First off, I finished Limetown, and it was the most amazingly horrific dystopian piece of entertainment I have come across in years, maybe even a decade. In fact, it’s one of the top scariest things I’ve come across in a long time. (Thanks to the episode, “Napoleon”). Please listen if you are a fan of radio dramas or even if you are new to them and love horror. 5/5 stars. You can listen through their site or download on iTunes.
Usually I am not the last to know something sigificant about my healthcare, but yesterday, I was definitely not aware. I had bloodwork earlier this week, then yesterday, I got a text alert on my phone from my pharmacy, saying I need to pick up a medication that had been filled. I assumed it was one of my regular meds…maybe my lithium, or HBC or something.
Nope! It was for Synthroid! By the time it was filled, it was too late to call my prescribing physician, so I made the call this morning. Apparently I have hypothyroidism. I am totally not surprised after looking at a list of symptoms on the Mayo Clinic website. Here’s a list of symptoms I’ve personally experienced:
- Increased sensitiity to cold
- Weight gain
- Puffy face
- Muscle weakness
- Muscle aches, tenderness and stiffness
- Pain, stiffness or swelling in your joints
- Thinning hair
- Impaired memory
All of this has been going on since last summer, so getting close to a year. I’m too tired to be pissed off about it. I’m just glad I have that answer. I still have to go through the cardiology thing with the echocardiogram and stress tests plus wear that heart monitor.
So did I mention I splurged on Korean skincare/beauty products? I need two more products to have everything I need for my skin, but honestly, I don’t have the money to spare. I bought through memebox, and I was surprised at how affordable some things were. Before I knew it I placed three orders. No regrets.
So these will be reviewed. I hope to buy a toner and essence soon. Thx memebox!
