Hi everyone.

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.

Imagine that.

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.

I think the thought is enough to give anyone some added stress! But how lovely to hear you are so haoppy, relaxed, and that stress is no longer dominating your life. Go to the clinic and hopefully they will sort this for you, Theresa.

That's a first. A doctor telling a patient they are too stress free. Go figure.

I'll keep you in prayer for the testing.

Hello dear Theresa:-)

Guess what arrived in the mail today...yesssss, the birthday parcel you sent me!! I just LOVE the calendar and the travel kit!!! Thank you SO much, I'm deeply touched that you even wanted to send me something for my birthday:-) Loved the card as well!

I had to giggle when I read what your doctor said about you being too unstressed...I bet most people would love to feel like that. lol I don't blame you for being nervous about the Sleep Clinic, don't think I could get through that! lol

Thank you again!!! xoxo

My husband spent the night at a sleep center....now he sleeps with a mask at night. I am addicted to the sound the mask machine makes. I don't sleep well when we his out of town.

Stress free huh? Maybe you should take the dishwasher out again. That would be enough to stress me out! Hope everything goes well.

Have I got some stress for you! No one has EVER told me I was stress free! I'm in awe of you now.
