Something my husband and I sometimes argue about is the way that I sleep.
At some point in the last few years, I started sleeping under the covers. And by that, I mean I am entirely under the covers. Including my head.
There are several reasons I like to sleep that way. First, it keeps the sun out in the morning. Second, it's nice and warm under the covers (my face gets cold). Third, it makes me less likely to be disturbed by my husband coming to bed a couple of hours after I do. (it used to keep me from getting blown on by his CPAP machine, but he doesn't use that anymore.)
Anyway, my husband doesn't want me to sleep under the covers because:
1) he's worried that it might be bad for my health
2) it makes me look like I'm dead
I figure since I'm the one actually sleeping, it should be up to me whether I'm under the covers or not. But I thought I would post it to the readers to ask whether my husband has a point or not.
As long as he doesn't fart, I can't imagine you suffocating.ReplyDelete
We have separate blankets, so that wouldn't be an issue :-)Delete
my question is, if he quit using CPAP, how do you sleep through the snoring???ReplyDelete
He replaced it with an orthotic device that has actually been fairly effective.Delete
Is it less restricting on the face? Can you share a pic of what it looks like? My dad won't even have the test because he won't be able to wear the mask (we know for a fact he has apnea)!Delete
I doubt you'll suffocate since your under not wrapped in the blanket? I get as far down as I can & bury my face into my pillow(s), that seems worse to me???ReplyDelete
What steph said.ReplyDelete
I sleep that way too, and sometimes on my stomach with my head under the pillows. I just keep an air hole like a seal. :) And we have separate blankets too, d/t my mid-life power surges.ReplyDelete
I have a cat and a dog that sleep under blankets and they seem just fine.ReplyDelete
I sleep under the covers many nights. I seriously think it's a physician thing- it started during residency on call nights when the only way I could get some sleep was on a couch in the ICU with the blanket over my head to block out the light. Every physician I know thinks this is a normal habit, and everyone else thinks we're all crazy.ReplyDelete
I "hide" under the blankets too. Helps especially when husband turns on the nightlight in the middle of the night......ReplyDelete
Must be a doctor thing. I do it too.ReplyDelete
