I am at my wits end this week. I just don't know what to do with DH! DH will not wake up in the morning and it's becoming a serious anxiety issue for me. It's not new but the last few weeks have been worse than normal.
I hate alarm clocks, always have. The sound of even 1/2 of a second of the alarm clock noise makes me so anxious and stressed it's not even funny. The loudness of it, the sharpness, I just do not like alarm clocks. As a result, I'm a "get up at the last possible moment to be ready for work, turn alarm clock off as soon as it goes off" type of person.
DH on the other hand does not even hear the alarm clock. It could go off for over an hour and he would not hear it. If he does, he often hits snooze or sometimes unconsciously turns it off.
I need a solution to get him up in the morning. I was late every day this week because he would not wake up. I wanted to catch my 5:41 train, but I had to catch the 6:10 train each day because he would not get out of bed. I am supposed to start work at 7AM but I was getting in at 7:20 each day because of the later train.
Lights don't work, sounds don't work, music doesn't work, alarms don't work, taking the covers off him doesn't work. I get up at 4:30AM. I will tell him every 10 minutes to wake up all morning long and most of the time I have to yell at him last minute that I am going to be late for work around 5:55 so he can drive me to the station!
It's actually putting me in tears the last few mornings because I am so stressed about it. I don't have to get up at 4:30, or at least I wouldn't have to if he got up and helped share morning responsibilities. I could get up at 5AM instead of he got up at the same time, made coffee, let the dog out, etc. Instead I have to get up and do all that, PLUS I have to run upstairs every 10 minutes to try and get him up.
I'm not always on this early shift, but next week I am too and I am dreading it.
And no - just leaving and taking the car myself is not an option. I'm too nice to do that. We have one car and when I'm on early shift he has to drive me (no buses available that early) so that he can have the car to get to the station later himself.
