It's thursday again and I'm down to less than a week until I see the specialist. I'm nervous, but excited too. Yesterday I had an appointment at the wellness center with my chiropractor. My chiropractor researched Hashimoto's disease for me and had some suggestions on what foods to avoid and what foods to eat to help manage my symptoms. He also advised me to start taking Omega 3 fish oil to help with the pain I've been having in my joints and to make sure I'm taking a multi-vitamin. I'm guilty of not taking the vitamin because they make me throw up- but he said to go back on the children's vitamins so at least I'm getting something. I'm going to bring this up with the specialist to make sure that would be something I could take with any medication they would put me on- but I'm willing to try different ideas to start feeling healthy again. I'm actually feeling pretty optimistic and hopeful- which is a good change from the depression. I've started to make lists of things to accomplish again and I'm trying to slowly catch up with things I've let get behind. That's a good change from just ignoring things and not caring much. The chiropractor advised me to make my food changes slowly. I'm going to pick a few items from the "avoid" list to cut out- then I'll try to keep notes on if I notice differences in how I feel with those foods gone. I've had so many feelings lately of giving up and just accepting that I'm going to feel tired, sore and fat forever, so I'm pretty happy to be feeling hopeful and actually getting my brain back into a "fighting mode". Watch out thyroid and immune system.....you're going down!!!
