I am hesitant to post this, because I don’t want to jinx myself. This is week 2 of taking an extra 30 micro grams of thyroid medication on M-W-F and I think I like the results. I’m going to call my doctor to get my new prescription. The last two weeks have contained some of the most positive days I remember having in a very long time. Even with the pain and the fatigue factor, I am still able to remain positive. I’ve been staying busy and been able to meet or exceed my goals. I’ve even added daily goals! I’ve had several days (last Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and yesterday) where I had some serious negativity or depression and frustration and those were days where I didn’t take the extra 30 micro grams. Today, I’ve already had to pick up my daughter from school early and had an unexpected (but very positive) visit and I’m handling it like a champ. I’m even considering going to visit someone with the kids after school. I don’t want to go into details with that, but there could be some drama, which has kept me away for the past month, but I feel like I can handle it. This is huge for me. Even though I had some negative feelings after my last doctor’s appointment, he really has helped me. No other doctor would even have touched the thyroid issue because my tests were in the “normal” range. I guess the real test will be to see how I do once I start taking the higher dose.
I had to add brain fog as a tag, because I accidentally posted this on my sewing blog and had to go copy the body and delete the post from my sewing blog. Where’s my pill for foggy brain? Maybe another cup of coffee is in order.
