Been away for a while but still working on my goals

Saturday, October 30, 2010

Last week was a blur because my 94 year old mother passed away. It was expected in that she had decling health issues and there was a problem during the previous two weeks but she's not suffering now; got to live & die on her own terms so I am doing okay.

I went to the doctor on Monday and he is pleased that since I last saw him I lost 15 pounds (I've lost 20 since starting over with SP) and have kept it off. He has adjusted my meds for thyroid again and is very sympathetic that the insomnia is still my biggest problem. However, my other numbers look good so we are going in the right direction and already the new dosage of melatonin and taking it sublingually is helping with the sleep. At least I can go back to sleep again consistently. emoticon

Am looking forward to getting active again on the forums, and just began a Facebook account, too. Hope to hear back from some of you.

    So sorry about the loss of your beloved Mother. That's a hard one.

    Glad your check up went well! The only thing I hate about thyroid med adjustment (I had to have mine adjusted, too, as I've lost weight AND the weather gets colder) is my hair is ver unhappy. At least the loss has FINALLY slowed down now.

    Anyway, sorry for your loss and glad you're doing better.
