Still sleep on the same side of the bed?

Left side sleeper here, as close to the edge as possible. Janet preferred the right side and since I was/am a restless sleeper (and occasional snorer to boot) I slept on the extreme left edge so I wouldn't disturb her sleep. Four years later and I moved to another part of the house, got a king size mattress and find myself still so far to the left that it's amazing I haven't fallen off.Internet definition of right vs. left side: Most people sleep on their back (or should) thus as you lay down…See More

I am new to this site, however I share you feeling of despair.  Almost 4 years and I am miserable.  Cannot look at pictures of my husband. Sounds like you are living hell on earth, I know I am.
