Feeling better?

It's been 2.5 weeks since I got back on my beloved thyroid medicine.  I get to have another wonderful phlebotomy experience on Wednesday.  I am just SUPER excited about it.  I will be specifically asking for Tonya this time around.

Anyway... I know I am feeling better these days.  But I think people assumed that the second I got back to taking the thyroid medicine, I would be feeling normal again (who knows what normal feels like since I am now missing a very important gland).  So I started thinking about whether or not I was actually feeling better and came up with the following lists.

Feeling Better
- Worked out 3 times last week.  An hour a piece.  I'm not sure how long it has been since I have done this.  Easily, it has been 6 months.  I am OUT OF SHAPE.  Who knew walking could be so difficult?
- I can safely yawn again without my entire body cramping up.  In fact, I haven't had a muscle cramp in about a week and a half.
- I made dinner.  Like a couple of times.
- Cleaned the bathtub.  It was disgusting.  Let's not talk about it, you'll think I'm gross.
- I actually want to do things.  Crafts, cleaning, projects, work...  It's weird.

Not Better
- Waking up is still REALLY hard.  And getting ready feels like torture.
- My ability to focus is non-existant.  I had a really hard time putting some reports together this morning, as in figuring how to photocopy stuff was more of a challenge that ever before.  Pretty sure my 86-year-old grandmother would have had an easier time doing it (Hi Grandma!!).
- Yesterday, I was ready for bed at 5:30.  Newborns stay up later than that.
- I am SUPER grumpy.  Mother's Day was offensive to me.  My brothers are taking turns being mean to me.  Everybody hates me.  Nobody can drive correctly.  People whine about their "problems" and they aren't real problems.  You catch my drift.  I wrote this seriously snarky blog post last week and never published it because I didn't want to offend anybody.  I probably shouldn't be allowed around people right now.

Good news!!  It will only take like 4 or 6 months to get this all figured out!  Smiley-face.

It's better than having to prepare for another radioactive iodine treatment though so I will take it.


  1. So glad to read that you are doing somewhat better! I'm continuing to pray for you! I hope the morning get easier for you! Praying for strength :)

  2. oh how frustrating. but it does sound like you're doing better ... and you still have a sense of humor. and that's always a great thing. :)

  3. Should I be scared for our blogger date on Saturday? You know, since you said you shouldn't be around people? Or is there a best friend clause in there that says you can make exceptions for your best friend? Because obviously I should get special treatment.

    I'm really excited to see you!

  4. Congratulations on being able to work out more! It sounds like, despite the not so great stuff, a lot of things are looking up and moving forward.

  5. I'm glad you're doing a bit better, even though some things still aren't great. Hopefully you'll continue your upward trend. :)


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