But the Weight IS Coming Off!

Monday, February 03, 2014      5 comments

Seems like merely discontinuing my methimazole (at doctor's request) for 3 days resulted in my dropping over 4 pounds since Thursday. I don't know exactly what to attribute the reduced appetite to, since the doc says methimazole shouldn't have ... Read more

And the Hits Just Keep on Coming...

Saturday, February 01, 2014      4 comments

I'm just all over the place right now. Still stewing about my endo leaving me over-medicated long enough to throw me from hyper to hypo, thyroid-wise. Does she have any idea how hard it was to get those 15 pounds off that came back with a veng... Read more

My Gut Was Right!

Tuesday, January 28, 2014      4 comments

But apparently I did not go far enough by halving my methimazole dose back to what was originally prescribed for me. It was raised after the first set of labs after I got out of the hospital. I've been sleepy much of the time and weight has be... Read more

Like ALL the time! And weight is piling on even though I try to eat reasonably. Right now I'm waiting to go have a fasting blood draw so the endocrinologist can know where I stand for our appt. next week. I don't know why I have to be fasting... Read more

They Sold the Farm!

Thursday, December 26, 2013      5 comments

Or at least it's under contract. The only stumbling block will be if they can't find a way to permit my former apartment after the fact. The buyers definitely want to be able to use all of it. Just when we thought nothing would happen until a... Read more

My Head Feels...Not Good!

Monday, December 09, 2013      3 comments

Wow, it's been almost a month since I've written anything. Where does the time go? Had a great time on the cruise and especially enjoyed all the trivia. The ships now have pubs for adult trivia (because they give away alcohol to the winners!)... Read more

Here I am, still at the farm and I woke up with severe allergy symptoms. Now, the dust in the apartment has been getting to me a bit, but this is way more intrusive. Patches did deign to sleep at the foot of my bed last night, and I wonder if ... Read more

Need to Take a Breath...

Wednesday, November 13, 2013      6 comments

The movers came early yesterday morning, and we got all my furniture and as many boxes as I had packed moved to my townhouse. I'm not even sure I have any clean clothes to put on until I go back to the townhouse and collect stuff from my drawe... Read more

Making Progress...

Wednesday, November 06, 2013      6 comments

...Nah, not with all that diet-and-exercise stuff that everyone is so concerned about. In fact, I'm a bit up in weight right now and I think I can attribute that to my roller coaster hormone ride thanks to my thyroid's going crazy. Seems to be... Read more

The Trivia Dilemma

Wednesday, October 23, 2013      4 comments

Well, things were going along nicely, with my being able to play twice a week at least lately, since I'd do one might with my old team and one with Guy and his friend Wayne and Wayne's girlfriend. The fact that part of my old team played someti... Read more

Long Time...

Tuesday, October 22, 2013      5 comments

...but here I am! I've been freaking out about all the changes around here and just mot feeling like posting much of anything. I'm here amidst everything I own, trying to figure out what to pack and what to dispose of and just how to go about... Read more

I Forgot to Mention...

...that John and Alison bought the house. Yes, even though the farm just hit MLS yesterday, they didn't want to take a chance on losing the house, since it's apparently a great deal for prestigious Preston, and close enough to the swimming and ... Read more

Should I Exercise Now?

Friday, August 30, 2013      6 comments

I feel well after my recent difficulties, but I find exertion quite hard, like walking up the stairs or even a slope. It leaves me somewhat breathless. I'm thinking of doing some gentle yoga, but even that has left me shaky and sweating like c... Read more

I'm Out!

Tuesday, August 27, 2013      11 comments

A little tired, but feeling pretty well. Had the iodine uptake results and the thyroid scan. Gonna go back next week and get copies of all the tests, etc. I did have a nodule on the thyroid, and it was "hot", but didn't seem to be the source ... Read more

Mystery Solved?

Sunday, August 25, 2013      9 comments

It's looking like my thyroid may be the culprit. Waiting on results of the free T-3, but other labs are way off. Graves' would explain things like my dry eyes, thin hair and crappy nails, as well as the sweating. And of course the heart symp... Read more
