Background: two months ago when the nurse was drawing blood to check for diabetes and cholesterol, I asked that they also check the thyroid levels. When the results came back and no mention was made of the thyroid, I assumed everything was fine. Life went on but I was feeling worse all the time to the point that I was struggling to function yet was told to get used to it. Then, vanity struck; I've been losing my hair. Everything online pointed to the thyroid and last week I called the doctor's office and asked what the results actually showed...they hadn't checked it! Back I went and the next day received the diagnosis of hypothyroidism and a prescription. After only two days on the meds I could feel a difference and was able to do things. I nearly cried with relief that I wouldn't have to live in misery.
Washing eggs: I love all the different shades and sizes. The chickens have always been a bright spot even when other things go wrong.
I cleaned and started up the aerogarden with lettuces.
Last, but not least, not only did I have the energy to cook dinner, I also baked zucchini bread AND washed the dishes!
