'My boyfriend's snoring is too much to handle...'

Oct 15, 2013, 23:33 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I'm 25 and my boyfriend is 29. We are in a steady relationship for the past six months.

Both of us are happy with each other. The only issue I have with him is that he snores loudly and I barely get to sleep. I asked him to consider medical help but he keeps ignoring me saying he has a sinus problem.

Dear Himami,
Love can be blind but not deaf. Snoring can take a heavy toll on a relationship. Many women opt to sleep in separate bedrooms when they can’t take the rising decibels from their hubby. Obstruction in the airway between the nose and lungs is usually the cause. First of all, get your guy to acknowledge the problem. Video tape him if he refuses to acknowledge it. There are many ways to control snoring especially if he has sinus. Apart from numerous home remedies like sleeping on your sides and throat exercises, your hubby can also seek medical help to rid himself from the habit.

Diana will solve it!
