DEAR DEIDRE: MOST nights my husband sleeps on the sofa, as his snoring is tearing us apart.
He’s 40 and I’m 38. I’m a nurse, working long shifts, so I have to have a good night’s sleep.
There’s nothing I like more than being able to cuddle him all night.
But the snoring starts as soon as he nods off and it’s impossible for me to relax.
I love him and I don’t want to spend the rest of our married life like this.

DEIDRE SAYS: He should have a check with his GP to be sure he is not suffering from sleep apnoea which, can threaten health.
Once you are sure of that, there is lots of self-help to try – not putting on excess pounds, cutting alcohol and not sleeping on his back.
My e-leaflet Stopping Snoring has lots of ideas. But always start off in bed together for a cuddle even if – until this is sorted – he leaves the bedroom before dozing off.
