Okay - here's a weight related issue that I'm sure many of us must struggle with. SNORING! I never really had a snoring problem until I gained weight. Late hubby was a sound sleeper and never complained. Present hubby is a light sleeper and often has to move to the couch because my nasal serenading keeps him awake.
I also suffer sleep apnea but it isn't bad enough that I require a C-Pap mask while sleeping. The Dr. at the sleep clinic advised a tennis ball sewn into the back of a night shirt so I don't sleep on my back. (Which I never did because it seemed too odd...) He also said that losing weight would alleviate the apnea and I'm assuming the snoring also. When my brother lost a lot of weight my sister-in-law said the snoring subsided greatly.
So I'm working on the weight. But in the meantime - does anyone have any tried & true remedies?? I want hubby back in bed with me! I feel awful that I keep him awake all night. I've heard of couples who sleep in separate bedrooms because of this and I don't want it to come to that! Hubby has the hearing acuity of a watch dog and can hear a pin drop in the next room. Which doesn't help much here. I suggested he get some ear plugs but he balked at the idea. I sleep like a log and he says someone has to be able to hear the bumps in the night. He's the protector of the castle type...)
So - if anyone has temporary remedy that works for them - please let me know! I spent enough nights in that bed alone when I was a widow....
