life is a circle

Thursday, June 06, 2013

always knew that the gestational diabetes thing could come back to bite, and menopause is a fact of life, but the thyroid was a bit of a surprise, even though it runs in my family. my father's was gone, but had had a couple checks, and all okay. it wasn't till about 2 or so years ago that i realized something was going on, but able to write it off as age, smoker, then ex-smoker, wife to a husband with heart condition, and then seemed like i was going off the deep end. guess should be lucky the thyroid levels showed up as way abnormal...might have been written off to weight or age. glucose is it's always been at times it has been an issue, but rapidly approaching because the doses of synthroid haven't been controlled. feel like i've been walking thru the shallows, aching, bone, dog tired for so long. and, where weight watchers type diets always used to work, now need to look at low carbohydrate? it's definitely something else to learn. have a full kitchen because we went grocery shopping before this week's appt., and have a glucose test next month. plan is now to eat as well as we can...portion control is most important, and once the kitchen is ready to restock, and the glucose test done...time to get far more serious. have done it before, can do it again. right? emoticon
