Continuing with the 7 things meme, this week it's 7 things I do now:
1. Battle with Graves Disease and right now it’s really becoming a battle again! For the 3rd time since diagnosis I am swinging into Hypothyroidism again, which is where everything slows down drastically. The past week I have been experiencing a rollercoaster ride with my blood pressure and this in turn stresses me! The last few months have been great as I was in normal range, but now I am tired, anxiety is creeping back in, I have no oomph and just feel low at times. Thoughts of possible surgery have even crossed my mind this past week, as being on this constant rollercoaster gets old fast.2. Weightwatchers – because being hypo’ again also means weight gain, so I am back on the plan once again! I prefer to follow it online, as the meetings are 30mins drive from me and I also prefer the online set-up.3. Look forward to Christmas, which is without doubt my favourite time of the year by far. Love the weather, the food, the socialising, the decorations – just love it all.4. Blog, as a few of you may have noticed! It’s interesting to see how my blog post numbers have dropped though since I have gone back to full-time work, but I still enjoy maintaining my blog daily. I can’t believe I have now been doing this for 10-months!5. Drink a lot of hot tea. My consumption always goes up with the cooler weather, but this year even more so after the tea shortage I had to endure for over a month! I have PG Tips in the morning and Earl Grey the rest of the day.6. Hope fervently that President Obama will be able to bring about the changes he promised. And that the optimism his election has generated persists and people give him time. I think the whole world is ready for a change and a new style of government.7. Continue to get frustrated with the American ‘lack’ of a healthcare system and wish someone would come up with a workable solution, that means people can afford proper healthcare without fear of bankruptcy.
