I don't get why you can fall asleep when you're alone in the bed but not with him in it.

I don't know either. I feel claustrophobic or like I don't have enough space or something.

We also had some issues with a stinky neighbor at the beginning of the summer, and it made the bedroom a negative place for me for a while. We moved the bed, but that threw off the feng shui. That was the start of these sleep issues, I guess. Although I had trouble sleeping back when his snoring was out of control.

Swap the twin bed for a king and you're all set.

I had to laugh out loud when I read that CRAP saved your marriage! Then I read it again. What does CPAP stand for?

CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure. It's a treatment that uses mild air pressure to keep airways open.

I have been single since 2007 (before that, married for 15+ years). I have a king size bed, but I can't fall asleep in it. It's new (my house burned down a couple of years ago so it was replaced then). But, I sleep on a twin mattress on the floor of my bedroom. That is the only place I can sleep. And I have to have a fan pointed at me for air flow.

CPAP is a mask that pressurizes your nasal cavity (just a little) to prevent snoring / Apnea.

Stopping snoring saved my marriage.

Stopping sleep apnea (where you stop breathing in small increments due to the collapse of the soft pallette) probably saved my life.

Binaural beats (probably placebo effect but hey sometimes a placebo effect is effective).

OTC products make my legs twitch, can't use them at all (causes periodic limb movement disorder to act up).
