Regarding the last entry...

Thursday, July 29, 2010

My apartment must be really dark compared to everyplace else! *LOL* I would have sworn my hair looked red! However, in the light of day and under office lighting, it looks light golden brown. *sighs*

In any event, I am radioactive and ready for my first scan. I am feeling better every day, and I have to wonder how much of that is due to the fact that I have a better idea of what is going on now. Yes I am still really tired, but there is a sense of hope and expectation now. The only good thing about this most recent condition is that has has kept me from gaining too much weight from the beta blocker. I have only gained three pounds which is great!

Have a wonderful day, lots of love,
Ame

It's about time!

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

I finally heard from my doctor’s office with the results of my thyroid blood work…ONLY two weeks after they took the blood. *deep sigh*

It is what I suspected and hoped for, I have hyperthyroidism. Yes, I know! This is a very strange thing to be happy about. I know that it is easier to manage and take care of my thyroid than it would be to manage and take care of a heart problem.

I am having a Thyroid Uptake and Scan this Thursday and Friday to see just exactly what is going on in there. He is putting me on an antithyroid med, which I will begin taking after my uptake and scan. He is keeping me on the beta blocker for now. *sighs* I do feel better, but dang, I am always so freakin tired. I figured I would be feeling so much better by now, and have so much more energy.

It IS going to get better! I AM going to be so much better than my old self by autumn. I got gypped out of my favorite time of year last year due to being so sick, I am NOT going miss this one! I can’t believe next week is August! I have so much to look forward to in the coming months. FAIRE…The annual party here in town where I see a group of online friends that have become family…The Star Trek Convention! Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! Wheeeeeeeeeeee! emoticon

Yep...yep...yep…all it takes is what I consider a little good news! Keep on keeping on!

Bright blessings and lots of love,
Ame

    Yay for having an actual diagnosis that can be treated - sometimes it's the unknowns that are the hardest to deal with.

    It won't be long until you start to get your energy back. The meds make all the difference.

    I am sure it must be a relief to know why you are not feeling well. Trying to eat healthy and exercise are so much more challenging when you are sick... Good luck with your diagnosis and I hope the meds help!

It's Friday Eve!

Thursday, July 22, 2010

Starting to feel better overall, must be adapting to the meds. I must say I despise some of the side effects which I will not go into. My heart rate has dropped to about 80 bpm, but I'm still having bouts of palpitations. I'm going to try and slip in a wee bit cardio to see how I do and hopefully can get some semi-serious house cleaning done. I almost feel like myself.

I'm so glad tomorrow is Friday! Life at work has been so strained for a while now. Having huge problems with my work roommate and if there was any way to do it, I would ask to be moved in a heartbeat. As if I need any more stress in my life. I am tickled pink that she is working at another office tomorrow! HUZZAH...I am so looking forward to stress-less day tomorrow. Hopefully she will be out at the other office for a few day, but I am not holding my breath. I'm just so thankful for the brief reprieve I have tomorrow! What a lovely way to start the weekend!

Happy Friday Eve my friends! May it be prelude to a wonderful weekend!

Okie Dokie...Good and not so good

Monday, July 19, 2010

Saturday night I was voted into a new faire guild! I am so excited! I can't wait to get involved and I am thrilled to have a home port to settle in! HUZZAH!!! Faire family ROCKS! emoticon

I have been researching the meds my doctor has me on and I am so not happy. The beta blocker causes weight gain. Not may...does...*sighs* Add in the fact that I cannot do any cardio at this time, I'm so not happy. Hopefully my blood work will come back today and my thyroid is the culprit! *LOL* Such is life! I will make it through all of this...with smiles and laughter!
