So Ya Thinking I Quit?

Yeah.. so are ya thinking I quit blogging? Well right now it looks that way. So much to say.. yet so much probably not interesting enough to put on a blog. Let me see.. where do I start? It has been one month since I last posted.

I have mentioned before about the problems I have had with my health. These continue.. in fact.. have escalated. It is not that I am in PAIN, but rather extreme discomfort. I had none of these symptoms until I switched from Armour thyroid to Synthroid thyroid. I think I have posted that my lab results continue to show that I am not getting enough thyroid hormone. But this is a process.. you start out low and gradually increase... So here I am 6 months later, and I have continued to decline- exercise? P90X? Are you kidding? My walking has even stopped. I can get my feelings hurt at the drop of a hat; I am out of energy; I get short-winded, I have joint pain, muscle aches, depression, axiousness, chest and back pain, and that terrible, terrible choking feeling. So today after being awake until 3:00 a.m., I took 1/2 of a Xanax.. and yes, I went to sleep. And this morning.. still feeling that choking pain.. I took another 1/2 Xanax. Well listen.. people that know me well, they know that I do not even take Advil unless I have an excruciating headache which might occur every two months. Taking pills is the last thing I do. So I am feeling somewhat better today. Of course all I have eaten is a few crackers. The doctor gave me Nexium a few weeks ago. After taking it for two weeks, I really cannot tell the difference. I emailed my doctor and asked if I can be switched back to the Armour, but ONLY should armour become unavailable again, I do not want to go through 6 months of this.

I hear that riding a bicycle can make even old people feel better. It will help you, too. You may enjoy this blog.
