I'm sorry we've been absent from the blogosphere. We didn't have internet for a week or so. I thought I'd die without something that didn't exist when I was young.
My modem was old and needed to be replaced. I actually hooked up the new one without breaking anything.
I'm also not feeling my best. I enjoyed work over the holidays. It was pretty quiet, which made for a nice change.
We were closed on New Year's Day and then I had the next two days off. I got a migraine and started sleeping for hours and hours. I built my way up to staying asleep for 20 hours a day. Franklin and Penelope would wake me up in the wee-wee hours of the morning to let them out and back in so we could return to the cocoon.
I called a wellness program that my employer provides and told an adviser about my predicament. She said, I think this is a medical problem. Your doctor should check your thyroid.
That's how I found out that I have hypothyroidism. I started taking medication for it, but I continue to fight to stay awake. My doctor says it will take a while for the meds to build up in my system.
I'm also having frequent migraines. I've had migraines for years, but never so often and for extended periods of time (two or three days of migraine, a little time off, and then another migraine).
I'm seeing the doctor tomorrow so we can talk about the migraines. Her nurse actually volunteered to call me tomorrow to make sure I wake up for the appointment. How nice and helpful is that?
The following is something one of my sisters posted on Facebook. She asked other people to copy it and put in their own answers. So I did.
Now I share it with you, and I hope you'll copy it and enter your information. I'm curious about you. You can share in your comment on my blog, or on your blog, or on Facebook.
Or you can comment about how weird I am now that you know more about me.
