I feel less interest in the things that used to interest me... the big clincher on this is that I have no desire to have our annual German Christmas party, extremely strange for me.
My eyes have been dry and scratchy
I have some heart palpitations, even though I take potassium for my mitral valve prolapse
If I don't eat, I feel shaky, as if I had low blood sugar, but my blood sugar is fine
I want to talk less, dislike talking on the phone, (that is not normal for me)
I have not ran in months, too worn out feeling, I love to run so this is strange
I cannot loose weight no matter how hard I try
I want to eat more sweets and breads.
I am a bit grouchy, (no comments)
I feel a bit old, achy kind of old
Caffeine was a friend of mine as it got me going for a few hours.
I have not moved the furniture around in the living room for months ! A sure sign that something was amiss.
The list has been forming for a good six months...making me feel a bit concerned. I have been not the normal me. No one has said anything to me, but you know how you know yourself well and I knew something was not right. I heard about Oprah's ordeal of late with her health and some of what she said fit my health concerns.
So, a test and sure enough, my thyroid is off. It was a great relief to know that how I was feeling was not just old age creeping up on me. Today was my first day taking a thyroid pill, all natural, none of this synthetic stuff for me thank you. And honestly I feel better already. This could be from just knowing what the problem is and knowing it can be turned around, but honestly it feels like the pill is helping already.
For 6 months at least I have been feeling so weary, thinking it was all due to the past years stresses, I just thought time and rest would put me back on my feet. Now I know that my thyroid just rebelled from the stresses and to peri-menopause .
Pay attention to the signs your body gives you, listen to what its trying to tell you !
