Where I've Been!

Saturday, August 2, 2014

Hey everyone! It seems like a while since I've posted. I've really missed everyone and hope y'all are doing well! I've had a couple people ask where I've been and hoping that I'm ok. Thank you for asking, and I'm fine. I had a little medical issue going on, nothing major but unnerving none the less.

I have had thyroid issues for about 6 yrs. now, and 3 years ago had RAI or radio active iodine to basically make my thyroid stop functioning so it could be controlled with medication. Since they could never regulate it. I've had a pretty easy time with it, until recently. I noticed that I was more fatigued than usual, freezing cold at an otherwise normal temp. I was noticing more hair in the shower when I would wash it. All classic symptoms of hypothyroidism.

Then a couple of weeks ago I started having crazy, scary heart palpitations that landed me in the ER one night. So to make a long story short, my thyroid is way, way out of whack! It should be no higher than a 3.0 and mine was at 10.6! Which really makes you feel crappy and can cause the palpitations.

So my endocrinologist has adjusted my meds. I've seen my cardiologist and he assures me that I'm fine. Just random PVC'S. But I have to wear a 24hr. monitor this week. That will be fun! And If any of you have thyroid problems you know it takes a while for your meds to kick in. Bummer! 

So I'll be back later this week! Back to what I love and that's talking with you all and discussing what I love to talk about…Decorating!

It always does my heart good!

Take care!
