LOng hours in bed resting and sleeping is taking so much out of my days. I found out that my thyroid is acting up at times. Mainly hypo thyroid which is notorious for causing fatigue and knocking so much more out. Unfortunately My doctor is reluctant to start me on Synthroid because sometime in the past few years my Thyroid was normal but about half the time it wasn’t. She is afraid that if I start the medication I will need it likely for life. I am at the point where I feel my quality of life is low because it is a struggle to get things done. a struggle to just live life. I got some natural herbal supplements that may help but I am not sure. I do realize though that I have been cooking a lot with rock salt instead of regular table salt which contains iodine so at least these supplements contain Iodine. Low thyroid also cause low Iron and low B12 so I get shots for that and tablets for the iron. My doc says she will check my thyroid function in another 3 months but I have been feeling very tired more so since May. I feel like I lost the summer. Hopefully she will let me get it tested before then if I am not feeling better.
On a good note I started my Holbrook Shawl again but this time with a lace weight crochet yarn. So far it is looking very nice but I am only near the beginning.
Have a great weekend everyone
