Juice fast day 13
Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Yesterday was a tough one-not because of cravings or anything, but because I had another thyroid storm. This time I was having some bad symptoms, bad enough that I went to the doctor. I spent the day curled in a ball in bed taking beta blockers and trying to stay calm (I get terrible anxiety and paranoia during these episodes. I got the test results this morning, and the doctor has taken me completely off my synthroid dose. If I continue having these spells before my surgery, I may have to go on thyroid blockers. Boo. I still feel quite jittery today, and I haven't slept more than two hours.
I also gained 0.4 today.... Hmmm. Hormones can kiss my butt. Hopefully as my thyroid settles, the weight (which I can only imagine is water retention) will drop again.
I would write more but I'm not feeling great, and I need rest. Perhaps tomorrow I can delve more into my feelings about being sick.
