I would be happy to snuggle next to Helena if she wants some company. I don't snore.

So just get separate rooms? What is this, I don't even...

I suspect she's a trifle creeped out by Burton.

"Because Tim snores, and he won't get an operation for his deviated septum."
Does a deviated septum cause snoring? I thought having too much tissue in the throat is the cause.

CPAP - snoring done.

That would explain why she likes Johnny Depp so much!

It can contribute.

A pillow over the mouth works rather well.

Mrs_Fab wont kill you, you may just suffocate in your sleep and not get up. There is another device that is more like a mouthguard. It pushes your jaw out to create a larger gap between your tongue and the back of the throat.

I'm convinced my snoring and sleep apnea account for much of what is wrong in my life.

I've also read about minimally invasive surgery to firm up the soft palette and prevent it from sagging down and blocking the airway.

My ex had bad sleep apnea but when she went to have a study done it came back mostly normal. I don't trust sleep studies unless they're done at home where you're comfortable sleeping.

Seriously. My husband snores HORRIBLY. We sleep w/a white noise generator and when that's not enough to cover his snoring, he gets relegated to the guest room.

I had a sleep study in a hospital that had a little trolley system for transporting charts. It went through the suspended ceiling of the room that I was supposed to be sleeping in. So, between the odd situation (having people watch me sleep), the wires keeping me from being able to get comfortable, and the intermittent clatter of a little car traveling across the ceiling, I didn't get much sleep. Needless to say, the study showed that I was not getting must restful sleep.

I wasn't aware that CPAP was dangerous or ineffective... Why don't you want to use it?

In essence, this is what they have. The separate houses are not just next door to each other, the houses are connected - you don't have to go outside to the other person's door to get into that house. They are rich. They can afford this.

Don't know your size, but for many people the answer is weight loss.

Helena and I also maintain separate homes. Can't she get along with anyone?

I once shared a hotel room at a convention (separate beds, thank you) with a guy who snored so loud it sounds as if someone was gutting a pig.
 
2010-12-27 02:52:42 PM  
I think this is a fabulous idea. If I could afford his and hers homes next to each other, I would do it in a heartbeat. And Mr. SBD doesn't even snore that loudly. I would just like to have my own space.

The hunting shack gets pretty loud at night with a bunch of guys who have been drinking and the smoke from the woodstove causing sinus congestion. Luckily, if you drink enough it doesn't keep you awake.

/Ahh, good times.

My doc and I discussed that, but my throat is too narrow, that wouldn't help. So I get to put on the super sexay cpap mask. Makes the wife all hot and bothered, I assure you.

I'm far from an expert on this, but if your throat is too narrow to have a 1/16" wide piece of rigid plastic up in your palette, I'm afraid you might have to get used to CPAP.

If I was fabulously farking wealthy I would consider separate homes an adequate remedy for my snoring if it meant I got to bone HBC, or a reasonable facsimile.

I have a brand-new (less than 2 weeks) gf and last night she invites me over. I let her know that Christmas dinner was still working its was through and I would not be responsible for my digestive system when I lay down. She said she already had two dogs, and not to worry about it.

I loooove having my own space. Of course it is just one room in the house. I have my rooms with my computer and hobby stuff (Sewing machine, etc.) and he has his room with all his stuff. If the door is closed, we knock (usually because someone is on the phone or maybe he's whacking it, who knows) our of respect.

It really is nice to have a space where if he gets too annoying I can just retreat to my room and not be bothered by it. We spend tons of time together too, which like Helena says it is nice knowing it isn't forced intimacy, but because we both want to be close to each other. I think each of us spend 1-2 hours a day in "our" rooms, then the rest together.

Sleeping is hit or miss. His snoring doesn't bother me, but the bed sure does. If my back hurts too much I relocate to the coach. Once we get a new bed we'll be golden, but those dual-side beds are pricey and I need super soft while he needs firm. It sucks.

Separate rooms would be appropriate. Separate homes? She probably lays down some pretty epic and toxic farts.

Timdesuyo: because they're rich, smart, and want a lasting relationship.

BINGO!

Separate houses would be the ideal solution when getting married. If you can't afford separate houses, don't get married, ever.

I'm another vote for separate houses, I've been together with my girlfriend for 20 years and our relationship is much better when we each have our own houses.

Here's an idea, tell him you'll refuse sex until he gets his nose fixed. Problem solved.

But if you can fit a palette in your palate, you shouldn't be snoring in the first place.

Actually, a deviated septum is one of the most common causes of snoring.

Has a similar relationship. It works. My partner snores and I talk in my sleep.
