Ah Ha Moment

Yesterday I woke up...or never even fell asleep extremely exhausted. I have this issue where (be ready for TMI) I wake up drench in sweat. I have no clue why but it can be 50 degrees in the room with a fan on me and still get hot. So I decided to do a little research. I found out that it is common and there are physical, emotional, environmental and medical reasons for such thing happening. Well one said side effect to meds, great there are three meds that it could be. So I am not messing with that. The other was genetic, your parents to it you most likely do it. So I called mom, only menopause hot flashes. Ok, next on the list, POLYESTER! So here's the thing I went to Kohls a few weeks ago and got a 149.99 comfortor for 42.00. I was so happy bc it works perfect in our room. Well I checked it...it is 100% polyester. Polyester does not let your body breathe when wearing or sleeping on it or under it. So Last night I used a blanket Bri's aunt made me. I did not wake up until the 5am kitty alarm!!!! I even still had my fleece pants and hoodie on!!! My goodness how happy am I!! :) If you have any issues read this article http://www.helpfornightsweats.com/sweating-while-sleeping/ it gives some good hints as to why you might be having trouble.

Thanks for your insight on my GF post!!

This happens to me all the time!! Polyester, huh? I think most of my pj tops are made of this--no wonder! Sorry your new comforter doesn't work but at least it looks pretty!
