The story so far...

Saturday, March 02, 2013

Well, another week down and what a week it was! Let me back up a bit...Had a fabulous vacation. Seeing my old friend was the best birthday present I have had in forever! I rented a car for four days and ran around like a crazy woman, enjoying the freedom a well running car affords me. Once I returned the car, I stayed home and relaxed and spoiled myself.

On my first day off, I called my (EX) endocrinologist to see why she has not approved my refills for my thyroid medication. I got the voice mail...again... and left my name and number and a "I'm off for the next week, I'll come in and see you, just please ok a refill until then and call me back for an appointment," message. Yeeah, no phone call. left another message and nothing. By this time I am feeling the result of no thyroid and each day is getting a little worse,til by the time I am back to work, I feel like I am am coming out of my skin, I can't focus, I am not sleeping, having night mares when I do sleep, and have a VERY short temper.(Oh! not to mention that no matter how little I eat, I am gaining weight at an alarming rate....another lovely side effect of no thyroid.) I called my primary care doc (which, had I been thinking straight, I should have done a lot sooner) and left a message for her explaining what was going on and guess what, she sent in a script that evening. Wow!

So now it is a waiting game as I am basically starting all over. It takes 2-4 weeks for the meds to come to full power. In the mean time, I have been told by those nearest and dearest to me to be gentle with myself and relax. Hence the lazy weekend and possibility of a nap or two. I have so much to do and I procrastinate enough as it is. But when I want to do stuff and just can't manage, I hate it...

Okay, enough venting...okay whining! *LOL* I'm gonna be fine, I'm just frustrated after feeling so good for as long as I have now. I will be as patient as I can and do what is best for me now, so I can be the best me later.

Have a wonderful weekend and know that you are loved!

    Thank you once again for your support, my dear friend! In all fairness, it may have nothing to do with the doctor herself. It may have just been her staff, not giving her the messages. That being health is too important to put up with garbage like that! I have come too far on my journey to getting healthy!

    On a cheerier note, my grocery shopping is done, Thanks to my friend Jenna. (Oh yeah, I think my car has finally died. I will not pour more money into her, as much as I love her. She is 24 years old and has so many things wrong with her. *Pouts* I'll fiddle with her later.)

    I think today I am going to finish season 3 of "Castle," and then move on to a "Warehouse 13" marathon. I found the first three seasons on sale, so had to get them!

    I can see why your ex-doc is an ex!! Yikes! That's some set of priorities she has...

    So glad you finally are getting what you need, and that things will be on track soon. The Universe finds so many varied ways to teach us patience. We even catch on to a few of them!

    Your friends are right.
    Be kind to yourself.

    That may be the most important lesson in patience.
