My families adventure on the road to oz via Germany

Relief and confusion all rolled into one

As some of you may know who read my blog, ive been struggling with my weight over the past year and been getting down over it.

Ive been to see the Dr and have blood tests done. the results are in and ive been quite shocked by them. It looks like ive got an under active thyroid which explains why ive felt so tired and have struggled with my weight. It shouldn't have come as a suprise really as both my gran and my mum have the same condition.

The relief as i now know its not been my fault the weight has gone on as fast as it has. But im scared and confused as what it all means. Ive been in touch with the lovley Ipom and she has pointed me in the right direction so i can gain more information.

Ive got more tests to come on Monday to check my antibodies as if they are abnormal then i have a condition called hoshi something or other. The Dr has told me i will need to be put on thyroid treatment which will be for life. That scares me!!!!!!!

My brain just feels like it is going to explore, im trying hard to keep up with my course work as i dont want to fall behind especially since my next course starts in Feb so i will be in effect studying full time between Feb till June when my first course ends.

Its taking all my strength to keep going with the studying to the point of exhaustion at the end of the day.

V has now agreed that i need to get a cleaner in to help me out, other wise i think i will just be of no use to man nor beast.

im off for lunch then back to the books
