Yep that about sums it up for me since I last posted. MY CRAZY LIFE!
I’ve had down days and up days and over-done-it days. I’ve been all over the board…
But for a very good reason! My son and his wife gave birth (33 hours of labor) to their first baby, my first grand daughter. She is perfect and precious, she did have a tough transition to this bonkers world of ours and spent almost the first week of her life in the NICU (intensive care for babies) but she is home and doing good now.
But oh boy did it flare me!
Good news #2: I made it 3 full months without at doctor visit, ER or office!!! I did have 2 calls in the last 3 months but didn’t need to go in!!! So today was lab work and next week is the doctor visit and to go over labs.
So let’s talk blood draws… Today’s was fasting, I always am fasting for blood work just in case they forget to tell me to. But the hard part, and I forget how hard it is every time, is going without my hydrocortisone from midnight till blood draw (usually at 8am.) OMG it’s miserable!!! The low cortisol symptoms and the near delirium I go into… Hubby cautiously finds me amusing when I am loopy like this.
Low cortisol symptoms will kick my rear end for the whole rest of the day. So today instead of doing anything, I am laying in bed doing nothing. Self induced down day is what a lad day is. Grrrr.
So add in the flares of granddaughter arrival, the rain pains of fluctuations in weather, and a lab day and it spells My crazy life! Wrapped with a pain filled bow.
I hope you are all doing well and finding something in this day to be happy about.
