correction. i kept checking up on you because you werent making any noise
and i thought you'd suffocated and *died*. it was that much of a switch.
when you're used to hearing someone sleeping 40 feet down the hallway
behind two closed doors and then suddenly you hear nothing...

due to the breeze thingy's pads wearing out, bill sometimes gets little
red patches on his nose from the leaking airflow. especially when he has a
cold. once at the doctor's office the doc asked if he did cocaine. i found it

i have a pair of sennheisers for headphones (attatched to sblive) and i
crank them to maximum volume when im listening to my music. i'm three rooms
away from the bedroom. used to be i could hear him snoring while i was
listening to music. it was that loud for about two, two and a half years.
which is to say nothing of the foul moods he got into cause he wasnt sleeping
and then the arguments over him falling asleep while driving.
its easy now to look back and see that the solution was so simple and
worked so dramatically but it was hell for awhile.
the first night though, he got 4 hours of sleep. it was a friday. he
went to bed at 2 and i woke him up out of paranoia (that whole no-noise
thing bothered me) at 6. we went for breakfast. he didnt sleep for
another 18 hours.
it was like waking up with a different person.
