    Okay, so it's 1:12 am right now.....
    So my bf sometimes snores, but tonight I'm on the verge of SMOTHERING HIM WITH A PILLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm wearing heavy-duty ear plugs (the kind he wears at work <copper smelter - we're talking serious earpugs here!!>) & I can still hear him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Heeeeeelllpppp meeeee.. soooo tiredddd!
    Not only is he dayshift tomorrow (meaning he gets up for work @ 4am!) but he's really sick AND it was his birthday yesterday/today (Wed) so I can't really beat him with the clock on my sidetable.. even though I'm really tempted!!!!!!!
    AGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At least I don't work in the morning.
    Just had to get that all out! Thanks! lol

      LOL! sorry, its not funny.

      I have this problem with my DOG! isn't that weird? he snores so freaking loud, i tell him to go sleep in the other room and he just stares at me.

      I'm sorry, i feel your pain, but that was a good laugh

        that sucks!!!!

        my DH snores sometimes. usually i just keep hitting him until he wakes up. if i can get him to change positions, he usually stops snoring.

          Ohhhhh I can so relate!!! We've battled this for a couple years....makes me thankful at times that I work nights during the week....then on weekends I just try and fall asleep really fast! (which of course never works!!!)

          I tell ya...Our lifesaver...he knew it was getting bad, heck, he even kept the dog awake some night!!! But we finally called the sleep center. He went in for 2 different testings and now sleeps with an oxygen mask....and....better yet....I now sleep too!!! He wakes up refreshed (snoring can do serious damage on your system after a while...wasn't gettin enough oxygen in!)

          Just something to think about if it's a chronic problem....AND....most insurance companies seem to cover a majority of the equipment!

            Wow an oxygen mask? I wonder if my FI needs one! I literally have to sleep in the other room sometimes. Sometimes I just want to send him to his house! Im on vacation from his snoring for 2 weeks now that he is on a business trip! :)

              Oh I get that everytime he is home and if he's really tired its worse lol

              He came home for a week recently and he was in our bed only 2 nights lmao i shook him so hard he thought it was an earthquake lol

              Both of my dogs snore really loud but for some reason that doesn't bother me its just when FI makes noises like a freight train and breathes on me yuk!!! lmao

              So i feel your pain and the only remedy is to kick him into another room lol

                My FI is an olympic class snorer.

                And the most bizarre thing of all is that I sleep right thru it. And I am such a light sleeper! I actually tell people that I knew I was supposed to be with him because I can sleep thru his snoring!

                  pregnancy has made me a snorer but my DH has been terrible lately, he has started sleeping on his back (which is a very new thing) and when my mom was in town even she could hear him in another room. Plus both our dogs snore, some nights I cannot sleep at all...I feel your pain.

                    It's called sleep apnea.

                    It's not just regular snoring, it's SUPER loud and the person actually stops breathing, sometimes you can hear them fighting for air. It can be scary if you don't know what it is (and even if you do).

                    The oxygen mask is called a CPAP machine. Basically, it forces you to breathe. Depending on how bad you are, the tech sets it to different pressures.

                    The sound the CPAP makes is white noise, a little hum that isn't horrible to listen to

                    My father has had one since I was 5...in the 80's when they first came out. They really did look like a ventillator or smething and it was loud! Now more than 20 years later, they are SIGNIFANTLY smaller and come with humidifiers (something to do with makeing it easier to breathe).

                    FI had to get one. While he had a hard time dealing with having to wear it every night, I didn't think it was that bad (I'd had experience with it). Now, if he doesn't use it, he's good for nothing the next day. And he doesn't fall asleep driving anymore!
