Brain Fog

>> 7/31/14

I keep forgetting to take my thyroid medication twice a day. I usually forget the second dose, sometimes I even forget the first dose. This is so not good.

My brain has been in a fog the last few days. It's been an unpleasant reminder of what I lived like for nine years before I found a doctor that would treat my thyroid disease the way it needed to be treated. My memory is shot, my head feels like I'm walking through a fog storm 1700 fog machine.

I even set an alarm twice a day to remind myself. The problem is if the alarm goes off and I'm not home, or in the middle of something, I forget to do it afterward.

I really need to get more disciplined.

High School Senior

>> 6/11/14

My eldest just finished her junior year. It's time to think about senior pictures, a varsity jacket, college applications, and everything else related to the last year of high school. Who aged me enough to have a senior in high school? When did that happen?

She is moving onto vet school, pre-vet first and then veterinary medicine. She and her boyfriend are talking about marriage after college (oh please, slow down). I'm googling colleges and vet schools; I'm not to google raleigh wedding photography yet.

*deep breath* for the upcoming senior year.

Thyroid Expert?

>> 4/8/14

There's a thyroid expert named Andrea Beaman I am wondering about. Has anybody heard of her? I've heard that she has a program that can get you off thyroid medication. True or false? Anybody know? I'm curious to see if that is impossible for anybody to do, especially if you've had thyroid disease for 13 years like me. Seems like those parts of my thyroid that weren't working would be dead after 13 years.

I am going to start detoxing I think. I am going to start back on iodine and cut out sugar and try to get back into health mode again.

I don't know if I ever typed on here about redecorating the house to put it up for sale. If I haven't, we are; if I have, we are still doing it. My daughter and I are going to tackle the bathroom as a mother/daughter project after this week. Sanding, painting, hanging - mask on my face to save my asthmatic lungs. I need to find 36" Drawer Slides too and find a leopard shower curtain for the shower, which won't go over well with the husband so I'm not telling him until I hang it. He considers it "his" bathroom but it really isn't. It's just a dingy bathroom that our girls won't use so I'm going to make it more girly. He'll find out about THAT when it's done. Ha Ha!

Graduation Gifts

>> 3/11/14

In a little over a year, our firstborn will graduate high school. What do you get the graduating senior? A laptop? Money for college tuition or books? Car? (Yeah, wishful thinking on her part.) Once she makes up her mind on where she is going to college will depend on what she needs I guess. Will she need stuff for her first dorm room or is she living at home? Will she be driving back and forth to college or living at college? So many decisions!

I can't believe my firstborn is almost an adult. I can't believe I am old enough to have a child who is almost an adult! HaHa!

College Hunting Time

We have started college hunting for our firstborn. We are looking at colleges within driving distance as well as those that our daughter would have to live. She doesn't want to go away to college but we want her to look at all her options. Thinking about her actually moving away to college though...yikes!
