Lethargic and Random

My medically induced hypothyroidism is really starting to take the wind out of my sails.  I am really surprised at how I feel, actually.  I thought I would feel sick.  Kind of like I had the flu or something.  But it isn't really like that at all.

It is just this overwhelming lethargy (mixed with lots of other lovely symptoms).  Getting myself to do the smallest and most important things takes a HUGE pep talk from myself.  The day of the popcorn incident, it took my an hour to eat a banana.  And I was starving.  And then last night, I had to pee for like an hour and a half and just couldn't make myself get up and go.

It has to be getting on my husband's nerves.  Thankfully, I married up and he has been SO WONDERFUL with me this week.  Last night I was in bed and Phil was downstairs (I've been giving him some alone time to help him keep his sanity) and I started getting a headache.  There was no way I could get up and get my own Tylenol and I didn't have the energy to yell at him.  So I sent him a text message.

That's how we roll.

For those of you keeping track, I go in for my RAI treatment (or what I call "Thyroid Cancer Prison") next Tuesday.  I don't know how long I will be held hostage kept in the hospital.  It depends on how quickly the radiation levels drop.  Could be a day.  Could be 4 days.  We will see.  I started thinking that I should have been a little more proactive in planning my absence from the world, maybe arranged for some guest posts.  But I am pretty sure it is too late now.  Plus that would require energy to plan and organize it which I do not have.

I would have asked Grace from Camp Patton, since she has had Thyroid Cancer and been through all this jazz.  Although I don't think she whined about it, unlike me.

I would have had Tegan from EnLove with Life do a post since she and I are real life friends.

{Proof.  Tegan was in my bridal party.  And man... my friends are good lookin'}

I probably would have asked Jes from Two Smuppies.  We "met" through Tegan and I have determined that we are best friends, even if Jes doesn't agree (which she does).

But I didn't do any of that.  My bad.  You can always go read their blogs in my absence since they are all funny ladies.  However, it is my intention to plan ahead (a little) and post anyway.  I just won't be able to put the links one Facebook and Twitter.

This post had no purpose.  I'm honestly shocked I had the energy to write this much.  I should probably stop now.


  1. hahaha. This is funny. I hope you aren't held captive too long!

  2. Hang in there, just a little longer. Soon, you'll be bouncing back to health and energy!

  3. you are so GORGEOUS!!! i love that picture :) I'm a new follower of your blog! care to check mine out?!


  4. awh, that is a gorgeous photo, you and your friends all look stunning!

  5. I stumbled on your blog late last night while I was dealing with some medical side effects. I don't have thyroid cancer, but I do have Graves Disease so I know first-hand how debilitating it can be. Before I was diagnosed there were days when I got so depressed because I felt like I had no excuse for why I was so tired and couldn't move. The day I got my diagnosis was fantastic because it meant I finally had an explanation for why I always felt so terrible and why my body physically hurt even though I wasn't doing anything. I was in remission for several months but the tell-tale signs are back so I know life as a pin cushion is in my immediate future.

    I'll be reading along and cheering you along.


Let's be friends. I hope your e-mail is attached to your profile! Then I can e-mail you back.
