Recently diagnosed hypothyroid…but feeling better!

It’s been a while since I’ve popped in here and rambled a bit. So here I go!!!

About 5 weeks ago, I was diagnosed hypothyroid. I’ve had a few “why me” moments, and a relief moment - I’ve been having issues with certain things off and on for the last two or three years, so hypothyroidism will help explain the “why” behind some of my issues (depression, hair loss, hoarse voice, etc etc).

My doctor prescribed 50 mcg of levothyroxine about 5 weeks ago. I will say that my energy levels have improved tremendously since being prescribed the medication. I really hope it will kick in and help with my hair loss as well. I’d love to have the feeling of leaving the beauty shop with a fresh new ‘do again - I miss that.

My mom dropped into town 11 days ago, which has thrown a major kink in my diet plans. I love my mom dearly, but her in my small 1 bedroom apartment for the last 11 days has definitely tried my patience. She did leave today, so I should be able to get back on plan and back into the swing of things. In a few weeks, I’ll step on the scale and see what happens.

Feeling very positive today - wish I could feel like this every day!!! Go me!!!
