It's official...

I am UTTERLY knackered thanks to my thyroid! It is now officially sliding me into the hypo' range and oh boy can I ever tell. I think I could sleep for 24 hours and still be knackered!

So if my posts seem a little weary or below par, bare with me please until the new replacement meds kick in, I start them tomorrow. It's been a wierd few days, with some very funny feeling spells and it's about all I can do to get through my working day right now.

For those of you with thyroid issues, I know you know exactly how I feel. When Brit' Gal goes to bed at 9pm, then something just ain't right with the world!

For those of you who have wondered why I'm not on Spring Break this week, well our school has a cunning plan (for some reason I'm very Blackadder today - Brit's will get this!). We just take Thursday and Friday this week, but then we get all the Fridays except one off in April, so a 4 day week which we all much prefer.

And now I' m off to try and cook a curry, through the serious brain fog and sleepiness - god help the Hubster!

Wow! What an innovative idea at your school[4 day weeks]. I hope that you are feeling better and your new meds kick in soon.

Sarah, sorry for the annoying hypo issues. I've dealt with it for 20 years. I'm hoping you can get the dose tweaked and your thyroid evened out very soon. Enjoy the four day weeks - great idea!

Oh, the brain fog is the worst. Before I found out I was hypo, I thought I had hardening of the arteries because I couldn't keep a thought in my head. Synthroid is a gift from the gods.

Take care, Shuggar.

I'm quite familiar with "I've got a cunning plan" and I appreciate your use of it very much! I'm sorry to learn of your problems, and I hope that you see a quick turnabout.

I'm sorry about your thyroid. But I do like the Fridays off plan...I think...

Hi Sarah, I've got a friend who has your problem--and belive me I understand what you are going through. Hope the new meds work.

I love that idea of taking Fridays off in April. The four-day week will be nice or you teachers--but I'm not sure the parents will like it. They'll just have to take several short vacations instead of one long one. Interesting!

Hugs,
Betsy

Hope you feel better soon.

One summer at work instead of taking two weeks off (Boss insisted everyone had to take a 2 week vacation, I had nowhere to go) I took off 10 Fridays in a row.

Hope you're feeling better soon. Thyroid problems are a real pain. It's amazing how many people have some type of thyroid problem. Mine's like yours hypo and for me it's the weight issue that affects me most.

I like your plan Baldrick!
