The Journey Continues

It's that time again! It's been 3 months since my last visit to my Endocrinologist. Last week I had my blood work done and I saw him this morning. Although I was slightly irritated that the nursing staff was off of their game and had me waiting after he had called for me twice, it was a pleasant enough visit.

He is an awesome doctor. From what I've heard most people hate him or love him. He is just fine with me. The visit was short and sweet. We always seem to spend more time talking about other stuff. Today's topic was food and both of our love for it. You guys aren't strangers to my love of food LOL.

But anywho, my Synthroid dosage STILL wasn't enough. In his words, "You're a big woman, it is just gonna take some more for you." Y'all should have seen the look on my face, and then I burst out laughing. Truth be told, in my own eyes, I'm fat as hell. He said once the dosage is at the proper amount, it will be a little bit easier to lose weight, with the proper effort of course.

How am I feeling? Much better than when I saw him last. I don't have bouts of narcolepsy any more. I still go to bed super early, but I don't think that will change as long as I have to get up before the chickens every morning. I have very achy joints still. In the past month I have been tested for Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus. Both of which came back negative (thank God). So I guess it's just a side effect of the Graves' Disease, or just regular ole arthritis in ALL MY JOINTS. Oh, I have carpal tunnel in both wrists and have weekly occupational therapy...and will eventually have surgery for them. Blah. I also can't take NSAIDs (Motrin and other anti-inflammatory medications) because of my stomach issues and Tylenol does NOTHING for my pain. So I mostly suffer through it.

So, we will see how this round of new meds go! Hopefully I will turn into a big ball of energy that spends at least 30 minutes a day on the elliptical (that is in my house) instead of closing the door every time I walk past it LOL.

Onwards and upwards! I hope you all are doing great and wish you nothing but happy days!



  1. I love the positive outlook you have! It sucks about the joint pain and I really hope it gets better. :)

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
