Went to the doctor and had some scheduled blood test done. The test all came back good except for one. My cholesterol and other stuff were good. The suspect is my thyroid. Now thyroid problems seem to run in the family. I remember having to half carry my brother out of the woods when his first acted up on him. My sister and mother also are on thyroid medication. This may explain why I have good days and bad days as far as my energy level and why I start out doing something with plenty of energy but wear out quickly. I thought it was my heart and circulation. Mainly I just thought I was old,fat and lazy. I am going to have some more blood test in the next couple of months and see what can be done. I am hoping this will help me with hunting as well as at times I was miserable last season and was thinking I might have to give it up. From what the doctor said he had been watching it for the last couple of years because it was boderline. Now he tells me.

I have been fighting it almost two years now. The finely used radiation to kill mine. Now I am in the process of getting my medication regulated. I also came down with graves disease because of the thyroid and still fighting it. I am told all will be ok but it is sure taking a long time. Get a good thyroid doc. and don't let it get out of hand, it an't no fun if it does I know.

I found out last summer that my thyroid was not working. I just had finished my first full year or nursing school, and to be honest I thought I was suffering from depression, I did not want to do anything but sit in the dark and sleep, I had to make myself do any work at all, I had absolutely no energy. Went for my pre-semester physical and lab work and Doc called my the next day with a prescription for the med. This all changed in a yr. I graduated this yr. at the age of 46 from the nursing program. Dr. put me on levothyroxine and so far everything is fine, but it will be a life long med. I have my levels checked every 6mo.s and have not had to adjust the dosage.
With low thyroid there are some changes that I have had to change with my diet. I have to be careful with cholesterol level.

quoted from Plott 1

, and to be honest I thought I was suffering from depression, I did not want to do anything but sit in the dark and sleep, I had to make myself do any work at all, I had absolutely no energy



And here I thought it was my heart/circulation and my age. I just turned 62.

Yep, me and the doc gonna have a talk. Gonna get this fixed.
