When you already have a wonky and sluggish thyroid and can’t figure out why you’ve been feeling like crap for the last several weeks and just “off” for a few months before that and your husband nobody has the balls to mention you seem “off” and you can’t figure out WTF you ate to cause that weight gain because nothing’s really changed and you can’t figure out what exactly it was that had wheat/gluten in it to make you feel like crap and you fall asleep on the couch at 9:30 only to wake up an hour later for bed and sleep like the dead for over nine hours and still feel like you could sleep the rest of the day and frankly you just want to kick puppies and rip the heads off idiots, then when is the most inconvenient time to finally have the realization hit that maybe, just maybe, your thyroid is frakked up again:
- The Friday morning of a holiday weekend
- When your in-laws are visiting
- The day you’re hosting 20+ people for a fireworks party
- All of the above
If you picked #4…dingdingding!!!! You win!!!! Your prize is to beat me over the head with my bottle of Synthroid!!!! That sound is my head repeatedly hitting my desk in “duh.”
Have a great and SAFE 4th of July weekend. I’ll be drinking margaritas starting in 3…2…1…now, so I can’t blame my “I feel like crap” on the tequila and not my idiocy. Oh, and calling the doctor. Yes, I’ll be doing that before the tequila. 🙂
At least you’ve finally got an answer to the why, now to get the “how” taken care of.
Hang in there Jen, and enjoy the fireworks despite it all.

On the plus side, you did figure it out though. And margaritas fix just about everything.
That stinks! Hope you are feeling better soon. Have fun tonight!
After a few weeks of feeling lethargic & having my hands flair I realized that it is likely thyroid driven – but now it seems to be waning and I’m wondering if it is worth the effort to even go in & get a blood draw…
