I figure I have another month to get the starter going and find the energy to begin baking. I'm happy.
In other news I had all my labs run on the first. The doctor called with lab results today. OK she CALLED yesterday, but when I called back the front desk put me on hold. Five minutes into that routine I realized if I hung up she would call me back when she was available and I wouldn't have to spend another 40 minutes on hold to talk to the front desk to leave her a message. ::snort:: My time counts too. She called back this a.m.
My fear was all the labs would be normal and I would be told this is middle age. BUT I also KNOW Hashimotos and suspected my numbers were high again. I feel best when the T4 is 1 - 1.5. When we left Japan the T4 was 2.25. Now it's 3.7. Even conservative docs begin raising meds at 4. I have no energy. I push for a couple of hours and then must sleep. I have trouble with short term memory. My skin is flaking. My nails have split. I've gained some weight. My hair is falling out....and so they upped my Synthroid again. Within a couple of weeks these symptoms should go away. Well.....the weight gain will stop but loss won't be automatic - everything else usually reverts like magic. ::snort::
In the past two months it was tough to embrace the perimeters of freedom which Jesus led me to. I felt crummy. I was gaining weight. What was the point? Obedience. Freedom from addictions. I'm happy I maintained as all my other labs are great....I'm on a good course with all but the thyroid..and if I HAD said forget it with this nutritarian lifestyle, I would be in a much worse spot in several areas.
I'm so thankful I don't have to find the energy to find wheat berries, bake and start a starter. I'll rest until I feel more energetic.
Living all of life before the face of God...
