I think all of us with a Thyroid Disease are in tune with each other. Have you noticed when a symptom is really bothering you and you get on FB everybody seems to be talking about it. And you think….hummmmmm I must have been thinking out loud or mentioned this and just don’t remember. Or maybe I just like to think I am not the only one who thinks they are going crazy. I think I like the last answer better. ( One of those days when a word I just spelled dos NOT look right but is. Should answer be spelled like that????…hummmmm) Where was I?? Oh a symptom. Any way this seems to be more noticeable to me when the season changes. Do not ask me why. I just know it is wrong.
Now if you do not have a Thyroid Disease or do and never had this symptom, this maybe hard to explain. But those of you that know me I do find a way. Today I will not only explain it to the best of my ability but I did a cartoon. Helps me focus on the subject better. A few of you may have already asked this question. How many people live in my body??? Well maybe not out loud but in your head and to yourself like my nephew likes to say. I tried to count these people inside me once or twice maybe. I have to say I gave up. From one day to the next the count is different. Today for instance I think there are maybe 2. Lucky day today,huh? For those of you that do not know it, I am not talking about split personality. I am talking body with one personality…well unless I have mood swings, but that is a symptom for another day. Oh yes I know we do have them days to mood swings and all these other people in our body. Little to much for me on some days.
Ok..ok back to the subject. Where to start?? Well I guess the head and go down. Now keep an open mind first and some of you have to really use your imagination. But, there are some of you that will say.. Ah huh…that would be me! Ok, you wake up and your head is hot ..so hot you are sweating and red as a beet…but your neck is kind of cold. Your arms are cold and wait your hands are hot. Your body seems inbetween (guess it just can not make up it’s mind yet) your legs are hot but wait your feet are freezing. So that last for awhile may change may last all day. So, what do you wear today on this nice hot day. I don’t know about you but I have a tank top and sweatshirt and shorts on with my heavy sox and warm shoes or slippers on. Oh no …now my hands are cold and my arms are warm. Off comes the sweat shirt on comes the gloves or hand warmer. Opp’s there goes the legs….where are those sweat pants ???? Now the feet are hot. I am ready. Got my thongs right here. So off with the shoes and heavy sox. I am no fool. I am a prepared women.
And so it goes. Now it is getting to be Winter out. That’s ok I am a prepared women here. Watching a nice movie with hubby and zap. I tell him be right back . I am in the middle of a very hot change. This is worse than any menopause I ever had. Besides this is not menopause. Been there done that. I am wearing a sweat suit , sox and shoes…remember it is Winter now and snowing out. (Use the imagination. I know some of you don’t get snow,duhhh!) So I strip to my tank top and shorts…I did tell you I am a prepared women, didn’t I? So I walk outside in the snow barefooted. Ahhhh now that feels so much better. But than….busted. Hubby is at the back door asking me “What do you think you are doing??? The last time you did this you got sick.” So I say …”Yeah, but I was hot” Not the kind of hot he likes I don’t think. So he grabs me by the arm and takes me in the house and makes me promise not to do that again. Ok…ok… I won’t I say to his face, but to myself I say “Next time don’t let yourself get caught.” But I know he is right. Don’t you hate that?
So, we go to bed and he is freezing and cuddles up to get warm. Aahaa….So he does remember I am a hot babe. Not, He is just freezing and knows wear the heat is and so falls right to sleep. In the mean time all those crazy people in my body are trying to figure out where they want to sit out the night. The hot ones are in my head than my arms than my feet. The cold ones are jumping from my feet to my hands to my arms and legs. I can already see this is going to be a long night. I got a regular basket ball game going on in my body tonight. Wish I could enjoy the game or at least know the score. And like every other sport going on in my body or television….my husband is sleeping right through it. And so life goes on for this Thyroid Lady. So….how was your night. Did you have a game going on???
