to think that if you snore like an angry pig all night every night that you shouldn't inflict it on anybody by visiting people ever ever ever ever?

DSIL is making me feel homicidal.

Has been visiting since Thursday has snored every night all night for 4 nights.

I had to sleep on my own sofa last night with a film on to drown out the noise and it's now 6.30am and I've been awake for an hour already listening to it. I've had about 4 hours sleep.

It's ALL night. Apart from when she goes to the loo, and that wakes me because I wake because the noise stops! But never fear, within 30 seconds of returning to the spare room.

Oh but it's all so fucking hilarious to snore isn't it? Oh how she will laugh and fake embarrassment.

We have one more night to go, I swear, never ever again is this woman sleeping in my house.


Alternatively, am I being unreasonable...
how are the other 4 people in this house sleeping throught this fucking racket?
is it only irritating me because i'm pregnant?,
or because I came off my anti-depressants that usually make me much more tolerant of others being selfish dicks.

Enjoy a peaceful nights sleep tonight. Don't stress it all....they must have been due to go surely.

i'm only mucking about with the death wishing.

i didn't invite her, in fact i wasn't consulted now that i think about it.

nevergoogle Tue 27-Aug-13 00:13:23

and i didn't know about the snoring.

YANBU. How can she be unaware of it and the disruption it causes to other people's sleep?

Can I particularly say I wish snorers wouldn't inflict themselves in youth snorting pig was so bad in one once, I pulled the mattress off the bed and slept in the toilet block. I could still hear her from there, with earplugs in. There were 4 other people in that room kept awake too and how there was not a murder I do not know.

I absolutely LOVE the "snoring like an angry pig" description. Utter genius grin

Deffo sounds like sleep apnoea and too many people dont realise that they have it or are not aware of how bad their snoring is.

I never used to snore but post pregnancy rapidly developed "angry pig" tendancies. Thankfully I had readabout sleep apnoea and saw my GP who rereferred me to a sleep clinic. I was having apnoeas several times a night and my oxygen levels were dropping.

I now sleep witha mask and CPAP machine....I am told that I do still snore but it is very quiet now.

I wonder if your SIL realises how bad it is. Partners can become oblivious. Mum is a dreadful snorer but my Dad simply sleeps through it. I on the other hand nearly killed hrr when we were on holiday and sharing a room once.

Why isn't your husband angry with his sister for being so bloody rude?! Why did he invite then without consulting you? Good for you for standing up and saying something.

apocalypse nope, it was years before I'd ever heard of this place. Nice work though!

If your MIL is a nice person, have her to stay and she can talk to her daughter about sleep apnea because after all, she might die from it,that does happen.

If she is not, cancel on the grounds that you got no sleep.

Either way, get your meds sorted out, def the anti histimines and actually if you need ads then your GP should have a serious think about how to support you when pg.

I feel much better today. I am pleased that I didn't just roll over and let them walk all over me, lazy fucks.

Who? Just Who? Settles down on the sofa (one each!) to watch coronation street followed by eastenders followed by more coronation street while the kitchen is piled high with crap and lets couple sort out kids for bed, and DH trying to work, and me filling the dishwasher and putting packaging in bin that they've left lying around.

The whole premise for their visit was to help DH during the holidays as he's self employed.

Diet drinks make you fat.
Snoring that loudly is a really dangerous health sign and could lead to stroke or heart attack.
She needs medical help.
You need to keep her out of your house till she deals with it.

On the positive side, you have a great potential career ( which you can thank her for) as a simile writer. Still laughing....sheer fucking genius!

smile thanks.

Yeah, they're gone! Sorry to hear it turned into an argument but sounds like they needed to hear a few home truths.

Oh well, they won't be wanting to come back again, will they? Good news all round I say!

Perhaps she should be killed now to save her inflicting this on anyone else?

Perhaps you need anger management.

I think this was more about the woman not pulling her weight wasn't it? If she was lovely and helpful you might have reacted slightly differently. You'd definitely still be angry and frustrated about the snoring, but perhaps you might have felt you could put up with it.

I am a terrible snorer. My boyfriend has an app on his iphone and he regularly records my snoring. It's recorded that he also snores quite loudly at times but mine goes on all night. I am overweight and I smoke, which is why I don't go to the doctor about it.

As a result of the snoring, neither of us gets enough sleep. Sometimes I feel rather okay and awake in the day and if I ask about my snoring, he'll say I hardly did any snoring at all. Brings me to wonder how good daily life could be if I didn't snore...

Anyway, your SIL is gone now. Rest easy!

Booerwang, please please go to your GP about the snoring. If you DO have sleep apnoea then this can be very dangerous. So you are overweight ...big deal, my Mum has sleep apnoea and is skinny. It is generally a hereditary thing but yes being overweight can make it worse. No guarantee that if you lost weight it would go away though. It is a serious condition and has been implicated it heart attacks, strokes and also in an increasing number of road accidents where the driver unaware of his/her sleep apnoea has fallen asleep at the wheel.

It might just be snoring, but generally if it is really bad then you are having attacks of apnoea.

I am overweight and have sleep apnoea, nobody has ever commented on this. When I was diagnosed I met others who had also been recently diagnosed...we ranged in age from 22 - 73 and from skinny to obese.

I am a serious snorer. I wake myself up as well as everybody else
I'm skinny and its been operated on once and its not apnoea, just train impressions.
If the snorer is overweight it is a health risk
losing weight and cutting right back on alcohol make a huge difference

separate rooms for actual sleeping are a really good move - then you are getting proper sleep, as is your OH, which helps with the snoring too
