So here's something: My boyfriend slept on the couch Saturday night because he couldn't stand to sleep next to me.
That's how badly I snore. It horrifies me, in part because I feel so helpless. It's as if I become this horrible other thing when I fall asleep. I am so self-conscious about it, so embarrassed.
He is not complaining about my attractiveness or personal hygiene. But, still. I feel gross. I feel horrible and gross, because no matter what he says, what I hear is, "I can't stand to be next to you."
