T4 on the down low...

Why oh why did my Doc decide to schedule a Thyroid Scan for January?! Now I am facing the Holidays without any supplemental thyroid hormones save for some T3 which I'm afraid to take too much of due to side sweating and tachycardia...ugh. I have been off the T4 for a week and half and I already feel like someone has beat me about the arms and legs with a rubber hose. Saturday was a total waste...I slept in until 9:30am, got up, drank coffee, fed the dogs, took them out, then took a NAP UNTIL 1pm. WHAT?! Then I was cranky and DH convinced me we needed to get out, so he drove me to dinner and to see Javi. We had a good time but I slept all the way home.

I know it is not Lacubrious at all to be complaining on a blog like this, but it's my blog and I can do what I want! Oh oh, here comes the irritability! Anyhow, I am feeling down but I only have 4 more weeks to go and then I can get back on track with my meds and hopefully the scan will show everything is normal. In the meantime, God help those who have to deal with me. I am using as much restraint as possible to avoid ripping you a new one if you annoy me the least little bit, but the process really exhausts me. Hopefully my Friday's off of work will help....a little anyway.

Sorry to hear that you are feeling down. The holidays can have a depressing effect some times, but add in the additional stress of the meds and I am sure it is wearing on you.

My professional advise is to curl up on the couch, and insert the following in your DVD player:
*It's A Wonderful Life,
* Holiday Inn,
*Miracle On 34th Street (Original Only)
*Christmas Story (Don't shoot your eye out),
*Young Frankenstein (I Know it's not a Christmas show but you will laugh)
