Day 5 of #365daysofselfcare

This Blog is part of the #365daysofselfcare challenge 

IMG_20180504_213822_229Today’s act of self-care, was to persevere with my local GP to be seen by a doctor, after weeks of trying and having no luck.

I am so glad I persisted as it turns out that my blood tests show l have an under-active thyroid! This could explain why my depression and anxiety has become so severe over the last six months and explain to crippling fatigue I’ve been experiencing.

I’m also low on vitamin D  and my cholesterol is high. Apparently this also all linked to hypothyroidism.  It additionally explains the carpal tunnel syndrome too!

I am of course not happy to know l have hypothyroidism, but I am happy to at last have a reason for feeling so terrible. I am very hopeful that the new medications will get me feeling back to normal soon. Thank goodness l managed to see a doctor!

After  a very eventful day, I am cow curling up in bed, watching Starwars, and then having an early night
