Well, shoot. I blew it. Not too bad this time, really. Because of money and time I’ve just not kept up on my thyroid meds. A week here, a week there….I thought it was fine. Really….I thought I could get away with not having those two drugs any more because my latest blood work showed my thyroid was all leveled out.
I’ve been about a week without the drugs, and I think I can feel it. I haven’t been sleeping well, for one. But I am getting tired really quickly again. Like, so tired I can barely see straight let alone try to work and be a good mom. I press on, but…..it has not been easy this week. My daughter’s birthday was on Monday, along with her family night, and it was all I could do to muster then energy and enthusiasm that my heart desired for that evening because my body felt so drained.
So, I guess I better call the pharmacy and get back on those drugs. I really had hoped I could go off of them, but I might be mistaken. Those might be some drugs that I will need for a long, long time.
It’s worth it, though. If this is my thyroid again, and not just me being tired with work and life, then once it’s back where it needs to be I think I will have the energy I need in order to get things done.
Lesson learned, hand spank done, moving on…..
