I can't believe it's been over a month since I last posted!!!  Where does time go?

We've been making some home improvements and between that & everything else I've been to tired to type or even think about typing. 

I think the last time I posted I had said I was going to the doctor .... he did increase my meds.  And ...some days I have more energy and then I don't.  I can't figure it out to save my life!!!  I think the key is I can't over do it.  Which aggravates me to no end!!! I'm a worker  .. a doer ...and to have limits is so frustrating!!

My mind or my brain ... feels younger ...but this body is not co-operating.  My sister and I were talking about Dolly Parton bringing a theme park back to Nashville and I was sooooo excited.  It was like they were bringing Opryland back (I loved it so much I had season tickets every year ...and not just for the rides ..the entertainment was great!!).

And then .... Kim (my sister ) ruined it and said "Angie, you'll be 50 when they open it .... are you going to want to ride those rides at 50" ... like I said my mind feels much younger ... but my body does not.

Dave reminded me the other day that plenty of people have thyroid issues and live regular lives.  I look forward to that day.  I went to a furniture store to find a bean bag and I had to walk from one end to another multiple times ... and all of a sudden I got so tired I just started crying.  I was thinking how do I get out of this store .... walk across the parking lot and also drive home.  It's like someone sucked the life right out of me!!!  I'm happy to say I made it home safely :)

Oh well, I'm starting a new diet ..... tomorrow is the day.   I'm going to document (blog) the whole thing ...but...I'm not posting it until after the first 30 days. 

Have a Happy Easter!!!

p.s. Miss Bella will be 7 months old tomorrow ....she is such a stinker ....if you're a friend on facebook you probably saw that she got out yesterday and I could not catch her ... I was in my pjs with bed hair and it was AWFUL ..I thought I was going to die and she was going to get hit by a car.   (I know I'm tad dramatic!!)

Glad to see an update I was wondering how you were doing! I'm 57 and went on the rides at Disneyland last April - you'll be okay at 50! I have painful fibromyalgia and we walked and walked every where!

Angie I know it's tough. I have lived with thyroid problems for 25 years and all I can tell you it does get better. I can tell you that I have more energy when I walk regularly. It took me about a month to work up to it but I was walking 3 miles a day and had so much energy I couldn't sit still. Then we moved and I got out of walk. Also drink a lot of water.

Angie, it may help to carry a protein snack with you until you can hold up longer. Then again, the back and forth in the store could just have led to frustration! It would with me for sure.
Wish you all the best and a Happy Easter.

Hang in there and treat yourself well. You are worth it. Take in the positive every that surrounds you.
