Got some news, and now the waiting begins again...

See that picture^^^^^^^, well I am sick to death of this little gland running my life. My thyroid levels are completely messed up, and causing me all kinds of troubles, I am 75mg away from the highest dose of medication that can be given for hypothyroidism, and he (the doc) told me that my efforts for trying to control my diabetes is in vain, that no matter how good and sugar free my diet is, it will not help until I can get my thyroid under control again. I have had this disease since I was 12 years old, next month I will be 31!! I have never seen a specialist for it, was just placed on medication and told to get checked every so often.
So now I am waiting for a call with an appointment with a specialist, I am hoping this won't take much longer.

I finally have my *lady stuff* since Feb. and I tell you I am paying the price for not having it for so long, and the thyroid problem I have, causes that too. I am in so much pain today, there won't be much housework done here today. I am just making a few quilled flowers to distract me, and watching a movie on the computer.
There are a few blog hops going on right now, I want to take part and do them, but I just don't have the brain strength to do them. I am drained, and my mind is racing trying not to think of the "what ifs" and the bad *C* word, which was mentioned by the doc, that he wants to check for.
I am so messed up today, I need some good distractions.
Thank you ladies for the lovely comments, I appreciate everyone of them, and everyone of you. :)
Hope you all have a great day.

I am so sorry Melissa. :( I hope the specialist can find out how to help alleviate your pain. I find crafting helps me get my mind off of everything (even cleaning the house) hehe. I hope you feel better soon.

The news is better than no news and having to wonder. Hang in there!! Being creative helps distract me from the things that stress me out - hence the inspiration journal I've been working on. That is something that allows me to just create and it doesn't have to be perfect. Hugs to you girlie... :o)

Hi! I too have hyperthyroidism, I was just diagnosed with it...and next month I am going to see an Endocronoligst...I have been so stressed over the situation and like you, I wonder how one lil organ can be such a BIG mess...I am very scared, and my doctor told me that stress was a major try as he put it "stressfree"...hmmm that's a lil hard being that we are a family of 8...YIKES who can be "stressfree"? I am now a follower and hope that I can stop by to ask some questions on all this with you? TFS! :)
