The Best Laid Plans…
It’s been awhile since I’ve been as angry as I’ve been today…which is a good thing. When you get to the point where you want to break everything you touch, it’s just not a good place to be.
After putting it off, I finally went to get the blood test on Friday. I hate getting blood tests. The people who register you take their sweet time, and then you have to wait some more to be called back to the lab. This visit was not really any different…except I was stuck with a pretty rude technician. One who couldn’t find a vein in the bend of my elbow…so she took it out of my forearm, resulting in this….
…yup, a dark, ugly bruise…almost as long as my thumb. And it’s shaped really weird, too.
Anyway, I went to the lab to pick up a copy of the results today…to find that someone screwed up something…and there were no tests run on my thyroid at all. Not even the TSH. So I had to cancel my doctor’s appointment for Wednesday, and I have to have another blood test. Yes, I’m still pretty ticked off hours later. And, yes, this is mostly a rant.
I can’t say I’ve noticed any improvements at all in the past several days…mostly because I screwed everything up for the 12 hour fast for the blood test. I tried to explain to the receptionist at the doctor’s office that any little change in my routine can screw up my progress. A little gluten, forgetting supplements or coconut oil, overdoing at festivals. So now I’ll be playing catch up for a while.
If I sound discouraged, that’s because I am. I had really hoped for an increase in my Synthroid dose on Wednesday, but that’s not happening any time soon. I can only say again…for probably the millionth time…hypothyroidism sucks.
