He won't stop fucking snoring! I have moved him, told him to stop (I know this doesn't work, but neither does anything else) , shaken him, woken him. I've ran out of options so now I have moved to sleep in the spare room...I haven't told him and I have left the monitor with him!

What I would like to do is stab him in the throat, AIBU?!

OP, sorry I have reported your thread and I have asked MNHQ if they can change the title. I know I can hide it and I know you don't really mean you want to kill your DH. But I am feeling really crap at the moment about losing my husband and I am sure some other recent widows who may see it would feel equally as hmm

Sorry, I am not usually quite so sensitive, I just had a really bad night last night.

Wrt to snoring, I really do sympathise and perhaps your DH should be checked out for sleep apnoea. Good luck, you must be knackered!

NoTeaForMe Nope I don't have a partner which is why I haven't tried - I will do if I ever have any male in my bed regularly though. I was tempted to get it the other day but can't justify the cost when I sleep alone 95% of the time.

I have at least got as far as finding out what type of snorer I am though, which turns out to be the annoying type that nothing works for apart from the mouth guard things.

Oh and my DD suffers the same - but she is very healthy and fit with a bmi of 22 so it's not always weight related too. Damned bastard thing to sort out it is.

Rinders Sorry for your loss

Rinders I am sorry for your loss too but it may be best to hide this thread instead of having it deleted as it is a lighthearted thread.

Buy some lazer lite earplugs from ebay.

I have trained my Dh, when he snores I kick him. If he stops then that is okay. But if he keeps snoring then I keep kicking. It took a while but now he dutifully turns over in his sleep and that solves the problem.
He doesn't ever mention the fact that I also snore, he's not that stupid ( double standards I know)

I'm really sorry for your loss Rinder , I certainly didn't write the thread title thinking it would upset anyone. It is quite clearly lighthearted and I hope MNHQ can see that.

I can't sleep with earplugs, but also wouldn't hear our toddler if she woke and we're due another baby in May do earplugs wouldn't be practical then either!

Everlong the thread was just about to slip off the first page and then basically hidden! That's presuming if Rinder hasn't already hidden it away.

Some things your partner could use to stop that annoying snoring:
- Sleep sideways
- Lose weight
- No alcohol and no tranquilizers
- Allergies influence snoring. Check if there is an allergy, and make them take a antihystaminic before going to bed.
- Use mouth guards (I've read this one before)
- Smoking causes snoring, too, as it damages the respiratory system.
- Keep your bedroom air moist, as dry air affects the airways causing snoring
- Elevating head 4 inches helps, too, as it helps to breath easier
- In times, taking some honey before sleep will help, as it softens throat.

(There were a few things I didn't ever think about before which are very handy to deal with this cursed thing)

I hope these tips provide some relief to your problem. smile

Snoring causes a deeply burning irrational anger that makes me consider whether 10 years to life in prison is a valid option if I could just get some bloody sleep.

So no,YANBU.

Just read whole thread, so sorry for your loss Rindercella. Hope you are doing okay,under the circumstances. sad
