During the week I finally got the OK to have more testing done on my thyroid, and my Dr also did a few other tests to check for inflammation and markers for heart problems or cancer. All of my labs came back fine. I wasn't expecting those results but I was dreading that would be the case. I am still awaiting my results for my B-12 test, but I had that done a year ago and it was fine. All of this medical junk has really robbed me of truly enjoying summer. And it's just getting really old not knowing why I feel like I'm 80. My doctor wants to see me again, I get the feeling she is starting to think I'm either a hypochondriac or that my weight is the entire issue.
Of course, I have felt a little better the past 2 days, a little more energy, better mood. I am beginning to suspect estrogen may be involved, but I give up on trying to self-diagnose. I asked my Dr about perimenopause before and she brushed it off. I think, depending on what I feel like the next few days, I will ask her to check my estrogen levels to see where I'm at. I also thought about adrenal fatigue, but I'll let the doctor decide on that.
I haven't been craving or eating junk, just don't feel like it, which has been a welcome change of events. Mostly at work, I've been too busy to even think about food, so I end up missing meals or snacks. It's not how I want it to be, just how this time of year is at my job. And, trying to train my boss in the midst of the chaos just adds another layer of chaos! Good thing we already knew each other and get along really well. He is really enthusiastic and really wants to help. I can't wait til he knows enough to do so!
My family has had some nice weekend fun. Last weekend we drove up the peninsula again, and this time we went a the way to the tip and made the impromptu decision to hop in a ferry and spend the night on an island. We ended up getting a sweet offer to rent a guest house at a farm and it turned out to be so amazingly awesome there. We got to pet horses, goats, and cats, and watch chickens run around free range. In the morning a rooster crowed to wake us and we spent a lot of time enjoying the unplugged peace of the country. I haven't seen that many stars since I was a kid!
This post really doesn't have a point, I think my brain is just fried!
