Hi! Thanks for joining me for some coffee today. Would you like a muffin? It’s one of these but with cinnamon chips.
What’s in your cup?
I’m pleased there is still chocolate donut coffee at work. Sometimes there isn’t and those can be sad days.
I have some tentatively good news to report. Last week I went to my docs to see if my thyroid meds needed to be adjusted because I just was feeling so mentally terrible, my hair was falling out again, my skin was a mess again, and my sleep was all screwed up. (More than normal.) Yes, I’ve been stressed out, but it felt like more.
My doctor is wonderful and knows that ball of anxiety one trip and fall from going off the cliff isn’t actually ME. She looked at my labs from last fall and asked if I brought up some of the concerns with the person I saw while she was on maternity leave. I told her I had and she got visibly annoyed. Turns out my thyroid meds should have been adjusted then.
She adjusted them to start the next day and knock on wood, each day, I’m feeling more and more like myself. She also ran more labs to see if they will need to be adjusted further. Now if my hair would grow back, that’d be great.
(It’s not just that simple, but I have a game plan for the other stuff like weight gain and blood pressure. Including obeying her order to get back to the mat and treadmill.)
In a bit of sad news, I said goodbye to my swim team this week. I’m finding it necessary to cut back on things; stepping back for my health and sanity. (Also the session was over, I didn’t just leave in the middle.) I’m keeping certain lessons because I adore the kiddos and the classes I am teaching have the sweetest kids you’ve ever met.
If this is my last session doing more than filling in and teaching private lessons, it’ll be a good one to go out on.
I’m not sure what I’ll do with my extra “free” time. But I’m sure I’ll find something…like yoga, crafting, baking, get the house ready to sell, etc. Who knows?
What are you up to?
