Life hard... - Happy's Obsession
or what I do between bouts of Real Life
Life hard...
Well, I found out today that my TSH levels were really high, meaning that my med dose has been too low... and that's why I'm so tired.

Add to that I'm working 6 (or even 7) days per week, and then meeting with the real estate agent, the remodelling guy, and my two potential employees in the evenings to discuss if the optical is a feasible business. And that I signed up for a number of classes (5 in the next 4 weeks) in jewelry making (since they were 50% off).

And that for the next 3 weeks, I'll be driving between Silverdale, Seattle, and Olympia for work. Which are (respectively) 34, 40, and 32 miles from my house - each way, 6 days/week.

Life never gets any easier, does it? Maybe I should just continue the gypsy optometry, working for those that want time off - although I'll never be able to long-term plan with that, and there is no security... and most people don't take much time off in the winter.


*looks forward to starting new dosage of meds tomorrow, hopes it takes care of the exhaustion*

*offers kleenex; pets* Oh, I hope the meds get better and the thyroid roller coaster stops.

Pity you can't work Hawaii for the winter. No, Cuba. You can get away from everybody you know :)

And if the jewellery making gets rid of some of the eugh that you're going through, well, bless half-off sales.

It took me two years to get diagnosed with hypo-thyroidism and two more to get the levels where I feel good all the time - If I knew then what I know now I would have been much more aggressive in managing my own TSH levels - I try and keep it as low to the botttom of normal as I can without sliding over to Hyper-thyroid. I still have occasional crashes - exhaustion periods that are intense, but they only last an hour or so.

Insist on knowing your levels and managing them.

That's the best advice I can give you
