When I first insisted on being tested for thyroid issues, it was because I literally could not get out of bed. I felt like my whole world was caving in. I was sure that I dying. My day looked like this:
6:00 a.m. Wake up with hubby
6:15 a.m. Back to bed
7:00 a.m. Get up with Smalls
7:15 a.m. Make (and eat) breakfast
7:30 a.m. Nap
9:00 a.m. Wake up to put Smalls down for a nap
9:05 a.m. Nap
10:30 a.m. Get up with Smalls after his nap
10:45 a.m. Make a snack
11:00 a.m. Nap
12:00 p.m. Wake up to a screaming kid who wants me to play with him
12:30 p.m. Fall asleep laying on the floor playing Duplos
1:00 p.m. Wake up and realize I forgot to feed Smalls lunch
1:00 p.m. Lunch
1:30 p.m. Naps for everyone
3:00 p.m. Get up with Smalls
3:15 p.m. Snack
3:16 p.m. Convince Smalls to watch a movie with me so I can nap (see a trend here?!)
3:30 p.m. Call the doc to make an appointment
4:00 p.m. Doze while I watch a movie and Smalls plays
5:00 p.m. Make dinner
5:30 p.m. Eat dinner
6:30 p.m. Ish puts Smalls to sleep
6:30 p.m. Work
8:00 p.m. Bed
Y’all. That is NOT normal. Raise your hand (or comment below) if you’ve had a day like this.
What if I told you I had MONTHS like this? I actually enrolled Smalls in preschool so that I could sleep. You read that right. My sole motivation was to get more sleep. Because when I went to the doctor, they drew blood, ran the labs and told me this:
There’s nothing wrong with you.
I called BS. So I went to another doc. In fact, I kept going to different doctors until I found one who threw up her hands and prescribed Synthroid just to shut me up.
And you know what? I started to feel better…and then I started to feel worse. Something just wasn’t right. So I started doing some research into homeopathy and naturopathy and found that essential oils and supplements may be able to support my thyroid issues better than medication.
So I found a new doctor. This time I picked a naturopath. And we worked together to get me health…and off the medication.
It definitely wasn’t easy, but I have to tell you, I feel So.Much.Better.
And I know what my body can tolerate, and how to tell when I start to tip off balance.
And you know what? I can help you find that balance, too!
Next week I’m holding a webinar that will help you figure out what you can do right now to start feeling better, increase your energy, and start healing your thyroid. You in?
