I just returned from a fun adventure with Trinity. I’ll update about that once I have photos uploaded and sorted. I’m too exhausted to even think about that right now.
It’s that ‘2:30 feeling.’ I get it every day. Some days are worse than others. Yesterday and today have been bad; it’s a struggle to not nap. It usually lasts from around 3:00pm until about 8:00pm.
It’s so bad today that I just tried to make dinner a whole hour early and then filled my coffee cup with creamer and added a tiny bit of coffee. Brain, why you no work?
I always figured I was exhausted because I didn’t sleep well, I had done a lot, or I was just plain lazy. Now that I’m being tested for a thyroid problem, I’m starting to wonder if the doctor might just be right.
A thyroid problem never crossed my mind before this. I’ve spent the last 2+ years thinking I’ve had a hormonal issue. How did I come up with this theory? My symptoms didn’t appear until after I had the Depo Shot. I had lost a ton of weight while on the shot, but as soon as the side effects I had from it disappeared, my weight loss stopped. I keep trying to think about how things were before I had the shot, but it’s hazy. I know my weight loss was slow, but I was just working out and trying to eat better; I hadn’t started counting calories until just before the shot.
Because the shot uses progesterone only, I thought that meant I had a progesterone deficiency. I looked it up, and most of the side effects apply to me. It can lead to difficulty losing weight, too. It just fit. I had no reason to think about anything else.
Now, I’m willing to admit that I might have a Thyroid issue.
I started doing research in hopes of figuring something out. Mostly, I wanted to convince myself that it could be my Thyroid. That way I could tell myself I wouldn’t need to get more blood drawn. What I found is pretty interesting.
Apparently thyroid issues can be triggered by hormonal imbalances So I might still be right about the progesterone deficiency, and the doctor might be right about thyroid.
So, now I’m all confused and worried and blah. I should just stop and leave the diagnosing to the doctor. It’s no secret that I hate and distrust doctors, but there’s nothing I can do in this case. I just have to wait until the 10th for my results. If I keep looking this stuff up, I’m just going to drive myself crazy because EVERYTHING seems to fit.
I’m beginning to think that the Depo shot was the worst thing I’ve ever done to my body. I only had it once, and the side effects were AWFUL. I don’t even know where to start, but ugh. Just ugh. NEVER use Depo, girls. NEVER.
I’ll just stop now. If you read this far, congratulations. This was seriously just me rambling to get my thoughts out in hope of making myself feel better.
I just have to make it until October 10th, just a week and a half. I can do this!
Thank you for listening and not thinking I’m completely crazy.
