For quite some time I haven't felt like myself. I've questioned whether it's exhaustion, mild depression, anxiety, or a combination of both. Recently I've had a strange feeling in the base of my throat near my thyroid, a lingering cough, and unfortunately, a rapid weight gain. After putting it off for quite some time, I finally went to the doctor today.
I'm hoping it's no big deal. I have hypothyroidism and maybe my meds just need to be adjusted. I just have this nagging feeling there's more to it than that. This feeling in my throat/neck is uncomfortable and continues to get worse. I had my blood drawn today, so am hoping for some answers by Monday.
I read all of these sad stories about women, mothers, being sick. Seriously ill. I think it's natural to think that it won't happen to us. I am praying this is the case this time. I would be lying if I said I wasn't scared. My kids are young and I need to be healthy and full of energy right now. I am just hoping for the best (and an easy fix to this weight gain problem!).
