so three weeks ago i went to the doctor for something unrelated and they did some blood work and found that i have hypothyroidism, which explains most of my symptoms that i’ve been having lately (fatigue, unable to lose weight, feeling generally “yucky”) and have began me on meds to help regulate it. they said it would take up to a few months to get the meds regulated and when i am regulated, i would feel like a new woman and they pounds that i’ve been so desparately trying to loose (all my healthy eating has lowered my already low chlorestoral numbers) should begin to drop off!!! on the upside, the last 3 times i’ve been at the doctors office my blood pressure has been 100/65, 80/55 & 100/65 so those are some good numbers and doc has had to reduce my blood pressure meds down to almost nothing!!! but with this hypothyroidism, all my meds have been readjusted….my blood pressure, my anxiety…ugh….
additionally, after a whirlwind trip to New Orleans, LA (that’s another whole blog post!)…doc found out that i now have asthma! so now i have two inhalers to have at all times along with all my other meds….
while i’m happy to be feeling better and on the road to a healthy lifestyle, getting old sucks!!!
