouldn't do without it now. My face was reacting to the plastic in the CPAP straps and now I don't have that problem at all. I'm sleeping much better now that I can tolerate my mask better and so I just get up once a night now. I feel much better and have so much more energy because I'm getting my proper rest."
Hi Diane, I looooove my Sleep and Prayer Cozy!!! Absolutely fabulous. You're such a creative person with so much innovation in your heart. Honestly, I applaud you. - Pastor Doug Schneider, The Embassy Church, Oshawa ON
I've had all kinds of crazy questions about the "Prayer Cozy" I designed. Some have actually questioned whether I am praying over pieces of cloth and sending them out for donations. Oi vey. Honestly – one really has to chuckle at the misconceptions people can have. No – I'm not quite that desperate. :) While not designed specifically for her (obviously), the purpose of the Prayer Cozy can best be demonstrated as a response to the needs of one of my heroines, who lived in the 17th century...
"Diane I love the face cozies! You should go on the Dragon’s Den!" That's the latest note of satisfaction from a happy Face Cozy wearer – Laura Davis, of London, Ontario. I love getting notes like that.
When I was diagnosed with sleep apnea in 2006, it was a bit of a shock, because I'm (thankfully) otherwise a very healthy person. I'll admit it was depressing, particularly after the rough ride I'd already had that year - you know - stuff like a divorce after 38 years of marriage, having to sell my beautiful home in the country, disposing of a houseful of heirlooms, finding homes for precious pets - you know - that kind of stuff...
