Everything came back normal so far. In a way I am happy, but I am frustrated at the same time.
I know numbers don't always paint the whole picture but I am happy when everything comes back normal because it shows the doctors that I must be doing something right. In other words, I am not lying to them about my eating and exercise habits.
On another note, I get frustrated when everything comes back normal because it's confusing and the frustration builds up and then you get angry and then you calm down and try to stay positive as long as possible. The routine goes a little something like this:
Take thyroid pill every morning, eat right, exercise. Be patient. Weigh in. Scale stays the same or goes up. Maybe if I cut down on this or that, it will help. It doesn't help. Continue the process and hope that in time, the scale will budge. It doesn't. The frustration begins and then it builds up and turns into anger and disappointment. You are putting in the work so you feel like you deserve some results.
Just a note: I take my thyroid pills exactly as instructed, I change up my exercise routines and all of those obvious things. Why do I have a strange feeling that someone is going to list something obvious that I don't have listed here?
I don't feel too frustrated today. I am just wondering if there is something I am missing.
My appointment is on Tuesday and I am trying to think of anything I want to ask the doctor but I don't know what else to ask yet. I am sure something will pop into my mind soon.
I don't know all the tests the doctor ordered so I don't know if I am waiting on anything else or that's it.
I hope everyone is having a good day.
If you aren't, maybe the picture will cheer you up. :)
