Why I Love My Husband and a Thyroid Question!
1) The other night before we fell asleep, Boomz and I were holding hands and he started thumb-wrestling with me! Of course, it wasn't a fair fight, because his thumbs are so much bigger than mine, so he let me use my index finger to help. :) I still lost, but I thought that was just so cute. :)
2) He remembered that I wanted the third Kristin Lavransdatter book (The Cross. Seriously EVERYONE should read these books. They come highly recommended by Leila! :) ), and he got it for me for our anniversary, even though we said we weren't getting each other anything. :) I thought it was so wonderful that he remembered-he even got the right translator!
Okay, onto my thyroid question. For the past few months (maybe longer than a few months, I'm not really sure), I've been getting 7-8 hours of sleep and I still wake up exhausted. Sometimes, I'll wake up in the middle of the night wide awake (usually around 3-5 AM) and won't be able to go back to sleep because my mind is racing and my heart is pounding really fast and hard. If I DO fall asleep, I'm in that stupid half-asleep state. It's been really bad the last couple of weeks. I've been sleeping on the couch half the time so I don't keep Boomz awake with my tossing and turning. Does this have anything to do with my thyroid? My gut tells me it does, but I want to know what you experts know! :)
