Medical Monday: Daily Blog Review


It is extremely fitting that today is Medical Monday. Can I just say it? I feel like CRAP!!! I do. I've been feeling a bit tired and weary, even, but I really thought it was a combination of school starting back, new routines, not getting enough sleep, etc. *yawn* Just typing the word sleep caused me to yawn just now! NO KIDDING!

Anyway, yesterday I grabbed my bottle of thyroid hormone replacement pills and took the last one. I glanced at the bottle and saw the date on the bottle-July 30th. So tell me. How does a bottle of 30 pills last 45 days? Ummm. It doesn't. That means I missed 15 of the last 45 days. OMGoodness! How on earth did I do that? Now I have an explanation for my lack of energy, dry, lifeless hair and skin, fatigue, mental confusion, and other symptoms. (duh) You would think after five years I would know the signs and be a big girl and take my meds.

So. In light of all this, I have chosen a blog about hypothyroidism for today's review. So many women (and men) have this problem and many people have no idea that they are affected. Taking your meds is essential to good health and function-it makes a HUGE difference.

Hypothyroidism: My Story is all about the disease. There is an "about" section, but the lack of personal information makes me think it is mainly a blog created as a money-maker. That's really okay with me today because, A) this blog contains lots of good information on hypothyroidism and B) I just don't feel good enough to really care. *sigh* (Did I mention mental apathy?)

This post on diet tips is a good one, and so is most everything in the medical category.

If you have this condition or think you may, this is a good place to find some answers and opinions on life style, meds, supplements, etc. Just remember to run everything by your doctor before changing your meds or adding supplements.

I've gotta go take a nap.......
