Many years ago I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. As a result I now wear this ridiculous mask to bed so that air is pumped into my lungs while I sleep so I don’t inadvertently stop breathing for too long. The problem with the whole CPAP machine, in addition to being a real pain is that I can’t seem to get comfortable with one of those nice pillows that always “bounce back”.
These types of pillows are always some kind of synthetic material which in and of itself isn’t that bad. It’s the fact that they have no “give” to match the contours of the mask.
I found a down pillow once that worked pretty well. The unfortunate thing with down is that it is
a) expensive and
b) goes really, really flat after awhile.
But down, seems to be the way to go. I recently bought one of those “synthetic down” pillows that is supposed to act like down but really doesn’t I’ve been tossing and turning since I got it to replace my other pillow which had gone really flat and kinda gross with use.
So, off to the pillow store, again. This time in search of a real down pillow.
