I Can't Sleep When Someone Is Snoring

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 291 People

    I am very difficult to live with.

    I am sensitive to noise and light and I love my sleep. I also insist on having my place laid out to suit my needs. If you snore or want the curtains open, you will have to live elsewhere. This doesn't mean I don't love you. I just hate not being able to get a decent sleep...

    No, No..

    I have to go to sleep first or I have to be dead tired. If I'm not, I can't sleep. Not one bit. My ex used to snore something awful and was an a*s about it too. He knew as I explain this to him countless times that I couldn't handle him snoring. Oh, Houdini! It was horrid, and he...

    Forget Sleep - We Were Headed For Divorce - His Snoring Was So Bad I Couldn't Stand It Any More.

    For me, living with a snorer was pure hell. For years my husband's snoring drove me insane. From the minute his head hit the pillow until the moment our alarm started buzzing, he snored as loud as a freight train. Of course, during the first few years I coped with it and...

    Handwritten Signs

    It's something which keeps me awake and makes me very irritable. I have recorded someone's snoring and played it back to them but then i've also written on their forehead "Stop Snoring" which didn't work either. I must be attracted to sound sleepers. I don't know if i snore. I've...

    I Can'T Sleep With Any Loud Noises.

    One time I had to sleep in a cabin with someone who snored like a lawnmower and so loud, they could wake the dead. It was h*ll. Not even earplugs blocked out all the sound! I got no sleep that week.

    "annoying"

    It really depends on how loud a person snores. If he/she snores quietly than it doesnt wake me, however, if the person snores as loud as an alarm clock I'm the first out the bedroom. I never thought I would see the day where I would be constantly disturbed by someone snoring...

    I have a hard time falling asleep.

    I need utter silence unless I am exhausted. In which case I could fall asleep in train tracks and not awake.

    The Loudest Woman I Ever Heard In My Entire Life!

    I slept with her from 1997 to 2002. She was a tad chubby, but not large, nor did she have sleep apnea--nothing that even hinted at snoring. I worked various early shifts, sometimes having to set my alarm to wake up as early as 2:30am--plus, my job usually involved all-day driving...

    How I Got My Sleep Back!

    My husband snores loud enough to wake the dead in the cemetery a few blocks away. I'm not exaggerating. Once, a neighbor actually called 911 because she was afraid that a saw was running in our garage. He's got a drawer full of mouthpieces. One was dentist...

    Snoring.

    The other half snores for England! There's been nights when I've found myself sleeping on the sofa just for peace and quite. Things get to extremes when he's had one too many, then the whole street can hear him.
