For the first time in a couple of weeks I did not take a nap today. I needed one. I wanted one. But, I held out just to see how my body would treat me. I’m not sure that was my best idea especially considering tomorrow is Saturday and hubs and I are building a garden. In other words, I’m tuckered out.
It was a decent day–not great–just decent. My head felt clearer and that is a relief. I can deal with a lot but a fuzzy, buzzy head is one that scares me as much as it angers me. My energy level, however, is still not “my normal” (which means instead of 3-5 good hours I am only getting 2-3 with significant rest breaks). I do get a little boost after eating but it is short-lived. It is also one of the ways I can determine if it is thyroid or fibromyalgia. Food related boosts just do not happen with fibromyalgia.
I made an appointment with the endocrinologist in Las Vegas for April 23. To my utter surprise and delight, they will be calling me with a lab order with instructions to go for the draw in advance of the appointment so the results will be available for the appointment. I have hope. It feels good. The co-pay will be a maximum of $40 not that the good doctor accepts my insurance. Patience, and persistence pays off, because had I demanded to schedule an appointment six weeks ago the same visit would have cost me around $500.
Putting on a blouse I have not been able to wear in three years feels better though. Hello, NSV (non-scale victory)!!! Talk about patience and persistence! As difficult as this journey has been, at least I have not given up.
See, a decent day. (My laundry is still in the dryer or I might be tempted to call this flare resolved…I’d lol but it’s not exactly funny)
PS…I just now caught the numbering issue…grrrrr…I’ll figure it out tomorrow *Yawn*
