I snore. I am loathe to admit it but I do. It is a fairly recent phenomena and it seems to be only during allergy season. Unfortunately for my husband, that lasts pretty much all winter for me.
I have lived with a snorer before. I wanted to smother him with his pillow because I was so tired all the time. (just kidding!) He refused to believe that he snored. Of course his disbelief in any kind of personal flaws should have been a clue about him in general, but I digress. My point is that I was on the other side of this bed. I was the one ready to scream every single night, who slept with music on (pre ipod even!) and who tried to fall asleep before he did in hopes that I would stay asleep. I feel pretty terrible that I am putting my husband through this. But I am sure he feels worse.
I am hoping that losing weight will help the issue, but that (losing weight) has not happened yet. I try to sleep on my side, but Vinnie says that when he looks over I am on my back or on my side and not at all on the pillow. I am thinking of trying one of those anti-snore pillows because I think as long as I can force myself to sleep on my side, and follow some other basic snore remedies I should be okay. But I have to stay on the pillow. And apparently there is a learning curve in using it. I am a little concerned about a pillow that I have to learn how to use. I will give it a shot. It got decent amazon reviews.
Maybe I just need to get enough sleep for the snoring to stop...
Do you snore? Does your partner? How do you both survive???
