I am enjoying blogging. I can write all day long! That isn’t a problem with me at all. My problem seems to be coming up with good titles for my posts. Why is that such a struggle?? So… forgive me if they sounds boring and not thought out. I try. I really do!!
It’s a nasty rain day here in Georgia. I’m thankful that I don’t have to be out in it today!
I am also thankful that I have had more energy lately! My endocrinologist put on a thyroid medication called “Armour Thyroid”. Of course, it’s not really to help my Hashi’s or to help my thyroid. It’s just to help me battle the symptoms of it all. This autoimmune disease will still kill my thyroid over time. Could be months. Could be years. The Hashi’s will never go away, unfortunately.

I don’t have long to write this morning since it’s a work day, but I wanted to document that I had a MEDICAL SCARE yesterday!!
My blood pressure has been running high. (I have been checking it at work) Yesterday, before I worked out… it was high — 139/95!!!! I was kind of scared to work out after that, but I did.
Then, while I was doing Zumba… about 40 minutes into it… I started seeing stars!! I knew I needed to sit down. So, I did. I felt better then. It sure did scare me!!! I just pray that it’s my thyroid and nothing else. I pray that I can take medication for it and feel better.

All I can think about is all this possible thyroid stuff!!! It is consuming my mind! I’m not really worried. (Ya, right!!) I’m just anxious to get started on some answers and get to feeling like myself again! (I’m STILL waiting on that!)
I keep thinking … what if the doctor says that my thyroid is fine?? Then WHAT? Do I keep insisting on answers?? UGH! I don’t know what to do.
I know that I really need to quit thinking about it and let God be in control. It sure is hard to do, though.
I’m going to get some chores done here at home this morning and then go to town. I need to run some errands and then I have to go to the nursing home. Chester ate some of my mom’s important papers! Soooo…. I have to go get copies of those and then take them to get signed.
Chester was one of our beautiful Golden Retrievers. Sadly, he developed Leukemia and we had to put him down in April of last year. 😦
