    Default Major vent and need suggestions!

    I have to vent or I am going to loose my noodles and hoping someone had experienced this and can help.
    As if I am not sleep deprived enough... My DP snores like a chainsaw. Enough to wake me up an stop me from going back to sleep.. I have just laid in bed for a good hour trying to sleep but can't. This happens every single night. He is definitely overweight, is aware of this and says he should exercise but generally can't be bothered. I personally think he needs to suck it up and do something. I think he is lazy.. No way to be tactful about that.
    On top of this, he gets terrible leg twitches which also wake me up. The only thing i can find is something called restless leg syndrome but he doesn't quite meet that criteria. I am an incredibly light sleeper I guess. Does the problem lie with me and should be I be getting something to help me sleep? I think the problem lies with him so he should be seeking treatment, not me! He has been to GP who has prescribed a couple of different things with no avail. DP scoffs at natural medicine. The easiest solution is for me to sleep elsewhere however there IS nowhere else in the house, other than the lounge. Not so great for my back, or his, should I send him there. Secondly, he is extremely sensitive and despite me explaining why I am sleeping on the lounge, takes great offence at it and feels that I am trying to put space between us not to mention the likely effect on intimacy.

    Sorry to post about something that seems so trivial but I am at my wits end and as I said, close to loosing my noodles!

    i have exactly the same problem - the snoring, the restless legs (not every night thank god) and he also sleepwalks at times and forgets where the bathroom is
    i'm a really light sleeper and for the past 10 years i have worn ear plugs every single night. i buy the soft, yellow ones from the chemist and it's the only way i can sleep.
    on a bad night i will have a few mersyndol (over the counter medication).
    i'd also suggest a king size bed if you can afford it. it has made a big difference to me.

    Thanks lovely! I had considered earplugs but can't hear bub through the monitor! I am all too familiar with mersyndol. Works a treat you poor thing! The sleepwalking must be terrible!

    100% sounds like sleep apnoea. Google the signs.. You'll see they fit. My Dad, my Fil and my husband all have it. My husband and I have slept in seperate beds for 6 years because of it.

    Oh and in regards to him not understanding why you u would want to sleep elsewhere... Film him.. Thats what I did. It was a huge shock for my husband and was the reason he decided to go get a sleep study!

    My hubby is the same!! Worst thing is he lost heaps of weight a couple of yrs ago and it all stopped but then the weight came back!
    Fortunately our couch is comfy, I actually find it comfier than out bed. Sounds like it might be worth investing in a camp mattress that can be easily stored. It's fine for him to get offended when he is the one getting a full nights sleep!

    Great idea about the filming and the camp mattress. He is such a butthead. And ignoramus. Just doesn't understand

    How on earth can I motivate him to loose weight? Without insulting him? He will carry on like a child if I don't beat around the bush.. I am cooking healthy food.. I have lost 50 kg.. He has that.. Then eats other stuff too!
