Stop the madness!

I'm feeling pretty lucky.  It's been almost 2 weeks since I adjusted the thyroid medications (see last post) and I'm continuing to feel pretty good.  I still have some odd complaints, aches in my hip and back and my hands are usually still achey in the mornings but I'm sleeping really well and waking up … Continue reading Stop the madness!

Things I will do once I’m better

Im my collating past results and re-reading posts, so far it’s been all downhill… Here I am 8 months in, almost 2 years ago, with a list of things I hope to do when I’m better and I now can, although I’m not completely better. This is encouraging.

What's wrong with me?

It’s felt like a very long time, this last 8 months and I know (or hope) that one day this too, will have passed and we can all look back with ‘gosh, remember that year I was so sick?’.  Fingers crossed!

Clean my house myself

Sometimes it's hard to work out where to place the blame.  The 5 year old still comes in most nights and interrupts my sleep, sometimes she sleeps well … Continue reading Reminders

Is it ok?

I haven't posted in 3 months and that's a shame because now I can't easily look back and recognise what's been going on.  The doctor upped one of my medications back at the end of January and suggested an appointment for June, giving me the impression it was all going to get better.  I now … Continue reading Is it ok?

The Google Cycle

What is it about the New Year that gets you looking into new paths and options?  The promise of a simple date change bringing new possibilities, fresh pathways and better results? I woke this morning with a really sore neck.  It's been like this for about a month now I think.  I've been ignoring it, assuming … Continue reading The Google Cycle
