Why Julie delayed starting NIV

"No now doesn't mean no forever - keep the conversation open"
- Julie

Julie started NIV about 18 months ago. She has been using it 24 hours a day for several months. These days she is very happy with the benefits it brings. She has seen her son turn 21 years old and been on some amazing holidays, things she feels NIV has enabled her to do.

However, when Julie was first offered NIV she was very clear she didn’t want to try it and refused for several months. But as her symptoms became more noticeable she decided to try NIV.

Julie’s decision-making process took several months. She is keen to share her own experience. Julie feels that being flexible in your choices can help you as your symptoms change over time.
