If I had waited one more week it would be another Holiday Weekend! BUT I figured I should get some thoughts out here.
It’s been a rough summer here for me personally. I, like Dori, just keep swimming, and when I actually stop to take account of why it feels like I’m swimming uphill (I realize that’s not really a thing, it was a joke) I realize that I have been ignoring all kinds of signs that things are just not right.
As time has gone on I realize things have been getting worse and worse and I was blaming it all on so many other things. I am going to guess it has been going on over 6 months but due to the high cortisol before the move I was not feeling it so much but now that life is calming down I started feeling worse when I really expected to feel better!
For the last three months I have had two cycles a month. It’s hot in Florida but I am always so cold that it feels good, but lately even my house is too hot for me and Hubby says “feels fine to me”. Hair falling out, bloated so bad and exhausted! I finally put two and two together the day before yesterday and called the Doctor. My thyroid meds are too high.
I have stopped taking them altogether for a few days, just trying to brink my levels down faster, and then next week I will start at the lower dose they suggested. I feel so poopy lol – This needs to stop soon! I have my daughter and her fiance` coming next Wednesday, my sister and her husband next Friday and then at least 12-15 people Sunday for a small gathering to celebrate my daughter and her fiance
Tonight we are supposed to go out for dinner and a dink or two with our Realtor to celebrate John’s Birthday and also his Girlfriend’s band is playing at a local joint. The band does not start until 8:30 UGH I will not make it much past 10:00 without dying.
Accounting for my summer activity:
Diet – Off and on Keto. Have not gained all 10 pounds back but at least 6 🙁
Exercise – Walking the dogs nightly for the last week or so – need to start walking farther
School – Started August 12th. So far so good – Foundations in Statistics is this class.
Swimming and Drinking or hanging out in the pool and drinking is more like it – not much real swimming happens LOL
