After caring for 100 year old mom for three weeks I was so pleased to leave her in much better shape than I found her. I was also pleased to have pruned and weeded her 1/3 acre of trees, shrubs, Japanese gardens, roses, etc., etc. I worked on that part 2-4 hours each day so a pretty good workout in the process. Still, had to wear orthopedic boot the whole time as I try to get a tendon to repair itself. But, I stayed longer than planned and couldn't get some meds I usually take each day to get me through. I ran out of my thyroid medication among other things and gained some weight, probably related. Since I had lost several pounds just before leaving while doing a detox, clean eating plan for two weeks. Couldn't eat quite as I had been and then letting my thyroid crash was a bad combination. So, here I am back where I started before the detox plan. So disappointed, but know I can get back on track. Not sure whether to double the thyroid meds for a bit until I feel more like myself or just eat well and get back on target with exercise, water and all the medications I get to take for multiple sclerosis, hypothyroidism. migraine and arthritis. I suspect I'll be back on track in another week so trying to be kind to myself as I get caught up around here and get back to my usual life and obligations. Hope everyone is having a great week!
