January 20, 2016 – The joy is in the journey

What a week? started out hardly being able to more around but made myself keep going, then all of a sudden yesterday I woke up feeling human again.  My head cleared and I started to feel like I had some energy.  Today I woke up full of energy and was able to do some cleaning that was desperately needed and got some laundry done.  I read this blog called Hypothyroid Mom, i am a hypothyroid grandma.  Hopefully this  will get a bit better every day and by next week I will have the energy to get through a whole day.

Having a bunch of autoimmune diseases my life has been quite a journey.  But until I die I will be fighting with them.  I cannot let them beat me.

Now for the fun stuff. Monday evening I was the hostess for our Red Bonnet Belles Red Hat group event.  I planned an outing to the Pottery Place for painting pottery.  Everyone seemed to have a good time and some of the woman are very talented painters.  Me, well I made another dinner plate – child size for my Sunshine Solveig.  I hope it turns out.   Before the event four of us went to dinner at the Plaza which was nice.

Last night I went to Tai Chi and was able to get into it and remember what I was suppose to do.  So nice to know that my mind is not gone or going. Well, let’s be honest I am aware that I am on the downhill slide but would like to feel my optimal best.  If my blood test on Monday shows that I need more thyroid then I anticipate feeling so much better eventually.

Life is such an interesting journey.
