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
It's that annoying time of the year when the days are getting longer, the sun is rising earlier and I'm waking up at ridiculous times again. We should be rejoicing as spring comes but this winter is really hanging on and being a pain in the butt. This time last year we were well into … Continue reading Hey! Fever…
In a recent spate of spring cleaning, or more accurately 'any-season minimising' the amount of stuff I have, I opened a box that I had assumed contained baby clothes. I knew I'd had trouble with the idea of throwing away my daughters clothes from her first year. As she's grown the clothes have become less important but … Continue reading Letting the thoughts out of the box
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
I just want to sleep. I feel like I want it most of the time. I don't want to do my work. I'd love to stay in bed and read a book and somehow 'catch up' with that sleep that it feels like I need so badly. A few months ago I felt so bad all the time … Continue reading Sleep
