It keeps me up most nights. The best way I can describe the sound is "two asthmatic walruses with severe rhinovirus infections making energetic love in an echo chamber." It is utterly terrifying, and lasts at least from 10 to 4. I have in honesty lost days at work due to not being able to sleep with this noise.

Is it your neighbour?

Hopefully not one across the street.

Do you mean your DW? Yes, snoring can be a sign of all sorts of health issues. Get her to see if she can be analysed by some sleep clinic, if it's that bad.

Does she know?

Actually, is it me?

Deliberate drip feed: yeah, it's my upstairs neghbour. The same neighbour who tells her five year old DS to shut the fuck up because she's fucking sick of the sound of his fucking whining. (Hint: I do not like the woman)

So your biggest worry for what you describe as a neglectful and abusive mother is that YOUR sleep is disturbed? Yeah- tell her she snores. And report her to ss

Last time I asked about this I got told to mind my own business! Her child, her rules after all.

How old is the kid, because if it's single digits that's emotional abuse tbh.

Well you can tell her but it won't stop her from snoring. The best thing you can do is invest in earplugs, a white noise machine etc... I have sympathy, my DH is a terrible snorer and I've been living with regular sleep deprivation for a decade.

I would probably tell her that you can hear everything. Her snoring and her telling her child to shut the f up

I'm listening to a woman sat next to me at work she sounds exactly the same.
We work night shifts and she finds it very hard to stay awake so when she drops off she snores so very loud it's embarrassing really.
I feel very sorry for you OP what about ear plugs?
A pillow for her face ...

Buy earplugs. Cheaper than moving and more effective than putting your neighbour on the defensive about something she can't help.

DH snores like a B52 bomber. I find the 'Spark Plugs' earplugs from do the trick.
