Gland Warfare at the Intersection, Hypertriglyceridemia Blvd and IWinBitch Lane
I feel fantastic!
Oh, and I just got my most recent blood work results back, too.
TSH is running low. Doc thinks you’re overmedicated and wants to drop it down from 150 to 137… but just until winter. She knows your seasonal ways, you sly devil.
I, however, prefer to stay with 150 thankyewverymuch! Right now I may want to stay awake all night, but I also feel like I’m at 105%. Awesome! I’m sick of just slogging along at 85%, which is what the docs and test results seem to think is “normal”. No, it’s *not* normal. Living life with 100% energy is normal.
Since your long, slow, cascading failure fall-from-grace that started more than 11 years ago began, other problems have arisen as a result of the collapse of the support system you provided to other tissues. The #1 of these problems was the hypertriglyceridemia. … *crickets chirping* … Oh, posh on you! You didn’t even notice I spoke in the past tense. It *was* hypertriglyceridemia, not *is* hypertriglyceridemia. For the first time in six long years, my levels are within normal range. Not in the “Danger Will Robinson!” zone, nor the “Weallgonnadie!” zone, either. Nope, they can’t call me “Crisco for blood” anymore. I have finally found something to fix what you cannot. Consider it a bypass of the rubble pile that was your support system.
You know, it’s been six years, a fired doctor, a moved-away doctor, my current doctor, her horrible staff, four drugs, and side effects, but I finally found something that works. And I’ve beaten the hypertriglyceridemia down with a stick. We are the champions! We are the champions! No time for losers! And, I know it’s not your fault that you don’t work anymore, thyroid, but this stick has your name on it. *wink wink* You just keep that in mind.
No, first I need to use it to kick my own ass for being so lazy and falling off that exercise wagon again. Grr…
