I got words on Wordless Wednesday
Yep, I got words on Wordless Wednesday. I've been in the grip of trying to get my thryoid on track. It's been about 12 months of trying. Monday I scooted into the lab for a quick blood draw. I knew something was up then the results didn't come up on my chart mid-day - I should have access to 'normal' labs in real time - so the delay let me know something was up. UP UP UP. Dang, I'm at a TSH of 9 - which is the highest my TSH has been (that I know of) - which means that I've got a hypo-thyroid deal goin' on. And my racoon eyes? Yeah, now we know why I look like I have 2 black eyes. And my malaise? 9 - check. And my constant low level body ache? It's 9. Feeling like my view is always blurry? Um.....9
Somehow knowing I'm at 9 brought the roof down - like HELL YES I FEEL LIKE CRAP. I'm trying to recover from the crush of admitting how freakin' shitty I actually feel. I'll be back when I'm back...until then, no promises.
