I know it's been a while since I've been here, but things around these parts have been busy.
Take for instance yesterday.
I had to see an ENT doctor because my poor husband keeps complaining that he can't sleep with all my snoring and breathing stoppage during the night.
I never used to snore or stop breathing, it's a new thing since I've been married.
After doing several tests, one of which was very invasive, the doctor told me what he thinks is the problem:
I'm too stress-free. Too relaxed.
He explained it like this - I used to have a stressful job, used to live in a stressful town and my muscles were tense. Now that I'm married, getting jiggy with it (my words, not his), happy and working in a stress-free environment, the muscles in my neck and throat have relaxed so much that my airway gets constricted at night when I go into a deep sleep.
So now I have to sleep overnight at a Sleep Clinic and get all sorts of tests, which creeps me the heck out.
I know I'm not going to be able to sleep with all sorts of people watching me and recording my vitals. And I'm going to be all wired up.
Help, I need some stress in my life!!!!
I never thought I would ever say that last sentence.
