The endocrinologist said that my blood sugar was fine. YAY! BUT…my thyroid isn’t working properly, just as we predicted. So, I now have to take a pill, for what may be the rest of my life.
While it could be worse and at least I don’t have to make drastic changes to my lifestyle like I would with diabetes (well, not that drastic since we did adopt most of the things I had to do already)…now I just feel old. I feel old because I am on my first “maintenance drug” and I am not even 33 yet.
BUT..on the plus side this should help me with a lot of my ills. I hope so…I am sick of feeling like shit and having no energy. She said a week I should to see some improvement…in 8 weeks I have to go back and be tested to see if they need to up my dosage or if I am good.
We will see…
