    "The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."

I have anxiety about my snoring. I'm trying to train myself not to snore. When I stay with lovers, I'll keep myself awake all night, to make sure I don't disturb them, or I simply isolate myself so I won't have to face them.

I hate snoring.

Have you ever asked your lover about whether she/he is bothered by your snoring?

Everyone snores at least once in a while, some people more often than others. It's not necessarily either a problem or even objectionable. Before I was married, one of my sons' cats used to sleep on my shoulder and purr as I was falling asleep. My wife snores. To me it sounds like purring. I find it comforting and kind of cute. :)

Perhaps, instead of lying awake all night worrying about it, you could just raise it as a topic of discussion. I know if I have a beer or two and then sleep on my back, I'll almost certainly snore. I just tell her to give me a poke so I roll onto my side and it will stop.

I was wondering the same thing as David as to whether you have asked your lover whether your snoring is bother him or her? Also, it is possible that they are a heavy sleeper and don't even hear you.

I know that I am the same with having a drink or two, if I do then I am guaranteed that I am going to snore. Another thing is that I tend to talk in my sleep so I do forewarn people of this beforehand so that they are not alarmed.
