I’ve been dating a wonderful man over the last year, and we’re planning to move in with each other in about a month. We’re currently working through the planning that goes into a move like that. I’ve never lived with a partner before.
It might sound silly, but I’m probably most worried about waking him up all the time when my cgm alarms go off. I don’t want to deprive him of sleep.
It’s not that uncommon for me to wake up once during the night to have to correct for something - either a trending high soon after going to sleep or a low in the early morning. This doesn’t bother me at all when I’m just sleeping alone, and it doesn’t seem to bother him much when he has stayed over in the past. Sometimes I sleep through my alarm, and he wakes me up. He’s very supportive.
However, I’m a little worried about how this will work out when we’re sleeping next to each other every single night. Right now, it’s only 1-3 times per week. He’s a light sleeper, so he wears ear plugs already (yet still wakes up to the alarms first sometimes). He also has a harder time falling asleep than most people.
For those of you living with a significant other - how have you handled this situation? What has worked best? Do you have any recommendations?
