Medical appointment 101

So an appointment with my GP today showed my thyroid is functioning fine, it's some antibody of the thyroid that is super high and can cause my thryoid to become underactive.

Looks like all i heard from the shrink was "overactive" and "thyroid". So glad i got it all explained to me in lamens terms though.

So the deal is to wait 6 weeks, get more blood tests and monitor the levels. If they have changed then we action the antibodies.

And another thing.... i'm borderline anemic!?!? I have to start pumping the red meat, leafy greens and OJ. I also have to have 1 iron tablet a day.

What's another tablet right?

Count down to wine o'clock

1 & 1/2 hours till i can pop open my chilled bottle of champers! Ahhh bliss, nothing like a nice cold vino to top off another shitty week.

I was feeling so good going into my shrink appointment on Wednesday, then overactive thyroid is mentioned and i've taken a downward approach to everything.

*sigh* When will the zoloft kick in?

I would say 2010 is the year to make drastic diet/lifestyle changes. Maybe i should stop drinking (*gasp*), or at least cut it down to 1 night a week. Maybe i should start eating organic, but we don't have the money to start buying more expensive foods, being on one income is hard enough. What else can i do? I already go to the gym 4 days a week. I know.... maybe pop some more medication? *rolls eyes*

So the cognitive behaviour therapy is booked in for Jan 19th, can't wait to start changing these thoughts around in my messed up little mind at the moment.

The shrink suggested a diary

I got all excited, i was going to buy a pretty diary at Kikki and a special pen, then i remembered my last journal, 2 pages in and i was over it. So i'll blog, and hopefully more frequently. I really don't mind if i get comments or not, it's more of an outlet for me and my messed up mind at them moment.

So, lets tally the medical conditions i have.



1. Eczema
2. Asthma
3. Severe food allergies
4. Severe dust/cat/grass/hayfever allergies
5. Osteoporosis

That's a total of 11 fukt up illnesses, yay to me. I'm 27 and my list looks like it belongs to an 80 year old.

Plan of attack? Who fucking knows, i'm sick of taking pills and i'm sick of all this shit happening to me. Yes i know there are others worse off but FFS cut me some god damn slack and let me off the hook for once ok?

Am having a few wines to debrief today's new illness. Lets see how i feel in the morning?
