Wiped Out

Hi everyone. I'm just posting to let you all know that I'm a little poorly at the moment.

Being the kind of person who soldiers on I've been feeling increasingly awful over many, many months (= years) and initially thought it was my age. Then I began to think I had CFS/ ME, but after blood tests I have been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, which explains why I have been feeling so utterly wiped out recently.



I'm somewhat behind with my W1S1 as a result, but I have started to schedule my A-Z blog posts for next month and will get around to visiting all your blogs again soon.

  1. Perhaps now a few bottlesful of pills will get you feeling full of vim and vigour! Here's hoping...

  2. I guess it's a good thing that you know what it is that's causing your fatigue. Hopefully you can get what you need to combat it and ease any symptoms you are experiencing.

    Sending you lots of get well wishes. :)

  3. I'm so sorry, Madeleine. You poor thing. Have they given you drugs now that they know what it is?

    I hope you recover soon. It's terrible to feel tired all the time. Take care, hon.

    At least now you have a proper diagnosis!! Good luck with the treatments and getting these thyroids in check!!! Take care above all else though! x

  5. I've been on thyroid meds for two years. I'm Hypothyroid, but the symptoms are similar. I felt a difference after a few weeks of taking the pills. Got my energy back and my ability to concentrate, and wrote a 110K novel shortly thereafter (after struggling to write a page a day before the meds). Good luck. I know you'll feel better.

  8. Sorry to hear that you've felt under the weather! It's a relief when it's diagnosed and you find out they can treat it though so I'm glad for you that you are at that point. Take care!

  9. Sorry to hear about your thyroid. My mother has always had thyroid issues. Hope you can start to feel better now that they know what it is!

  10. My brother in-law has a similar problem. I understand what you're going through. Here's to feeling better soon!

    Maybe the giveaway on my blog will help? :)

  12. Poor you, Madeleine, I've also had thyroid probs, though of a different sort (had massive infection, which went to thyroid gland, and enlarged it - also called goitre). Was best part of a year feeling crook (and still not 100% now) - but hopefully, you'll be on the mend quicker than that :-)
    Getting a diagnosis is a good start - hope you feel a lot better soon!
    All best

  13. Bless you all, thanks. Yes knowing is a huge relief. The getting better is likely to be a drawn out process, though, as my first hospital appt isn't until May. I have been started on medication, some of which has already given me sore, itchy puffy eyes!

    LOL! David yes a giveaway prize would cheer mne up no end. :O)

  17. I hope the meds kick in quickly and bring you back to yourself. Stinks about the diagnosis, but it could be lots worse!

    I'm trying to get a few posts scheduled. April 1 is coming way to fast!

    Hope your week is energizing and wonderful!

  19. Hope you feel better soon. Get some rest. Sleep is one of the best healing agents out there. I have to force myself to take a Sabboth and take naps.

  20. I hope you get your energy back soon. It always helps to know what you're dealing with.

    Thanks for the squirrel video--it was fabulous! :D

  22. I'm so relieved they now know what has been making you feel so poorly and at least you can now get the proper treatment. Make sure you continue to take it easy!

  23. Poor you - but it's amazing how much better you can feel when you get onto the right treatment. It took me 6 years to be diagnosed(for something else) - but only a month after getting started on the pills I was back in action. I hope you feel better soon!

  24. I'm just glad you caught it. Hyperthyroidism is not something to play around with.

    See you when you get back.
