Tea(-4) Time with Tracy: Week of September 25th
Results are back! My TSH is now at 4.9001! I’m returning to the doctor Tuesday for my next blood test to monitor the level. My fingers are crossed that it’ll be below 4. I’m worried that with stress, it will increase. Currently, I am in the process of preparing all my essays and applications for college to send out in November. I never imagined that this process would be so stressful! Throughout my whole high school experience, what I was looking forward to the most was applying to colleges! Well, of course, this was before I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, which occurred Junior year. It has had such a significant impact on my life, and sometimes, I wonder what it may have been like if I never had it.
What do all of you think? I’d like to know if you think stress has contributed to fluctuations in your TSH? Tell me about your personal experiences and struggles with your TSH!
Sending much love and support your way,
