So, I’m sitting here in bed at 5am, no sleep, haven’t slept in bed for 3 nights, haven’t slept more than 5 hours in 3 nights, the walls in my house are retracting in and out…my Fiance wakes the neighbors with his snoring! ARRRGH!
My Fiance snores. Loudly. He travels for his job and works 3rd shift, he obviously has a screwy sleep pattern anyways. When he’s home, he stays up late 3-4am, sleeps a few hours, takes random naps throughout the day, etc. I am sitting here listening to what seriously could be mistaken for a grizzly in hibernation.
Our bedroom is downstairs. After I have been awoken the last 3 nights by his loudness, I have retreated to the couch. Tonight, all 3 kids are sleeping on my retreat (we have the bomb diggity huge couch. It’s heaven, really).
I attempted to go upstairs and overtake one of the munchkins quarters (toddler bed, anyone?) and Fiance wakes up as soon as I move and begs me to stay in bed. It doesn’t matter anyways, as I tiptoe upstairs, I can hear him just as good as laying beside him (in our 3400 sf) house! Back to bed I go…
I know he more than likely has sleep apnea. I just had to stop my rant to shake him awake after a minute of not breathing. We have discussed this before and he refuses to go to the doctor about it.
Does anyone else live with a snorer? How do you handle it? I’ve tried everything (fans, tv, etc). He has tried breathe rights, decongestants, etc. I NEED SLEEP! I know its not entirely his fault, even though he could be doing things to minimize it a little bit. And since I only see him on weekends, I want to feel him beside me at night. This lack of sleep makes me like super bitch on steroids, for real. I had to stop myself from torrential tears this morning when my son woke me up wanting a pop tart (my Fi was cooking breakfast and my son is as impatient as I am).
