Sleep woes linked to middle-aged pudge

I struggle with both sleep issues (I have a really bad back which accounts for some, but not all of it) and weight issues (I have lost a considerable amount of weight on BHRT, but it's difficult for me --- my thyroid is whacky again). So comforting (rolling eyes here in sarcasm) to know that the two are related! Check out this article from MSNBC.com on the link between sleep disruption and weight gain in middle age women.

  1. I could sleep if I weren't so damn hot. Some nights it feels like I might burst into flames. What's really weird though is that I don't have hot flashes during the day.
