  1. I’m so glad you debunked this myth. I can barely function without good sleep, something I’ve been struggling with for several months. I do have sleep apnea, but haven’t received my CPAP machine yet. I also have Hashimoto’s thyroid disease, which affects sleep, so the thyroid is another thing to recommend people have checked. Thanks for this episode.
