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!
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
So I visited the new doctor (because the other was banned from prescribing Thyroid medication - see previous post) and he analysed my blood results as being 'overcooked'. Thyroxin has been reduced by a three-quarters and Eutroxsig reduced to half. So I now take 2 halves of a tablet each day and have had to buy … Continue reading Overcooked
I've received an email this morning, following a call last week, from my current doctor who has been helping me with my recovery. A short excerpt... Due to two reports from other doctors about my prescribing of thyroid hormones, AHPRA has now placed further restrictions on my practice and since last Friday, 18th November, I … Continue reading No more thyroid medication?
The introduction of Levothyroxine to my system, known as Eutroxsig here in Australia has made the biggest change to my health. I no longer feel as tired when I wake, my energy levels throughout the day are better. My mind feels sharper and the pain in both my hip and shoulder has lessened on most … Continue reading Ambition
I can spend hours searching online for answers if the mood strikes me. I fall in and out of feeling the need to search for similar stories to mine and looking for new research, concepts or thoughts. I still feel like I'm looking for what is wrong with me and expecting to find one answer … Continue reading Some lists are good.
This time is not like last year when everything tasted like metal for about a month. No-one could really pin down what the reason was but the most likely culprit was candida overgrowth. I couldn't even drink peppermint tea without a nasty metallic taste. I'm sure I could find the posts where I wrote about … Continue reading I’m struggling with food again
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
