I had my routine blood work done last week and the results were a bit abnormal. The follow up blood check showed that I am suffering from what is called parathyroid disease and possibly hyperthyroidism. These are two separate glands but they both seem to be malfunctioning at the same time.
I have some follow-up scans to be done and I have to see a specialist but my research tells me that these are manageable diseases and depending on scan results, I may be heading for surgery.
I'm almost relieved to have something to explain my symptoms. I'm not just tired and have brain fog because I'm "lazy", I actually have a medical problem. I think I can move forward from here with this information.
I've decided to go to Floater Status for the remainder of the BLC24 so that I can focus on my nutrition and find an exercise routine that I can manage while getting all these tests done and resting when I need to rest.
I have to remember to work on my health. I need to do this so that I can help those around me. I'm a giver and a caretaker but I need some energy to give to and care for others.
