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!
I've been writing mostly in a separate diary recently, I'm trying to pour everything out. It works sometimes to keep me writing when I don't feel like pouring it all out into the world. I've noticed I write a lot about 'I' and 'me'. Understandable I suppose but I'm trying to find new ways to … Continue reading Make hay while the sun shines
Yesterday was spent just hanging with my 5 yr old. I am often so flat these days that it just feels like the best thing to do is to stay home and find stuff to do here. She seems to enjoy it, but I worry about when she’s older, will I have kicked this problem by … Continue reading Thyroid is the word…
This week the hairdresser noticed how much thinner my hair is and showed me around the back where it's breaking away at the ends. I've been noticing it for a while now but it seems really easy to ignore things you hope will improve and not notice how long its been going on. Like my neighbour, … Continue reading Taking note of hair loss (& everything!)
The doctor has diagnosed me as hypothyroid again. I've been noticing all the symptoms individually and I'm not going to beat myself up but they're damn obvious! So I'm writing them below to remind myself and then in the future I hope I realise it sooner because the doc has upped my T3 and hopefully that will … Continue reading Ok so it’s clear now
It's not been an easy week, for some reason. I've needed long naps a couple of times ( yes I know, after mentioning I didn't need them anymore). 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
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?
It's a little bit funny...all these feelings inside... Ok so I've borrowed that from the start of an Elton John song. I've woken up early this morning (5:37am) dead tired, sore neck still - it's been almost 3 months now - and wondered to myself where to from here? Just over 2 years ago, I got … Continue reading This is a big, fat drag!
I paused last night to question myself, how it can be that I still feel like life is rushing by when I've made so many changes to it specifically designed to allay this feeling. How can the days seem so busy when I no longer work full-time? And they seemed so long when I did. For a long … Continue reading Work with it
The struggle I face mainly is with my own mind. Tasks become apparent that I need to do or even want to do and my mind immediately starts planning, preparing, scheduling and worrying. How can I fit in the shops before I get my daughter? Should I wait till she's here, no she doesn't like the shops, … Continue reading I can and I will
