The Texture Of Things

A Little Love, Please

January 12th, 2011

I am in need of a “Poor baby, I’m sorry this is happening to you.” Also accepted: ((hugs)). Other forms of sympathy welcome as well.

I went to the doc to get my annual thyroid bloodwork done so I can renew my prescription, and the results came back really, really bad. Like, seriously really bad. Like, the normal range is between .5 and 1.5, and my number is over 9.

I was honest with the doc about my poor compliance over the last 4 weeks or so, and he said that even considering that, my number shouldn’t have been above a 3. So, there is a problem. He has jumped my dosage up two levels, but it will take at least 6 weeks before I’m normal.

I have no idea how I am upright all this time, but somehow I have been. Of course, now that I know this information, I just want to go to bed and stay there until spring, but (again, of course) I will soldier on. I’m just pouty about the whole thing.

And I feel like an idiot because all of my classic low thyroid symptoms have been right in front of me this whole time, yet I didn’t see them until the doc and I were on the phone. Count “cloudy-headed” in that list of symptoms, I suppose.

Bright side, of course, is that we’re on the path to correcting it, but still. *pout*

    Pobrecita. I don’t know how you’re functioning at all, much less doing all that you’re doing. I’m sorry you have this to worry about/go to doctor’s appointments about/deal with insurance company about/etc while you’re working so hard at getting the tot help and taking care of Tater and working and and and.

    Bright side is hopefully you’ll get it better soon and start to feel better soon.

    Thanks, friends. I’m trying to listen to my body and take it slow, so I took a nap today. Ha ha! It was incredible! I wish you wonderful, completely gratuitous naps in your near future!
