So...for the first time ever I went to the doctor with one major complaint! I said, "Doctor, I am so tired".
I have no reason to be tired. I haven't done anything at all. Yes, I've gone to work, but my job is not a physical one. Mentally, it's very taxing but not physically. I feel aches all over. My muscles cramp often. I get short of breath once in a while and sometimes it takes great effort just to walk across the room. And why is it that I stay COLD ALL the time? It's 104 degrees outside and when I walk into a building with air conditioning I have to put a coat on!
And then there's that little issue of feeling blue, sad, down and out, when I know in my heart I have much to rejoice about. That's difficult and shameful for me to admit but I guess it's time I share it with a few of my blogger friends and anyone else that has access to the Internet (*smile*).
So, OK...forget the one complaint. I have many.
The good doctor orders a ton of lab work. Seems my thyroid is not working so well. Hypothyroidism it's called. At least he THINKS that may be the problem.
Today, when the sun comes up, I'm back to the doctor again for more test to confirm the hypothyroidism.
I covet your prayers and as always my heart and prayers to the many blogger friends whose burdens are so much greater than mine.
Blessings of peace and all that is good,
