Who Says

     Is there anything worse than trying to sleep with a snoring partner? I don’t mean someone who snores slightly or gently. I mean a partner that snores like there is a train in your bedroom. On a nightly basis, the awful constant noise eliminating from him. No matter how many times I tell him to roll over, stop snoring. I wake him up, move him, poke
him, nothing works. He has steroid nasal spray that he uses that is supposed to alleviate the noise.
     Sometimes it helps, but not usually. I have tried ear plugs, a white noise machine that has lots of different sounds. He had the unmitigated gall to tell me it kept him awake. He almost lost a crucial body part for that comment.
Some nights when I can’t stand the “train”  anymore I take my blanket n pillows and head to the couch. At least it is quiet out there.
     We have tried Breathe Right Strips, lavender spray, benadryl before bed, chamomile tea and any other wives tale we can find.
     The next step is a sleep study, because yes he does stop breathing when he snores and sleeps. And that not breathing isn’t because I have smothered him with a pillow, although it would stop the noise,.and I won’t lie and tell you I haven’t thought of that solution. Lol. But a sleep study will be much more efficient!!!!
