Anyone else have a spouse who snores all the time LOL!!?
What do you do? I absolutely love him but this is awful. lol
Any thing that would help???? It's so loud I have to use ear plugs...

Do your husbands/wives move to the next room if they awaken you from the snoring???

At times my hub will usually go in another room to sleep!!!

What to do.

My dad snores very loudly.
When we used to live in a two story home, we could be downstairs with the tv on and he could be upstairs in the bedroom sleep [with the door closed]...and it was just as if you were in the room with him.

My step mom has managed to just deal with his snoring over the years but a lot of times she ends up going to sleep before him.
We've been telling my dad for years to get some kind of surgery done or something but he refuses.
All of my aunts, uncles, and a few of my cousins know how bad my dad snores.

I would suggest sleeping in separate rooms for now and maybe you can look into some sort of medical remedy.
I hope for the best, I know how annoying that can be.
I had the misfortune of waking up one night and my dad and I were sleeping in my aunt's living room, I couldn't go back to sleep because of my dad's snoring and I couldn't wake him up so I could at least attempt to go back to sleep. I was quite crabby and emotional the next day from the lack of sleep.

I have a friend whose man snored bad - apparently suffered from sleep apnea, and they noticed that when he used his mask to sleep, he snored less. Seems a lot more humane than sewing tennis balls into the back of his pj's (another solution I have read). A friend of mine has a custom-fitted mouth thingy that she clamps onto in her mouth that stops snoring.

Have your hubby talk to his doctor - you don't have to suffer such torture!

Thank you!! I will look into sleep apnea/docs so he can look into it.....and a remedy!

On a serious note, when I snore the wife punches me in the rib cage. She says that quiets me down inmediately.

Learn to totally wear the other one out, allow them to fall asleep first, then they sleep soundly the rest of the night. This is what I do.

This is very important and potentially serious. DontH8Me is on to something here, I'd set up a sleep study as soon as possible. Sleep apnea (also called the fat-man's snoring disease) is so misnamed. There have been professional atheletes diagonosed with it.

What sleep apnea is is when someone stops breathing while they sleep. Although excess weight can exacerbate the situation, the muscles of the neck/throat relax too much and actually cut off the air way. When it's slight obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the result is snoring. In the moderate OSA and even severe, snoring can become more pronounced.

The "mask" discussed in the quoted area above is normally for a system called a "C-PAP". That is a machine that simply forces air down the windpipe. I work with an individual who has it, and he said that he not only sleeps better, but actually remembers that he started dreaming again too. And, if the air flow is properly adjusted, there is no snoring at all, and he says that the machine is so quiet, it's barely noticeable (he jokes that it's a LOT less noisy than his snoring).

Since OSA is the obstruction or complete stopping of breathing (for periods at a time, of course), it's a very dangerous and possibly fatal condition. Y'all really should do some online research, talk to a doctor, and seriously contemplate a sleep study.
