It took a few days, but I’m back to feeling better. I can’t begin to tell you how stunning it was to find that just a little bit of gluten could make me feelsotired for a few days. No question that I will be a whole lot more careful in the future.
I need to experiment with some recipes though. While I probably only had a couple a year, on average, I have had this terrible craving for a raspberry Bismark. I think about them far too often. It was an insatiable craving for a ‘real’ hot dog bun for a bonfire-roasted hot dog that got me off track last year…and I don’t even like hot dogs much. Given that I love Bismarks (which is why I won’t eat them often), I’d best get busy finding a gluten-free substitute soon!
Not much else to report. I’m a bit tired tonight. I suspect that’s due to a jump in temperatures. We’re hitting the mid-seventies and low 80’s this week. Quite a jump from the 50’s and 60’s. I wish I were like most people with hypothyroidism and could feel cold in the summer. Sometimes I think I have reverse SADD…mine hits around the middle of May and doesn’t go away until late September or early October. I just don’t like being too warm.
I’ll be going in for my blood test sometime in the next week or so and find out what the increased dose of Synthroid is doing for my TSH level. In the meantime, I need to figure out why my printer won’t print, because I intend to take in a list comparing the side effects of Synthroid and Armour. Kind of wonder with the doc will say when she has concrete proof that the Synthroid list is basically the same…and half again as long…as the Armour.
