still losing but coping

Friday, January 25, 2013

Well, my endocrine has become very aggressive and that is ok with me. I am so short of breath. I have drastically cut my carbs trying to control these sugars. Man am I ever carb sensitive. When did that happen?? Probably at the same time my pancreas took a nosedive. I guess I could always do Atkins for a while. It definitely can't hurt me any more than I am already hurt. The alpha lipoic acid is kicking in on my nerve pain and helping reduce it enough for me to cope with it now. YEA! I will take every blessing at this point.

I appreciate all the support. I have never found anyone else who had no working endocrine systems so it is hard to tell if this is normal for what is wrong with me. The T3 the doc started is working. I feel a little tiny bit more energy. Of course, my body temp still won't go above 97 so I would venture a guess that my metabolism isn't going to turn back on. I just need to keep helping it where I can.

I am taking my dear hubby in for a knee replacement next month. Can't have 2 of us not functioning. He is getting a very small taste of what it is like to be in pain all the time and I must say he has become much more sympathetic. He has always been there for me, but I had the feeling lately, he was getting worn out trying to deal with everything I am going through, so this should keep his mind on himself for a little while. LOL! Gotta love him.

Well, I am going to keep hanging in there no matter what. I wish someone would pull Social Security Disabilities butt out of there &^*^ so my stuff will go through. Some idiot there actually thought you could fake endocrine failure. Give me a break. I have 52 pounds of medical records in just the past few years and they just don't get it. I guess I need to buy them a coloring book and some crayons. It is more their level.

    It sounds like you are going through some very rough times right now. I don't know what you are experiencing but I do sympathize. I hope the paperwork will go through quickly re Social Security Disabilities.

    I have thyroid problems and I am never warm but I don't have any pain and for that I am very grateful.

    Also I hope your husband does okay in surgery and is able to recover quickly. I'm sure he will understand more fully about what you are experiencing after that surgery.

    I just hope you have some of your problems allievated today and you can enjoy sparking for awhile. emoticon
