My Plate

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

My plate is full right now and not with food. I find myself sitting and pondering my next move. I was diagnosed with Hoshiemoto Hypothyroid Disease and started taking medicine for it. I felt a lot better and then had to quit taking the medicine so I could undergo an uptake test.

My life has been a roller coaster for the last month. I don't feel well, I am cranky, I have had to change my diet---gluten sensitivity as well--and I was told not to ride in the Tour of the Gila. I have a triathlon coming up and maybe I'll get to do it.

School is almost over and in the next three weeks I have a health conference, a seminar, grades, standardized testing, parents, students, wind.....etc. to deal with. Plus, my mom is not doing well, my kids are away at school, husband works out of town....and on and on and on!

The road ahead my not all be clear but there are some positive things happening as well. I have some great friends that are very supportive.

My exercise program is daily, consistent and paying off. I have lost several inches around my middle and my weight lifting is going superbly.

I got a new tattoo and summer is on the horizon. I am alive and I will get well. What more could a person ask for?

A pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Maybe a winning lottery ticket? I'll settle for a nap and a nice long bike ride.

    Hang in there. Hopefully once the test is over and the you can resume the medication you will feel better again. Because I have low thyroid, I know what it means to feel so tired you can't hardly move. I went through that before I got on medication. It's horrible. But you will get through this. You are a strong powerful woman and you will land on your feet. I'm sorry you can't ride in the Tour of the Gila and I hope you are recovered enough by your tri to be able to do it. And don't let the wind blow you away! It's really awful today!
