A crazy weekend. I got my vacation and comp time check on Thursday and cashed it Friday. I saved out $200 for my upcoming vacation day (take #2 since the first time failed), leaving $150 for groceries, etc.
Friday I had a doctor's appointment. He asked me how I felt and I said nothing, like I'd been taking a placebo, except that I was much more edgy. He upped my thyroid dose to 75mcg and my Celexa from the standard 40mg dose to the maximum 60mg dose. He ordered a ferritin test and a "TIBC with Iron," whatever that is.
I started the higher dose of Celexa that very day (19th) by taking an extra pill. A slight overdose one day won't hurt me. Now I am cutting the pills in half and taking 1 1/2 per day. I'll start taking the higher dose of the thyroid med after my blood tests next week.
We discussed Vitamin D, since mine is a bit low, and he agreed that a supplement was fine. He also gave me the go ahead on selenium. I asked for and he ordered a free and total cortisol test and a low dose ACTH test.
I forgot to ask about retesting my TSH, and Free T3 and T4. The doctor was no longer available, but one of the office staff marked T3 Uptake, TSH, and Free T4 on the form, which I was told today is wrong. T3 Uptake and Free T3 are not the same and Free T3 often has to be manually noted on the form. Oh well. I'll be sure to ask the next time I see him.
We meet again in about 3 weeks to go over the results. The adrenal tests have to be done in the morning and again in the afternoon (I don't understand it all yet), so I'll just get everything done in one fell swoop next Friday. (Edit: I ended up just writing "Free T3" on my lab sheet and crossing out the T3 Uptake.)
After the doctor we went to the bank and cashed my check, then ran errands all over. Groceries were first. I got Vitamin D from Lupe on Thursday, so there was no need to go to Costco. I got magnesium and selenium at GNC, but when we checked Brad's health food store they had a better kind so I bought that and returned the GNC one. We also got Walden Farms jellies at another health food store for toast and jam. :) We hit WalMart but they didn't have hardly any of what I needed. Friday night the shelves are picked clean.
In the middle of all this I had forgotten my chiropractic appointment. We called him, when in, and I got my adjustment. My back was seriously out of whack and I really needed the adjustment. When I laid down on the table he said that he could see that my hips were out of alignment.
By the time we finished at the last health food store it was getting late and I still had work to do at home so we nixed any walking.
Saturday we were up early to pick up Abraham and Regina and take them to church. Abe was supposed to meet with Pastor Brent about math tutoring. Regina was ready, but Abe was still in bed when we arrived. Brad finally got him up. He had been up until 3 or 4 a.m. doing homework. After the service and Sabbath School Brad drove him home because he was too tired. He said maybe they can work out something by e-mail.
Regina stay for lunch, Brad drove her to Safeway for groceries and I spent the last of my $150 on a Diet 7-Up and two packages of coffee. I now have zero spending cash until payday.
Food-wise I was bad on Saturday. Friday I bought a box of Cookie Crisp cereal and some wine coolers because I have been craving them. I'm ashamed to say that on Saturday I ate the entire box of the Cookie Crisp (in two sittings - breakfast and dinner) and drank all four wine coolers. Brad bought a burrito and taco when he dropped off Abe and the burrito was sitting on the floor of the car so I ate that, too. In addition, Becky had baked her homemade cinnamon and regular bread. I had one piece of cinnamon bread and two pieces of regular bread. Bad, bad Victoria. I am on-plan today, though!
Saturday evening we walked along the San Leandro shoreline. We couldn't go for as long as I wanted, but we did get in just under 2 hours, so that helped make up for Friday.
Today I just could not get my butt in gear. I finally nixed the gym and just did a nice walk with Brad along the San Leandro shoreline again (1 hour 42 minutes).
And there is yet more because my life is insane! I asked Brad over the weekend about getting this coming Thursday off to redo my failed vacation day. He said he could work until 7 pm on Thursday, though he really didn't want to. He also suggested I take an extra 1/2 day vacation by coming it at 7 p.m. one day (I would guess Sunday to lengthen my vacation?). I decided it would be better to get off early on Wednesday to get to bed earlier and get up earlier on Thursday to start my vacation day.
I called L. and she couldn't do Thursday night from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. because of her other job, but she could do it on Wednesday, so I wrote her down. Brad said to throw S. a bone so I asked her to do the last half of Thursday night from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. I sent the required e-mail to all parties and Brad said to be sure to totally follow through and call everybody the night before to remind them.
So that's where it stands now, and now I wait and work and watch. And try to deal with the edginess this thyroid med gives me. The side effects are worse than the disease at this point!
