test tomorrow

So, a few weeks ago I posted two different times writing about my frustrations in losing the rest of this weight.  After discussing with my nutritionist and doctor, they both agreed on having me take a list of blood tests.  Well, tomorrow is test time.  I've sort of forgotten about it.  A little because I didn't want to dwell over it for 6 weeks and a little because I've just been too busy to think about anything like this.

I'm supposed to go in having not eaten anything, so it was recommended to go in first this in the morning.  This stresses me out a little bit because my veins are difficult to find if I'm not very hydrated.  How can you be very hydrated first thing in the morning?  I'm going to drink tons and tons of water tonight so hopefully that will help.

After talking with a girl friend and researching it a little bit, my thyroid is likely 100% to blame for everything going on with me.  Who knew that it controlled so much of your body?! Seriously!  I think I have hypothyroidism which would explain many, many things: cold all the time, difficulty losing weight, being tired all the time, and all the aches I've been getting in my joints (mainly my knees).  So, I researched treatments for it.  Luckily, they have them and thankfully, they seem relatively easy.  Just a pill.  That simple.  The hard part is finding the right dosage, I guess.  Yay for guessing games!

Anyways...I'm getting a little ahead of myself.  I haven't even taken the test yet, let alone received the results.  I'm honestly just hoping that it is something and that the something is really easy to fix.  I'd hate to think that I've put all of this time, effort, energy, and money to realize that this is as good as it gets.  I refuse to believe it.

  1. Pack a snack in your purse so you can get something in your system right after the tests. When I had my blood work done earlier this year I got really lightheaded and they gave me some candy to suck on. Good luck!
