I am trying to revive my mojo. The cold weather is still making me want to hibernate. Although I talked with my doctor today and she is referring me for a sleep study. We had discussed my lack of energy along with other issues. I have been told that I snore (yes, sad but true. my own mother told me so) and I have been told that I gasp for breath while sleeping at times. So we looked at some other factors. I found some of them pretty interesting.
Did you know that a "thick neck" is a factor in sleep apnea - I never wear a necktie because I choke. I generally buy a size 16 shirt for the neck size - but I decided to measure my neck. Sheesh..it is almost 18 inches around. That is a factor.
I am male (automatic factor.) I have and am treated for high blood pressure -another factor.
Well you get the picture. So in a couple of weeks I go for a consult and then will be scheduled (most likely) for a study.
One of the most interesting facts is that many people with sleep apnea think they sleep well all night. I know I would tell you I sleep like a baby. However, with apnea, you wake up multiple times during the night ; you just may not realize it.
Did it seem like I got lost there? Not really. I hope you don't mind the health information sharing.
I am still trying to get my mojo back. So tonight I forced myself to sew something. Just a teeny bit of sewing. Since I am working on the wonky nine patches quilt, I decided that a couple of those blocks would be ideal. I chose contrasting fabrics and went to town. The bendable bright light that I got for Christmas really lit up the sewing area. I did notice that it tends to glare off the presser feet. But I just adjusted the angle and it was fine.
Here are the two blocks side by side.
I love the results. And I love getting mirror image blocks. These almost have a "star" shape in them.
Are you sewing or is your mojo frozen? Personally I would love a week in the tropics.
Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated.
