This isn't a post to whine or complain, by far the opposite. I'm doing well and I'm alive to see another beautiful day therefore I have no right to do either. I just wanted to stop by and explain why I haven't been around much.
If you've ever happened to notice, most of my blogs are published in the wee hours of the night. Most of my visiting and commenting on other's blogs happens to be done on the same timeline. Well about a month or so ago I called my Endocrinologist for a check up because I was concerned about migraines, insomnia (obviously), and my weight going back up.
I happen to be a medical experiment in a 28 yr old body.
My body is always fighting against me in one way or another. My main enemies are a pituitary tumor and an under active thyroid. They happen to work hand in hand. Migraines, insomnia, and the weight issues are all side effects I deal with on a daily basis. Luckily I have the most wonderful doctor ever and I can always tell that he's always listening to what I have to say and we work together to work out a game plan. Which we did during my appointment then and I was put on a new medicine to cut out the migraines and the insomnia. I won't look down my nose at more sleep, but I have found myself lacking the energy and time to do any blogging lately. Adjusting meds is always a fun roller coaster (said SUPER sarcastically, lol). But if it's what helps in the long run I'm all for having some relaxing me time where my only worry is whether it's too hot in the room to be covered or not.
Also, I've had at least two colds and random side effects from the new medicine.
I mentioned I have a giant distaste for roller coasters, right?
So, all in all that's where I've been. I've been reading a little here and there on Heidi Betts' "The Bite Before Christmas" and am halfway through it. But with everything going on I've just been taking thing a day, a wink, and a nod off to sleep at a time.
