    Sick And Tired

    He sleeps like a baby while I suffer like a miserable. He makes worst noise I can possibly imagine because it's intermitent and unpleasant. I have stopped sleeping next to him right when he goes to bed, because that's when he gets worse. I wait until he's slept for a few hours so...

    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...

    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...

    I sleep better in the guest room.

    Wish I could call it my room because that's what it is. My backup sleeping area. I think separate bedrooms is healthy and not strange! Wish everyone else though the he same and that it did not embarrass him...

    A Room of My Own

    I now have my own room.  It's not exactly the way I pictured married life, but at least can both sleep.  He's so loud that even ear plugs don't help and when we do have to spend the night together in a hotel room, he doesn't sleep because he's worried about keeping me...

    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...

    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

     Sorry the surgery didn't solve your husband's (and your) sleep problems.  Like many middle aged, overweight men, I snored quite loudly - my boys could hear me snoring two floors away!  A night in a sleep clinic diagnosed apnea and I got immediate relief with a...

    Incorporated Into My Dream

    We recently got married and it's been the most difficult struggle for both of us. One day I get up to sleep on the couch, another day he decides to sleep on the couch. It has really started to take a toll on our relationship in so many ways. The snoring is so loud, I can hear it...
