Still fighting the flare


I tell ya, I’m tired

So I went to the doctor today. She nodded sympathetically, took blood, said it was “probably my thyroid” and wants me to get all the maintenance  tests done I haven’t been able to get done because I haven’t had insurance — mammogram, &c.

I don’t recall making a follow up appointment. I guess that comes when the tests come back? I dunno.  It seemed so anticlimactic after waiting over a month to be seen. I really dislike having to go to the doctor.  But they don’t just hand the medications I need out to just anyone, you’ve gotta have a doctor to prescribe them. So, I put up with their shenanigans so I can get medicated, and sometimes they’re actually helpful… I mean, this one seemed nice, if in a hurry.  I’ll give her a shot and see what happens.

That kind of tired

I’m still tired. Not that I expected her to fix that or anything. But I’d hoped it would pass by now. I keep falling asleep all day, that’s how tired I am. That’s been going on for a few days now. It’s freaking annoying. I fell asleep in the doctor’s office while talking to the doctor, that’s how tired I am. I think she got the point. Not that I did it on purpose. I’ve even fallen asleep playing Skyrim. I know! o_O

Oh, and to top it all off, I tried to put some jeans on today — jeans that used to be loose not even a month or so ago and they barely fit. I stepped on the scales and found out that I’ve gained 20 pounds in the last two months since I quit Diet Coke. So there’s a plus.  Not.


That’s me!

If I weren’t so tired, I’d be mad about that.  No wonder my back has been hurting so much lately, not to mention my knees. I’m carrying around so much extra weight so suddenly. So. Freaking. Annoying.  I can’t deal with this BS. My body needs to straighten up and fly right or I’m going to start doing something real drastic… like… like… colonoscopies or something. I dunno. Whatever it is, it won’t be pleasant. Ha!

Anyway, I wanted y’all to know that I’m not ignoring your comments and likes and I’m totally reading your blogs. It’s just really a lot of effort do to pretty much anything right now. Like, breathing. Breathing is hard. All whistles and wheezes and stuff. I get little bursts of energy and then they’re gone. Gone like they never happened. I’m totally not ignoring you. I’m just… tired.

  1. I’ve been flaring, unflaring, then flaring in short cycles all summer. I’ve got drugs that help, though they help more sometimes than others. I can go from having a good day to being a train wreck in a blink and I have no idea why. I hope you feel better very soon.
