a waiting game

So, for those who are following along, today was the day I was supposed to get my blood work done. I'll make this short and sweet because when I think about it too much it makes me anxious (which is something I need to work on).

After talking with my doctor, she has decided to test for a lot more than just my thyroid and hormones. With the symptoms I have, I guess they all add up to a semi-serious female hormone issue. I don't want to get into details but if it goes untreated it could lead to some very serious long term problems. The good news is that it can be treated but I may still deal with some of the long term problems just to a lesser extent. The bummer news is at this point it's a waiting game.

These new tests need to be taken during a certain time of month, which is 2 weeks from now. Well, 2 weeks from now, I'm in Europe, so it needs to wait until 6 weeks from now, with another 2 weeks waiting around for results. Yay...8 weeks for waiting. Awesome.

I'm trying not to dwell on any of this because it might not even be the case, although my doctor seemed to think it was.

So, the plan for the next 8 weeks? Keep eating right. Keep working out. Think about the positive things in my life, not the uncertainties.
