Living Spherically Once Again, With Lots of Energy




With my restored vigor, along with having company for two weeks, I was simply too busy to write !
Its strange to me that since taking the thyroid medication I can now see that for about 2 years I was just crawling at a snails pace through life, at least for me, a snails pace.
I have been playing tennis, riding my new bicycle, up with the sun each and every day. My mind has been racing with new projects for the house...with plans to have each and every room totally renovated by the end of 5 years. Along with plans to change the way we are living our life, making it more about making sure we don't reach old age full of regrets for the things we did NOT do.
Life is once again exciting to me. Amazing what a slowed down thyroid can do to you, taking away your enthusiasm and robbing you of a zest for living fully.
The house has been cleaned from top to bottom, crafts tossed away that have been sitting around waiting to be done for longer than I like to admit to. I have been shopping nearly every day for things for the two rooms we are redecorating this year. A glamorous chic look for our second bathroom which I use more than the main bathroom. Black and white, full of contrast but feeling just right. The guest room is being turned into a room of feminine pink roses and fine linens. Detailed mouldings and french antiques. Things that please my eye and bring me visual pleasure and comfort for our overnight quests.
Our life remains simple, uncomplicated and yet more full than it has been in years.
More together time for Emery and I....bike riding in the morning together, sipping wine in the evening on our porch, time for enjoying long conversations. And of course, playing in the mud with Mei-Ling : )
Life remains, good !

Thank you all for your emails of concern in my period of absence !

Patty, I just started reading your blog. I can so very much relate to your thyroid condition as I have the same problem. I see a holistic MD who put me on a natural treatment and what a difference it made! I'm glad you've got your energy back and look forward to reading future blog posts.

I have struggled with extreme tiredness and total lack of energy for several years now. My doctor keeps checking my thyroid but even though the numbers keep dropping each time, they are still within the *normal range*. I so wish we had a naturopath or someone similar in this area who could prescribe some type of treatment. There are so many things I want to do but simply do not have the energy to pursue.

I'm so glad you were able to discover the problem and get the help you need.

Deanna, take your temp first thing in the morning,before getting out of bed and if its low, there is a good chance you have a low functioning thyroid, despite blood test results.
There are a few good natural products that you might try that have naturaly thyroid in it but in low doeses. Also you can use kelp to help the adrenals.

I need to get a new thermometer (don't trust the one I've got for accuracy) and do that. I suspect it will be low. I'm usually cold when other people are warm. David says my skin feels cool to the touch to him. Can you share the names of the products you recommend?
