rough stuff

Well I was finally getting things on the right track, got my homesickness under control, we moved, things have been going well. I've been working my butt off at the gym, unfortunately not literally. Come to find out something is wrong with me.... again.... My thyroid numbers are high which means my thyroid is not working enough ( high numbers = low thyroid, go figure) None the less I have been gaining weight and am now more than I weigh before I started. I went to the ob/gyn doctor and I now have to see an endocronologist, and a dietician. The endocronologist for both my thyroid and another syndrome that I've had since I was 14 PCOS which only shows it's face when gaining weight. Despite everything I am doing just that. So my ob/gyn says no having babies for atleast 6 months to a year until they figure what is going on with my thyroid, I have started medication for it and in about a month they will do more blood work. Today I had lots and lots of bloodwork done as I'm having some other problems that well you all might not want all of the details to. Regardless it's been enough, although probably not as bad as you think. I've started to log everything I eat, drink, do, including medication, and the times of everything. As of now I'm in limbo, waiting for the endocrinologist who may or may not send me his own dietician or going to another through the hospital. awaiting my recent blood work, and looking forward to more (well not really but you know.) all in all that is what's going on around here. Otherwise Kevin is still pretty steady with NWTHS and we finally got to go get a movie and sack out a little tonight! :) oohh and I got new glasses today, pictures later promise!

Time to watch the movie hear from ya soon! :)

Awe, Heck, Shelly. I'm sorry. Hang in there. Very cliche' but this too, shall pass. It could be worse, and its not the end of the world... you know all that stuff... But, all in all, its true. Get the testing, get your body back where its supposed to be, (all those numbers that are giving you such a hard time!) and, keep on working out. Don't loose the rhythm that you've worked so hard to get yourself into. Not only is it good for your body, but its good for your mind. It will help with all the stress.

Everything will be fine. Hang in there and keep us posted.
