    Snoring

    Do you snore? Does anyone have an SO or other family member that snores? Anyone ever get fitted for one of those CPAP breathing masks?

    OK, I'll admit it. Sometimes my snoring wakes me, and I know that my kids hear it.

    I don't have CPAP, but I understand it works. I've also heard of an appliance that someone can wear when they sleep, but don't know whether those work.

    I've been told I snore, but I'm always sleeping when it happens.

    I don't doubt it at all because my dad would wake me up in the next room with the doors closed. He was loud, so I guess I could be too.

    My wife bought me a box of those breathe-right strips to put on your nose at night, but for some reason she got the extra large size so they never seem to stay on for more than an hour. I've actually got an average to smallish size nose.

    My wife is a snorer. Once in a great while it gets so bad that I'll go sleep on a couch (the guest room is too close to the master bedroom and next to my snoring daughter's room so I don't get much relief if I go there).

    According to her I am not much of a snorer. I am however a sleep drooler which might be worse.

    Apparently I snore on occasion, but not that loud.

    According to my ex, I don't snore, but make quiet popping sounds. She found it quite cute.

    Living alone I don't know.

    Untreated sleep apnea can:

    Increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, obesity, and diabetes
    Increase the risk of, or worsen, heart failure
    Make arrhythmias or irregular heartbeats, more likely

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Yes. But I can't get a CPAP until they do a sleep study, which my insurance will not cover.
    Invest in the things today, that provide the returns tomorrow.

    I snore really bad - it's embarrassing

    I did a sleep study and my oxygen levels oddly didn't decrease from my snoring so it didn't trigger a machine

    but this was about 7 years ago so I may ask for one again as I am about to hit a new decade this fall

    When ZG snores and wakes me up, I tap the bottom of her feet and she rolls over. I sometimes wake myself up due to my snoring.
    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    I snore. When I was younger it was only when extremely tired or congested. Now it's every night. Most nights are not too bad (according to hubby) but sometimes he has to leave the room to get some sleep.

    He sometimes snores, but it's not bad and doesn't keep anyone awake.

    I am told that I snore, and I have sometimes woken myself. Like Planit, I only seem to snore in my sleep. I come from a long line of snorers. My grandfather was one of the all-time greats. When the whole family would gather at the summer house we could hear him from several rooms away, with all of the doors closed.

    My dogs snore, especially Luke. Yesterday afternoon, since it was raining, I lounged int he Lazy-Boy watching other people doing yard work on TV. Luke lay on the dog bed next to me softly snoring. Emma lay on one end of the couch barking in her sleep, and then Shadow joined. in with a couple barks. It was cute.

    I warned Osiris in advance that I snored. He found out I wasn't kidding. I do not have apnea.

    I am not a big snorer, though it happens. My wife is a bit more of one than me, but I can just roll her over and it stops. Our daughter and one of the dogs are biggest snorers in the house. The dog usually goes to sleep with her and when its time for bed, I go gather the pup and put her in her crate. So, when I walk into that room, I often just stop for a few and take in the symphonic greatness that is the two of them partaking in some sort of great snoring collaboration.
