Energy Hooooooooo!

For the past several months I have felt completely exhausted.  Lifting my head off a pillow or sitting up-right has been a challenge because of the exhaustion and fatigue, and I may have found part of the culprit – my thyroid is out of whack.  Now I am on medication for a very low thyroid and am beginning to feel better.  As a side effect of beginning to feel like there are spoons/energy to be used, relaxation is actually beginning to happen.

It isn’t the sort where you sleep and wake up just as tired as when you went to bed, but with renewed energy sources.  These past few weeks have actually been very horrible, and the past 8 days have been rather frightening.  As my body begins to adjust and refine the energy it is receiving, it has put me flat on my back to sleep at what feels like the most inappropriate times and for far longer than it should.  When this sleep appears there is no staying awake, no pushing it off, no drinking a cup of coffee for caffeine and thus staying awake.  There is none of that.  There is only sleep.  Period.

There have been several days of sleep (as in 12 hours at a time) and now there is waking up and feeling good.

I am actually looking forward to doing stuff now.  Lots of stuff.  And I have energy, just a little, left over, to be sociable and all that jazz.

Luckily for me, the low thyroid did not encourage the pain to kick it up a  notch or two, but keep at its constant dull roar.  Thank You God for this wonderful blessing.

While I have recuperated, I have watched most of Season 10 of Top Chef and caught up on two seasons of Longmire – now I am trying to figure out how to watch Season 3 because it isn’t, as yet, on HuluPlus or Netflix.  S

Books, too, are really calling to me.  I simply cannot get enough reading done.  Luckily for me, my best friend Sniffles and Cheyenne/a.k.a.  Shane got me a digital gift card for Barnes and Noble and I have already purchased several books – several books were on sale – so I can read.

Speaking of birthday gifts, I will have to take a picture of what The Husband got for me.  It is beautiful!!!

Am I rambling?  Just in case  I am, I will call this post done and hopefully see you tomorrow.
