so dh has something called aqueas (sp) nasal spray that will help his snoring if he takes it twice daily but he doesnt angry he forgets. this means he snores like a jack hammer.

i have tried ear plugs but they make my head sound all wooshy and i cant sleep still.

atm we have an arrangement whereby i go to bed at least half an hour before him so that i can get to sleep before his snoring starts, but dh is about four years old and often goes in moods and storms off to bed leaving me with no way to get to sleep. which is what he has done tonight and i can hear him from downstairs it is that bad. he has just woken our baby with the noise!!

my choices when he does this to me is either lay in bed listening to him becoming more homcidal with every passing minute or stay up downstairs all night and catch up on the ironing. i dont seem to be able to fall alseep on sofas i never have been able to.

even when he does let me go to sleep first his snoring still wakes me, but im all sleepy so have more chance of getting back to sleep iyswim? i havent had a full nights sleep since i met him and its getting worse because he is putting on weight. sad

there must be another way? there must be something that will help me sleep through it? would a doctor provide sleeping pills for that? im going insane here. it will end our relationship if it carrys on

A hit man?

Sorry. But I know how difficult it can be. My parents ended up sleeping in separate bedrooms as this was the only way to deal with my mum's snoring. Her weight was a key contributor to this, but that can be a difficult issue to deal with as well.

Have you tried asking your GP for help? Your DH may have sleep apnoea problems.

Have you thought of getting a referral to a sleep clinic?

My dad was assessed and now has this mouthguard thingy he has to put in.It helps with the snoring a little bit,apparently.

yes it was gp who gave him the spray, he has irritaed nasal passages apparently. he needs to take the spray consistently for 3 months before they will refer him to a specialist and dh is incapable of this and even lies about taking it when i remind. I CAN tell when he hasnt took it.

i might look into that hitman option how much do you think that would cost? wink

My dp sleeps downstairs because i cant sleep next to him and his snoring.

dh sleeps downstairs on the sofa because his snoring is really bad. It's not because I tell him to but if he wakes me up I have to hit him quite hard to wake him up. He doesn't want to be covered in bruises.
And when he's had a drink it's even worse.
I can still hear him from the bedroom.

i sleep with earplugs in.
thank F i discovered the joys of earplugs is all i can say.
man, it must be awful if you cant wear them.
i spent a lot of time in the spare room before that.
theres an operation they can have. but mines absolutely terrified of doctors, let alone hospitals and surgeons. so no go there.
red wine is the killer for him, if he has red wine i might as well just move out for the nightwink

oh by god how much do i wish he would sleep downstairs. he says he is too tall for the sofa and im not sure what is wrong with the airbed. i cant really sleep downstairs because i have to get up with the dc's.

i think im going have to get the loft converted arent i?

We are in seperate bedrooms - mainly cause DS sleeps with me (I know it's not good!) but I am not looking forward to sorting DS out and then DH mooving back in! Will be keeping spare room ready!

I have no advice unfortunately. The hitman is an option!

Your DH is being really selfish in not taking the spray. I would be incandescent with rage tbh.

So your DH snores but

a. will not take the spray that lessens the problem
b. strops off to bed when he knows that will mean you can't get to sleep
c. refuses to sleep downstairs or on the sofa despite the fact that it is his refusal to take a snoring remedy that means you can't get to sleep in your own bed
d. you are the one that has to get up with the DCs

I don't think snoring is the problem that will end your relationship. It's the fact that you are married to an extremely selfish man who treats you with no consideration at all.
