Starting the Quest to Stop Snoring Aaron Johnson The pounding headaches I get in the morning, the cotton mouth, the feeling of being tired even though I slept 8 hours…These all lead me to continue my never-ending search for a cure to my chronic problem: snoring. And this is only the beginning. I wake my wife up almost every night with my nasal foghorn, and believe me, we’re way past the “oh, isn’t that cute” stage. Sometimes the only way I know I’m snoring is from her round-house kicks below our bed sheets late at night. Don’t get me wrong…Marcy has been great in the past, trying to help me find ways to stop snoring : the chin straps, mouth pieces, nasal strips, and other products from an endless parade of failed “remedies.” Through this blog, I hope that some of you can offer tips for my snoring, and I plan to document my journey to find a cure. At work, one of my responsibilities is to ensure the quality of my company’s products (sports memorabilia), and so, with my crusade to stop snoring, I will evaluate various products with the same critical eye, or shall we say, “critical schnozz.” Hopefully this will be of help to others, too. Marcy loves me, of course, but after seventeen years of marriage, nearly all of it accompanied by the rumbles of my nasal freight train, how much more can she possibly stand? My wife deserves a rest—literally—having raised our teenage son and two-year-old daughter, single-handedly at times. Two friends of ours actually slept in separate bedrooms for similar reasons, and I wonder if that contributed to their divorce. Well, anyway, I’m determined that we not fall victim to the same problem. I am on this quest for my wife, for myself, and also for our children and Teddy (yes, I have even woken up our dog from across the room!). You would think it’s a problem easily solved: go to Walmart, buy a box of those nasal strips, slap one on, and presto! But it’s not that easy, and I’ve got the chaffing on my nose to prove it. The last time I peeled one of those bad boys off my face, I felt like Chewbacca getting a Brazilian bikini wax. I nearly screamed like a wookie! Some people say those strips kind of work, that they come “close” to stopping the snoring. But like my favorite teacher used to say, “close” only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. There ain’t no “close” or “kind of” next to my hundred decibels of brute nostril power! There has got to be something better out there. Through your help and this blog, I hope we can find it!
