I had a doctor’s appointment this morning. A follow up to my appointment two weeks ago. My scheduled time was 9:15, I got in to see him at 10:45. Let’s not even go there.
He asked me how I felt, I told him. I told him about the weekend. I was happy. He was happy. Then we got even happier!
He went over my blood test results with me. My numbers are all where they are supposed to be except for two. I knew the cholesterol was high, it has been for ever and a day. We’ll work on that but not right now. He’s much more concerned with another number that was too low.
My doctor isn’t ruling out the possibility of Seasonal Affective Disorder. (SAD) That’s where people have episodes of depression that occur every year during fall or winter. This is a possible contributing factor since I had a period last year at this time of the same thing but it wasn’t nearly as long lasting or as severe. I always did hate it when the clocks got turned back and it was dark at 5 p.m..
So now I will start a regimen of a low dose thyroid hormone replacement and a low dose of anti-depressant. And let’s not forget the meds for the shoulder. Two weeks ago I didn’t take any medication and now I have a mini-pharmacy. If they allow me to feel like me…then I’ll take it!
Yep, very good news! I’m fixable!
