my wife cannot go to sleep without the tv on. it frustrates me to no end because i need dark and silence to sleep. her 1st marriage wasn't very sweet and thats what i think it is but i'm not a doctor. maybe someone else out there has an answer or goes thru the same ting i do or my wife does. reply please before i throw the expensive tv's out the window...lol just kiddingView Thread
go to bed early, mostly between 7pm 9pm est. but i'm up between 3 and 5 am like the army i was in. dont need an alarm clock. my wife can put the tv on sleep 2 hours so it seems and be ready for an extravaganza. i dont know if her previous marriage has anything to do with this but it was hell i promise. he is dead now luckily her 3 children need the tv on to sleep also and i had hard time getting to sleep when i lived with her for 22 months then came back up north b4 going back down to marry her. going on 3 yrs married december. i'm not a doctor but i still think it COULD be from the way her dead ex treated her and it surely affected the children. now she will watch the big tv in the parlor on the couch but it looks like she loves the light from the tv when i watch her sleep. i may be sicker than her. LOL.... its hard to tell her to see a doctor because she does not want to go and thats another story. her being 44 and me 58 can that be, i dont know, she has copd right lung, and 30% kidney function which i think is from the beatings she took..i'm not a dr. she can have the best treatment in the world by far under a program i can give her being retired disability from military. she wont go she said. looks like i'll have to stick this one out and toughen up like i always have. we have a blast life is great and i wished that i had met this girl b4 i met my ex(lol) but i would have been to old for her. well all in all i suppose she can watch the 65" in the parlor and fall asleep and ill stay in the bedroom in the dark and pray she wakes in the morning to tell her i love her and start a new day. thanks BobView Thread
