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!
Yep...yep...yep…all it takes is what I consider a little good news! Keep on keeping on!
Bright blessings and lots of love,
