W00T, two posts this week. I am on a roll, even if I missed yesterday and therefore can’t do a blog every day in September thing. (I’m off the hook. *phew*)
I spent the past couple days sleeping more than twelve hours a day and feeling extremely listless and not having the mental or physical energy to do anything except watch TV. Even reading was a strain. I wasn’t depressed or anything, or sick, but it felt reminiscent of the time about ten years ago when it turned out I had hypothyroidism. I’ve always regretted taking two freaking years to realize there was a problem and actually doing anything about it, so I was proud of myself for admitting right away, “Hey, that’s not right!” and calling up my endocrinologist. It took less than a five minute conversation on the phone with someone from her office for us to realize the pharmacy was supposed to give me two prescriptions, and they’d only filled one. I thought since it was a custom pharmacy where they mix things up for you that that must have meant both meds I needed were in one pill. I was suspicious, but… I didn’t know. And I felt good on the meds I had, at least up until a few days ago when I totally crashed.
So now I’m back on both T3 and T4 and feeling tons better. I seriously can’t believe how I lived like that for two years back in the day. I can look back all I want and think, “Wow, I know things were tough back in late high school and early college, what with my undiagnosed thyroid problem, but I still should have overcome that somehow and done more with myself!” But, uh, after the past couple days, I’m surprised I managed to go to school at all back then.
Right now would have been horrible timing, too, since like I mentioned last time, I’m studying like mad for the GRE, and I have a writing sample to turn in soon, and my own books to work on, and school coming up.
