This week hasn't been a very good one. I have been stress snacking and my weight is up by 2.5 pounds - just what I needed right before a doctor's appointment where the first thing they want you to do is step on that dreaded scale!
On the way over to the doctor's office a deer jumped out of the bushes right in front of the truck, which we only picked up from the garage last Friday after some major repairs! The front on the driver's side is all bashed in :(( What a mess. The strange thing is that despite the massive damage, the deer was fine and luckily so were we, just quite shaken up and ready to cry at the damage to the truck.
The good news was that I had a great check-up and got some answers the same day! My thyroid TSH levels were in the normal range but she is going to increase my dose a little to see if that helps with some of my symptoms, like my hair shedding to where it has become rather thin. So maybe I won't go bald after all!!
Things were looking up - or so we thought... on the way home the brand new (less than a week!) windshield was hit by a rock and is chipped :( Gotta love Colorado roads - every year we have to replace a windshield... This should hold over to next summer, when we will replace it just before we head south again.
The icing on the cake was the internet quitting early evening - and this morning it has been wafting in and out. This seems to be an "in: moment - but I'll make sure to copy before I try and post it LOL
As you can imagine my stress levels are through the roof and I actually had a normal blood pressure when they checked it yesterday - not normal for me, about 20 points higher but apparently 120/75 is considered normal :) MY normal is 100/60 on a good day..
Let's hope this weekend things will settle down. The insurance guy has been over to look at the truck and next week I should have my higher dose thyroid pills :)
