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.

    Hi Smex, I don't think it does-I have been waiting for surgery to remove it since Christmas-my thyroid has slowly been going more and more haywire for the past two years.

    I will be relieved when its done in the beginning of June.

    My husband has a thyroid problem too, but his seems to be under control with his medication. Thank God! Take care of yourself and may you feel better soon! emoticon

    You are doing great. Having a thyroid problem isn't easy as it fluctuates so much.
    Do you think it might have something to do with your weight loss? If so then things will adjust. Just go with the flow.
    Lots of emoticon emoticon
