and I just need to vent. The biggest source of conflict between my girlfriend and I has always been our sleeping habits, of all things. The problem is she is a light sleeper, whereas I'm not only a deep sleeper, but I also have a chronic snoring problem. (I finally had a sleep study done about a month ago, and the results indicated I have severe obstructive sleep apnea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obstructi…), hence the snoring.) My doctor recommended I get a CPAP machine, and I'm in the process of doing so. They put a CPAP on me during my sleep study, and it completely eliminated my snoring. Therefore, I'm hopeful as soon as I get my CPAP, a lot of the tension between my gf and I will go away. In the meantime, things have been really brutal. I don't usually talk about this, but my girlfriend has a HORRIBLE temper, and her fuse has been about as short as I've ever seen it. You wouldn't believe the amount of raging and swearing she does at night, and quite frankly it scares the crap out of me. (Not to mention, her bitching and moaning keeps me awake too, so I start fuming as well.) It's turning into a volatile situation, and I would consider breaking up with her just to get out it if I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel in the form of the CPAP. I'm trying to keep my chin up and keep things civil with my girlfriend, but sometimes it's hard to resist the urge to drive away and hide at my mother's house out of town until I get my machine all set up.
