    But I Think We Found a "Cure"

    When we were first together, my husband (boyfriend at the time) would only snore for less than a minute after falling asleep...then he would somehow stop...and then I would be able to fall asleep.  I am a light sleeper.  Yet, over the years (and with the with the bit of...

    Drives Me Insane!!!!!!

    He snores so loud, guys.  He's about 150 pounds heavier than I am, and he's just like a boulder in the bed, and his snoring is so loud that even though I wear airline approved earplugs, he still manages to get through them.  As a result, my sleep is disrupted, and I...

    A Good's Night's Sleep Is Essential to Well Beingt

    And we've been talking about him visiting a

    doctor and getting some cure, but so far we've had other things to take care of and snoring is not a top priority at the moment. So I found a temporary solution that more or less works for me. I use earplugs. My hubby often gets to go to construction sites for work and gets...

    Sick And Tired

    Try to Outdo This Snore Story!

    My husband's snoring was like a buzz saw.  It started out moderate sounding,  and I could get  him to turn on his side if I elbowed him.  He's a deep sleeper, so sometimes he would complain that his kidneys ached if i elbowed him to hard.  As time...
