The middle of the night separation between couples
It’s not by choice that so many couples end up sleeping in separate beds and rooms. It’s miserable and it’s not by choice but frequently one of the spouses has to leave since the constant elbowing and prompting your partner to turn on his side is robbing BOTH partners of precious sleep. Everyone ends up miserable.
Sleep apnea can be called the disease of listeners. Since men are the more frequent sufferers of apnea, the ‘listeners” tend to be female. Research shows that partners of snorers are 3 times more likely to suffer of insomnia than partners of non-snorers.
Sleep apnea and snoring are akin to smoking in the sense that both the snorer and people around the smoker tend to be significantly affected.
Sleep deprivation affects the function of nearly every part of your body, including your brain, and has been tied to heart problems, an increase in stress hormones, obesity and depression.
That’s just the abbreviated list. If you have a partner who snores consult with a doctor to see how you BOTH can be helped.
