I don't usually blog at work, but I need some help...
Those of you that know me well are aware that I snore. And that it's pretty loud. While it's been an annoyance for my roommates, it hasn't been a huge problem for me before, because I still sleep through it, and the roommates that I've had were either heavy sleepers, or found some other way to deal with it--closing doors, ear plugs, falling asleep before me, etc.
Well, now I've got someone trying to sleep next to me, whose sleep is actually important to me. Not that I didn't care about my roommates... I just didn't care enough to do much about it before. Poor Hayley has tried everything, but some nights it just isn't enough to let her sleep. I feel horrible that I keep her up, so does anyone have any suggestions or snoring remedies that will help? I'm using Breathe Right Strips right now and I stay awake reading so Hayley can try to fall asleep before me. Hayley is also using ear plugs, but those make her ears hurt the rest of the day. From the little bit of research I've done this morning, I am going sleep with just the curvy pillow that Hayley already had and keep my head in the correct position to keep my breathing passage open, and I might try to sleep with an under-bite because of this, but does anyone know of anything that really works? If you do, please let me know! Hayley will be thankful and I'll feel better knowing I'm not keeping her up all night long.
Oh, as a post script, I'm going to be working on losing weight again... that seems to be the best remedy for snoring. When I weigh less, I snore less. So no more free soda at work, no more sneaking treats from the secret stash in the finance office, and only fruit from work on Treat Friday. (Holy crap, my workplace is probably making me gain 5 pounds a week!!!) But if you have suggestions that will work in less time than it takes me to lose 20-30 pounds, I'd appreciate them.
