How do you spell Missing in Action?

Monday, January 03, 2011

Well, I have been MIA. This year flew by at the speed of light! My last post was 11 months ago! My health just kept getting worse, and as anyone with a thyroid problem knows, the docs don't always help. In May I found a holistic Md who ran tons of tests. Even a stress treadmill test, which I did well on. My thyroid has completely stopped working, he measured my metabolism, which is not working. Also, after years of extreme stress, my cortisol which used to be sky hi, is now a 4! My adrenals have failed. The exhaustion was overwhelming. I have been consuming so much sugar, my only energy source, so that has not helped my weight issues. I had been having such abdominal and intestinal issues. My new docs have diagnosed me with hoshimoto disease and an allergy to gluten! Gluten! That explains to stomach issues. This has been so hard, gluten is in everything.

I am on prescriptions and supplements and am finally feeling better. My energy is better, but they want me to work out only 5-10 minutes a day and not hard, I have had NO energy. I can't wait til that part gets better.

I just need to get going again I have been reading my sparks emails today, my inbox has over 3000, so it has been awhile since I was reading them.

I am just glad to be back on the road to health and now realize that when you don't feel well, there are docs who can help. After 15 yrs on a medicine that was not helping, I am finally begining to feel normal. I am getting results of food allergy/sensitivity testing. I will be sticking to the diet that comes with it and am looking forward to seeing results. Sad, because I am pretty sure my favorites will be a problem.

Overall I am feeling positive and looking forward to keeping up with SP!

    Sounds like quite a year!!! Bad health undiagnosed is the pits. At least you´ve finally found a Dr that is useful to your particular health needs. Welcome back...and try to remember that the new system is just around the corner.
