Missing In Action Smurf is BACK!

Hi, all! Just stopped by to see everyone! I'm feeling MUCH better now that I'm just about over my cold and my thyroid isn't inflamed any longer. However, I can't shake the fever that I've had for over a week and a half now and my thyroid has grown a lot. So, the doc wants to see me yesterday. They think my Graves' Disease has kicked in and started to regenerate my thyroid, which is why I can't lose the fever. My metabolism is working TOO fast with the increase in thyroid mass. Great for losing weight, but hell on heart and muscles. Bummer! I mean big time BUMMER! I already told them that I will NOT go through radiation again! That's how I gained all of this weight in the first place! I'm sure as hell not going to go through that and heap even more on what I still need to lose, which is still pretty much all of what I gained! So, anyway things have kinda sucked lately, basically. If I can just get my disease under control again, I think everything will settle down around here. I hope! lol

I'm still doing well on my plan, but have decided to lower my carbs. I let them get up a little too much. I haven't been able to exercise since I've been sick, which STINKS! I was all siked up to do it (and I'm sure many of you realize how HARD that is for me!) and got hit from all sides! As soon as I see the doc Monday, I'm going to start back if he says it's ok. I honestly can't wait! It's been SO nice outside here for the last week or two and I've been stuck inside with a box of Puffs! *sigh*

Oh, and I STILL haven't found a JOB!!! But, I am doing a little freelance work now, which will help. I just wish I could find a freakin' full time JOB! The job market blows right now! Sher, I hope your job is going well! I'm still not getting your journals. Check my e-mail addy: lilflame13@hotmail.com.

While I'm here I might as well give my 2 cents about the new board format. Ok. Whoever thought this discussion format would be better is a nut! I mean if you had an easy pull down bullet option for responses, yeah. But this stinks. I'm in IT and I do site design all the time. I would never use this type of format without easier accessibility handles. Umm, can you say already need another upgrade! Hello! iVillage? Are you listening! :-D

Well, I just wanted to drop by and apparently write a book for ya'll! lol No, seriously, I hope all of you have been well and doing well on your plans. I've missed you guys!

Never give in and never give up--as Pat likes to say! Things happen. Deal with it and keep on pushing.

Hugs to all!


Kristie :-D

I'm sorry that you're sick and all of this is happening to you, Kristie. I hope the doc gives you the go-ahead to start exercising again. I'm having my New Beginning starting when I wake up tomorrow! Hang in there and I hope you feel better real soon!!!!!

Huggers, Linda
