Is your partner's snoring driving you to distraction? Do you lie in bed with the pillow over your head wondering how one human being can make such horrible noises? Are you at end of your rope, exhausted and irritable? Are you wondering what in the world you have to do to get a quiet night's sleep? If you've answered yes to all those questions, let me be the first to welcome you as a honorary member of "The Non-Sleepers Club".
Before I continue, here's the very first thing you need to do. Determine whether this is the ordinary garden variety type of snoring, or could it possibly be sleep apnea. How do you do that? It's easy to spot. People who suffer from sleep apnea snore snore very loudly, then stop breathing for 3 or 4 seconds. It gets real quiet until they draw their next breath. Someone with sleep apnea usually wakes up feeling groggy and remains tired during the day. If you think there is a problem, go see your doctor. There are remedies for this disorder, but it needs to be diagnosed before it leads to future health problems. To learn more click here.
Having said that, snoring is a bear, and you need your rest. Ever consider separate bedrooms? It could be the ideal solution. More and more couples are doing it. In fact, some of the newer homes are being built with two master suites. This arrangement is for sleeping only and it shouldn't interfere with your sex life. In fact, if you're not so tired, it could even make it even better. Share the same bed for all the fun stuff, but when it's time to call it a night one of you retires to their own room. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it? I love win/win scenarios.
