I saw the doctor on Tuesday and apparently there was an error on my thyroid test and I do indeed have hypothyroidism. Bah! This has brought about some clarity to symptoms I have had over the past several years - including my mental clarity and sometimes my vision is a little bit "wobbly". Not to mention that my metabolism has been a lot slower and I am always exhausted. Just figured it was about getting older and perhaps from having major abdominal surgery about 8 years ago. But perhaps it was thyroid related. We shall see.
So the dr started me on Synthroid. Today I was SO angry and full of rage. NICE mood swings, lol. And then I had my very first HOT FLASH!
I also felt anxious and impatient. So it was a pretty rough day!
On a good note - I lost 10 pounds since starting water aerobics! Huzzah!
Eating has still be iffy. Good days and bad.
My 43rd birthday is this Sunday and I figure that is a good milestone to really dig in and work on getting healthier.
Have a great weekend!
