So I have failed myself the past few weeks…. two to be exact.
First: I lost quite a few posts on this website however fortunate that some of them had been saved… ((Remember to back up your work kids!!))
Second: I haven’t posted at all this week. – My Excuse – A Concussion… but really I could have written so the fault lay solely on my shoulders.
Not being online gave me quite a bit of time to look inward some more and find out what it is that makes me spin out of control and down the proverbial rabbit hole. I do rather feel like Alice.. as she fall watching things in her life pass her by unable to control it until that moment.. her dress flies open and she controls her downward spiral till her feet are back on the ground. I think I had my epiphany yesterday after talking with a friend.
For most of my life I have had issues with my health… one of them affects my body to its core. Hypothyroidism…. it throws off my hormones, my chemical balance, a lot of stuff really. I have NOT been taking my medication for it while looking for a full time job in fear of having to take a drug test. The pills I have are legitimately mine. When I knew I would be loosing my insurance I got as many of them as I could. However the prescription is no longer current. I am working on getting that rectified.
Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease, a disorder in which the immune system turns against the body’s own tissues. In people with Hashimoto’s, the immune system attacks the thyroid. This can lead to hypothyroidism, a condition in which the thyroid does not make enough hormones for the body’s needs.
Funny how the ONE THING I should remember I often forget. Back into the daily rotation the pills go… I need to care for me and that includes caring for ALL of me.
Due to the long half-life of levothyroxine, the peak therapeutic effect at a given dose of levothyroxine sodium may not be attained for 4-6 weeks.
Marks the calendar and starts moving forward again.
