Looking: a quiet, safe place to sleep
I have two choices: John's bed or Maylin's bed. Maylin's bed is very comfortable, but Maylin talks in her sleep, screams or cries if she has nightmares, and can rotate ninety degrees, landing her feet in my face. Fortunately, John doesn't scream or cry, but he does talk in his sleep, too, and has one of the loudest snores around. I can usually put up with the snoring, aided by guiding his head or his body to one side. But lately, John has had some very violent dreams involving wild physical movements like thumping his feet on the bed. A few months ago, he even punched me in the jaw during one of these episodes. It is no longer safe. Help.
