So, I went to the endocrinologist the other day. I had to get blood work to make sure my gestational diabetes didn’t end up as regular diabetes. While I was there I mentioned to her that I was clicking around on the internet (I know drs hate that!) and found that I had almost EVERY symptom of hypothyrodism. I just thought they were all seperate problems…but could they be be part of a bigger picture?
Even though Dr. T had checked my thyroid while I was pregnant with Podling, she agreed to check it again. I have to admit, I am scared that she is doing to say everything is still fine…I am not fine. I am always tired, can almost never get enough sleep. My hair comes out in clumps in the shower. I am always cold…even if it is 80 degrees in the apartment…no to mention my bouts of depression and the fact that I can’t lose 1lb to save my life. Part of me wants there to be just enough variation that she can give me a little pill and it just make everything better.
So, I am waiting for the test results. I am going to see if she won’t work with me anyway even if my test comes back ok. For so long I have just lived with these things thinking they were just a part of my life…it would be so nice to be able to fix them.
