I did it all slowly. Got praise from docs. 7 months later still on herbals to sleep but wanted off them too. And wanted, after all my efforts, to sleep more than 4 hours.Then my husband died 5 weeks ago. Still did not give in, but can't understand stories i
of just a few bad nights then sleeping. Went to see my psychiatrist this week. She had been in holiday when my husband died. Halfway through the session, she leaned forward and commented on a swelling in my neck. I don't see it, but feels puffy, and my voice is gravelly. Has been for ages. All out down to stress. Blood test, she said, and if normal, a scan. The test was normal. The doc said yes, there is something there. And it can affect your voice. Yes, said my sister, and it can make your hair do fall out!, My ongoing problem. Also scalp itch. Also - get this. It can affect your sleep.

If I get this checked and it IS my thyroid, man, I'll be dangerous!
