Taking Care

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted and it’s partly because both Justin and I have been on vacation and I just recently found out I have hyperthyroidism. I got the news of my condition while traveling to my vacation destination. What a way to get bad news. But I took the experience as everything was happening for a reason. Before the diagnosis I could not understand why I was shaking so much, sleeping for only three hours, being irritable, and losing weight despite me eating like I haven’t eaten in years. I am so glad that I now know what’s wrong.

I have to admit I am bad at taking care of myself. After having Justin, his health was my primary goal. It really became my only concern after his autism diagnosis. I try to make my yearly appointments but time and life get the best of me. To be honest, I only go when I am sick. I only went to the doctor recently because I broke out in hives  in the middle of the night. I believed at the time it was due from the putting on some Bath and Body Works lotion. But after reading about the symptoms of hyperthyroidism online, I discovered my breaking out was due to my new condition. I really have to take care of myself. If not for me, definitely for Justin.
