Default Snoring

I just saw an ad for a local sleep center, for those who snore, have sleep apnea or other sleeping disorders.

My ex had sleep apnea. I can remember feeling so bad for him because he would literally stop breathing for 20 or more seconds at a time. It doesn't sound like a lot, but try and hold your breath for that long - it's scary. And the snoring was just terrible. It isn't anything to be ashamed of, but poor thing. He was always so tired.

I did get used to it after a while; I'm a pretty heavy sleeper anyways. But there were nights where I had to sleep in the living room and it was frustrating.

Has this ever been a problem for any of you? How did/do you deal with it?

I snore which irritates him if he can't sleep. I use those breathe rite strips and they seem to help. I use two pillows as well to keep my neck and head elevated a bit. I don't do it all the time tho, usually when my allergies act up.

My husbands snores, but not all the time and not too loudly. He always falls asleep before I do, so if the snoring is obnoxious, I just poke at him until he rearranges himself into a better position. I snore from time to time too, if I'm very tired or sleeping on my back.

My dad snores--all of the men in my family do, at least on my dad's side. Loudly. I remember once, when I was a kid, sleeping at my grandma's for a family reunion. Dad and his brothers and several male cousins and their families, including lots of boy children ... whooooa Nelly. What a terrible racket. I went on vacation with my parents when I was 21 and shared a room with them. I slept in the car. My mom frequently sleeps in another room from my dad.

I do remember having one girlfriend who snored--but that wasn't as bothersome as her sleepwalking.

I snore in the winter (dry air) or when I've had too much to drink. I woke myself up once it was so loud!

My husband has made me go sleep in a spare bedroom before. The dog snores pretty loud too.

Yeah lol it is kinda funny.

Last time I had surgery I could hear myself snoring in the recovery room and I was trying to wake up so I could stop and I finally woke up and shouted, "OMG I'm snoring so loud!" then I passed back out again according to my DH.

My ex BF snores, my ex husband snores, my mom, dad, and brother snore, my pets (including the cat) snore. Basically if I love about someone/something, they are guaranteed to snore
