Just a Nice Little Coffee Klatch with my Thyroid
Good Afternoon thyroid! Hello! Are you awake?
It is another one of those days; that the body is moving, but the brain is empty and the dropsies (my word) are hitting hard.
The doctor called the other day and upped the med, stating that it is not working, whereas 6 weeks ago, on the same dosage, it was over working. So, the OLD body is once again in shock and not knowing as to what to do.
I have kept as busy as I could. When someone needs food from the food pantry, I will hike up 3 miles, which I have to pace down to 20 minutes. But, trust me folks, don’t do it when it is 99 degrees outside with the same amount of humidity! You end up soaking wet! Or am I exhausted due to the fact that I am 60?
I am busy with the yard, OH, Yes! I’m also helping my neighbor who is fighting cancer, with water aerobic in my pool. So, maybe if I keep busy enough, my body and brain will start working together.
The pain has been the worst ever this summer. But, I have to keep going, for if I stop, I am not sure if I will get up again. Besides, the yard and house will not get done if I sit and have a self pity day! Why should I feel sorry for myself, when there are others out there so much worse off than myself?
Have a doctor’s appointment next week, and I am so dreading it. She’s upset that I am still overweight. But, heck, my T4 doesn’t register, so what the heck. The TSH and T3 are low as well, but six weeks ago, they were over. What is the next step?!
She doesn’t get that what she eats in two days is more than I eat in a week, to keep my weight down. She listens, but she is not hearing what me.
I do apologize for not staying better in touch, but I really have kept busy, for if I stop the pain just takes control and the foggy brain stays empty. So, off I go to work; hopefully I will be able to hold the pencil to draw little dragons and mice.
