    How do you handle your spouse' snoring?

    I write this as I head to the couch yet again. The better half claims that she doesn't snore. Says she just breaths loud.....................she snores. I've done all the usual tricks, but nothing helps. How do you deal with your spouse' snoring?

    I knee him.  Pinch him.  Plug his nose.  Cover his mouth.  I'm not very nice about it when he snores.  Lucky for me, he does not snore often.  Maybe you should ask your wife to get a physical and make sure nothing else is causing it?  Or has it always been this way?

      This is what my wife does to me when I fall asleep first. We both snore, but I am the kinder gentler soul. We've both always snored. I'm worse when I'm extremely tired.

    Often its hard for females to accept that they do snore. What I did with my snoring husband was, once when he was snoring I took his a proof that he since then he knows that he does snores. I wake him up while he is snoring and then tell him to sleep on his side, Sleeping on your side somewhat reduces the snoring.

    Ear plugs are handy sometime, but you might not hear the alarm clock in the morning.

      I used a set of headphones and a thunderstorm cd for a while, but I ended up with ear infections. I'm thinking this may be the reason my grandparents had separate bedrooms. smile

    There is a giant fan in our bedroom to cover the snoring, cats running around, etc. It's the only way we can ever get any sleep.

      I would go for the big fan. White noise may help. We had a ceiling fan in our last home that had a rhythmic thump. It helped me fall asleep, but drove the wife nuts. She'd go sleep on the couch when it was hot. I wonder if they'd sell me that fan?

      It's best to get a plug-into-the-wall fan that you can move from room to room, change directions, etc. It helps soothe you to sleep and the cold helps keep you asleep.

    Actually, severe snoring can be the sign of a very serious sleep apnea condition that may require the help of a CPAP machine or other medical strategies. If your wife is stopping breathing during these episodes, she needs to have a sleep study done as the condition can become life threatening. I've had a friend and a family member who both suffered from it to this point. Both of them now use CPAP therapy. I know it's annoying, but she should address it with her doctor.
