Well, my health hour streak plan for today (and mood) got side tracked when I called the doctor and found out that the rest of my labs came back and I've got hypothyroidism. They're starting me on 50mcg of levothyroxine and will recheck me in about 6 weeks.
So I spent the rest of the hour researching alternative therapies and finding out that though not impossible, it is more difficult than I am willing to focus on at the moment. Especially when I haven't even picked up the multivitamin and vit D that the doc ordered previously. *sigh*
I guess I have to start taking meds because I do not want to have any of the complications of hypothyroidism. Drats!
Now I'm wondering how long I've had the hypothyroidism and what caused it: Hashimoto's or iodine-deficiency or something else?
Anyway, I'm gonna go make myself get busy doing laundry or paperwork and listening to music and distract myself from worrying...'cause there ain't no point in that, right?
