Also, don’t laugh at your wife if you snore. At one point I think I went almost insane at the sound of my husband’s snoring, and that’s not using the word in any exaggerated sense. It was like we would be normal people all day and then I’d be plunged into a nightmare world at night. Wherever I went in the house, the noise could penetrate. I couldn’t wear earplugs back then because we had small children and I knew there was no way he would hear them if they needed anything. I’ve since read that it is possible to develop a sort of phobia to noises like that, and I think that’s probably what happened. He would say ‘just wake me’ but even if I shook him awake he would lapse back into it within seconds. If ever there was a time when I could envisage turning into an axe murderer, that was it. Losing weight sorted it more or less completely, but it took a heart attack for him to do that. He’s fine now, and only very occasionally snores, but I still have to wear earplugs at night in order to relax.
