Almost a month -

I have been taking nature throid for almost 1 mI still feel very tired and have more hair falling out than ever. I have to admit I am discouraged, but I will go next week to get my blood work done at the endocrinologist office. I'm also starting a timed meal research project at the University of Tennessee on Wednesday. It's in HEAL (lab). I am going to be a subject in this study and participate by keeping up with all sorts of information and wear a monitor and report answers on several questions while eating every 5 hours except when sleeping of course.  This kind of thing motivates me so this ought to be very good. I will update on all the parameters and specifics of the study. :)

Take care

Not doing to well

Well, I can honestly say that I have very little energy. I really do believe that it took awhile for the levothyroxine to work its way out of my system, and now I'm experiencing the after effects of too little T3s & T4s in my body.  :( I'm struggling a little bit because I have been so hopeful. I'm going to try to take the very best care of myself otherwise and get my blood work done again in approximately two weeks. This was my first full week of teaching again with the kids there for full days and I did not work out like a should've.  Next week will be better :)
