|At the doc, hard to keep eyes open. |
Doc was a bit shocked, to say the least. My number hasn't been this bad in 15 years, back when I was being slowly upped to get me to a good zone, increment by increment.
So, that explains the:
1. thinning hair (especially at the crown, dang)
2. chills (teeth-chattering chills when the a/c is on 77/78 degrees and I have a blanket)
4. Sleeping 12+ hours
5. Droopy eyes/face
6. Drier skin
7. Bowel movements not as frequent as I'm used to
8. Regain and hard to get back to lowest weight, even when calories and movement are great.
Might explain the uptick in joint pain, not sure.
Okay, she only increased me in a small increment, and then rechecks in 2 months. I wish this was a much faster process. Yes...I'm impatient. I'd rather someone just inject the hormone into me and make me normal...cause I hate feeling like this, but this is how it goes. Small raise, recheck. If more needed, small raise in Rx, recheck.
It's always a slow process with this stuff, cause being HYPER is bad, too. It's not just hypo that sucks.
|Hubby making me laugh A LOT in the|
exam room; we're waiting for the Doc to show up.
So, I have to wait for my Rx to be filled (I have meds mailed to me), and then hopefully start getting sorted out. I should have asked for a "fill enough for 10 days" thing, but I'm pretty sure I still have some of my higher Rx from last year (before she reduced it in June), and it should still be good. Just gotta find it.
After the doc, we tried out some of the California Pizza Kitchen's Gluten-Free menu items. I loved the fire-roasted and stuffed ancho chile pepper (fewer than 500 calories). Really, really good. They need to make that a keeper on the menu. Waitress said everyone who'd tried it had raved. I had some of a roasted-veggie salad (smaller sized), but was full and didn't finish even half.
Then...we went to WHOLE FOODS to stock up on some goodies. Voila:
|Pomegranate and Persimmons.|
My thinning hair up top is obvious here. Sigh.
|Visiting the WHOLE BODY section.|
The jewelry and bags were temtping.
I dropped, "My birthday is coming soon" hints...
These are my baggier "mommy" jeans...
And I want my fuller hair back!
And because Allie did bring it up, why not, hubby again:
|Just had some raw, chilled coconut water,|
and it smeared my perfectly applied NARS
"Red Lizard" lipstick. Ignore my bald spot...
I'll be putting up the linky soon for the challengers. Look for that.
Thanks to all who've dropped by. Your encouragement is lovely, especially when I'm feeling not tip-top, ya know? THANKS SO VERY MUCH. and ...MUAH! <--got red lipstick on ya!
Be whole and sound and well....
