Seven ladies had a night of laughing and wine and pizza and one by one retired to bed! After showers, two of us were trying to get to sleep, but a snoring sound from afar interrupted our peace. We thought one of the husbands may have visited – snoring doesn’t sound sweet like a female voice can!
We went down the hall to investigate and we were surprised to find it was our refined English friend – We expected it to be one of our Aussie friends!! We took a video on a phone, however, due to the lighting the visuals were not clear, but the sound recording was perfect!!! The commentary on the case was hilarious and when our English friend woke, she didn’t scream, or panic, but calmly said a soft obscenity! After the shenanigans the snoring ceased, however, talking about this funny happening will not! The good news is our friend only has a light snoring condition and in this case was probably due to a bit of wine! Nevertheless, thirty per cent of ladies snore – so our friend is not alone!
This doesn’t mean we don’t think our friend is still perfect. Going on the percentage of women snoring and the English connection – The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, may snore! After just having baby George, Kate may be sleep deprived, which can also cause light snoring.
When people breathe easily and have a healthy airway (do not snore) the muscles between the nose and voice box loosen up when air is having trouble passing. Being under the influence, smoking, asthma, allergies or a simple cold can affect airways.
There is a big difference between light snoring and snoring that is connected to sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a common, chronic sleep disorder that causes patients to pause or stop breathing during deep levels of sleep.
Having a serious sleeping disorder is embarrassing and may stop people wanting to sleep away from home. There is help available and the solution might be more simple than you think. Waking up with a dry mouth, sore throat, or headache on a regular basis is a clue, but see your doctor to be certain.
