Well, Christmas is over, again and, as usual, i couldn’t be more pleased, it was lovely, but i always exhausting, busy and expensive, although since we began giving quite large donations to different charities instead of some presents, it’s easier and feels so much less wasteful.
Before Christmas i gave in and went to the GP. i’ve begun to realise my hypotension and fatigue shouldn’t be as terrible nor written off as MS just MS! i’m quite well overal, but MS is an easy get out for GP’s. Previous thyroid redings, 4 years ago, were ‘normal‘ at 10, I questioned him closely and learned normal is 8 to well over 200, in that surgery’s readings. He refused to admit my thyroid is giving up, but i’m having the test again in 3 weeks. I’m sure it will be normal again and I may need to buy thyroxin, but resent the extra cost and don’t like taking meds without supervision,but need to regain strength. I’m not overweight, which works against me, i would rather be overweight than constantly exhausted. Does anyone have any advice for me?
Oh, and i really hope 2018 brings health and happiness for all CAPers, past and present!
