Not entirely sure where the past week went, tbh! Did a couple of mornings in the office, but as I now officially have a diagnosis of hypothyroidism they are absolutely fine with me dropping to those hours for a little bit. Bit of mixed feelings about it – the whole point of doing 2 operations was to avoid being drug-dependent for the rest of my days, but on the other hand it’s a relief to know why I’ve been feeling so rubbish of late, and that it’s fixable. That said, no word on when I might start thyroxine – think it is all still after the next op. Pre-op is on Wednesday, so we’ll see how long it’s likely to take or if I need to be a bit pushy. Still: I can now hope for loads of energy and getting skinny, right?! 😉
In the meantime, trying hard to follow the GP’s advice to have as much niceness in life as possible! Took myself along to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and loved it – soooo much fun and Baby Groot is *adorable*.
Also had another counselling session followed by the relaxation hour at Maggies. Both good. Lots to ponder – including finding acceptance of the idea that I *am* ill, however much I don’t like to think like that.
This week is about staying calm around the pre-op, I suppose. Tai chi tonight, office tomorrow, loads of reading and TV in the meantime. Such is life!
