I think my thyroid is acting up again. :-( For anyone that's not familiar with hypothyroidism, check out this site and this site. Anyways... the ever so "un-fun" symptoms are cropping back up again: hair loss, depression, sluggishness, foggy mind, forgetfulness, irritability, etc. I went in to the doctor for labs back in August and they were "slightly off" but apparently not enough to warrant a medication alteration. But as time has gone on... the symptoms are fast appearing. Apparently pregnancy hormones can cause one's thyroid to malfunction. *sigh* I wasn't scheduled for another lab until December 5, but with the changing weather and the holiday's fast approaching, I just couldn't wait any longer. Praise God I was able to walk-in yesterday without an appointment and have my labs drawn. I go back to see the doctor this coming Wednesday for follow-up. Please keep me in your prayers at this time. I think the most difficult thing to contend with is the depression and irritability. Doesn't make for a happy wife and mom... I'll let you know how Wednesday's appointment goes. Thanks so much for praying for me and my family at this time.
