is the best thing to happen.

 As you may know we here at Dom Hagar have a basket full of cats which is the technical term for too fucking many. Last week Along with the current bug du jour I noticed my elbow which had been off and on uncomfy for weeks was once again not only painful but warm and hard. That means it's time for this little girl to get herself to the doctor. She sent me to get an ultrasound which confirmed I did indeed have an infection which had spead to my lymph nodes. Anti-biotic ordered  along with 1800 mg of ibuprophen to be taken daily and we were off. Easy peasy.

 Until this Monday when the doctor called me to ask if I could come in to discuss the results of my ultrasound. *blinkblink* you mean the one she already told me about over the phone? *blinkblink* really? So on top of one of the busiest weeks this month in terms of running around and work I now get to worry about why the doctor feels the need to talk to me in person about something we discussed on the phone...


ready ! set! go stress!

Turns out the girl who did the ultrasound started at my neck and went all the way down to my wrist which is not the usual way to check out someone's elbow. Luckily for me she did because they found a node on my thyroid. Not sure what it is but I have an appointment with a specialist in a few weeks to go over a second ultrasound and the seventeen gallons of blood they took today. (ok, maybe not that much but when it has to come from the back of your hand it feels like a lot). In talking to the dr. I have symptoms of a mild hypothyroidism which may be caused by this little tiny node hanging out in my neck.

 So bad news - I have a thing that may or may not be a big thing

 Good news - I am a lazy fat girl for a reason

Seriously what it means is that not only is it even more important for me to be healthy but if I don't make gains as fast as I would like at least I can take comfort in the idea that it's not just because I am a lazy slob. It also explains what is for me a year of unusually frequent illness. Healthy is once again job one!

Just one more adventure on this crazy ride of life.

Also, in case you haven't already found this out, thyroid issues are known to cause mood swings/anxiety/depression. So your bi-polar craziness may not be bi-polar craziness.
