  1. Thank you for addressing ‘sleep-divorce’ Dr. B! It helped make me feel less ‘weird’ since I’ve been sleeping in the guest room rather than with my husband, for the last few months. I miss sleeping with him but we have different schedules many days and I’m such a sensitive sleeper and need good rest being a mom to 2 small kids so I’ve found this helps me get decent sleep. Appreciate you! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Not heard that term, sleep divorce. My husband snores like a bear! After almost 40 years of marriage, and the condition worsening with age, we finally found peace sleeping in separate rooms. I’m a very sensitive sleeper so this has made a huge difference in our relationship. Was strange at first, but over time, we both realized how we are more comfortable with this arrangement. I believe it actually improved our relationship. Thanks for this info. Bringing it out into the open, normalizing it, removes any potential shame some may feel because they don’t sleep in the same bed as their partner. How many people believe that it’s a sign of problems or what others might perceive to be so? Knowing we’re not alone makes a big difference. Thanks again 🙏
