Thankful Thursday

I am so thankful for a husband who loves me enough to say dear you need new underwear and then take me shopping. Not only did he take me shopping but he made sure I bought more than I needed. Not only did he take me shopping he allowed me to buy granny panties because he loves me.
I am thankful for a friend who told me to get my thyroid checked when I talked about how cold I was this summer. I am thankful for that friend who then pushed me to get that blood work done.
I am thankful for the second doctor I saw who did not lose her brain when I told her I do not use birth control. But, instead say how or why you have not gotten pregnant in the last 4 years. Who said no mam you are not nuts, you have thyroid issue. I am thankful to that doctor who spent a good 25 minutes with me talking with me. I did not have to insist on certain test or to insist to see a certain type of doctor because she was ahead of the ball game and wanted the same things.
I am thankful for a husband who set with me for hours this week after we saw my hormone levels and laughed with me. Who helped research thyroid with me and then laughed when it says things like you are foggy headed. When I baked a cake on broil or poured a can of pumpkin and a white cake mix in a pan and forgot to mix them he did not laugh. I may have a new excuse for all the silly things I do.
I do have a question, do you have thyroid issues? If so what made you have it checked and how do you treat it?
Good, True & Beautiful

You have a great marriage. I am glad to hear that things are getting straightened out medically.

SO sweet!

I personally don't have a thyroid problem, but a really good friend of mine does. She just wasn't feeling right, gaining weight and just overall exhausted feeling. Once they ruled our pregnancy they did a bunch of test and found it was her thyroid. She is now on permanent medication for it. She seems to be doing much better now.

Tag...I have some questions for you over at my blog.

Permanent Posies said...

I have tried to have a thyroid problem...ha. Not really but I am overweight and my daughters all have thyroid problems. I don't....just overweight. My oldest daughter had many symptoms and no one checked for it until infertility set in after marriage. She has been on meds every since. However, this past year (her 32), she found out that she had a deeper problem that causes thyroid problems. She has Celiac's Disease, which means she is gluten intolerant. It was found by accident and the symptoms included every thing she has gone through since puberty. This disease was causing the thyroid issue and the infertility. If you also have digestive issues, you might check it out. Eating gluten free has totally changed the way she feels.

Oh I am SO glad you got that checked out! I do have a slow thyroid, and I take 1/2 grain for it now, but I never would have even known about it if it weren't for all the testing for my fertility issues. It explained a lot of little things for me too! I'm just so glad you've found someone who's giong to work with you on this now!

I had a thyroid issue. It runs on my mom's side of the family, all the girls have a thyroid issue. My thyroid issue resolved itself when I changed my eating habits. I used to eat a normal american diet, a heavy carb diet. It was hard at first but eating low carb/lower carb/gluten-wheat free has made me feel amazing,less sluggish, my acne went away and I don't feel tired all the time. My bloodwork before was crazy ( hormone,blood,leptin and cortisol levels were either sky high or not working at all) and now 2 years later of being low carb they are perfect or above perfect.Now that I think back not eating processed foods and eating real foods just makes sense. You wouldn't put diesel into a gas car and expect it to run correctly! Some really good websites are and
It was the same for my mom as well, her's has not resolved but it has gotten considerably better. Over at marksdailyapple there is an interesting article on PCOS too.
Good Luck!
