I can not wear the CPAP

I was diagnosed a year ago with moderate sleep apnea....I am always tired. I was told that I was not the usual candidate to have sleep apnea...which they said would be about 50lbs heavier than I am . I tried to use CPAP for months....but I could never stay asleep and everytime I woke up I would get anxious having that monstrosity on my face. I have gone to an ENT Doctor and he told me that I have very narrow openings in my throat and a thick pallet....so could it be that the CPAP machine wouldn't help me as well as the "normal" candidate for sleep apnea....I am at a loss and never feeling rested is affecting all parts of my life.....I don't know what to do now.
