Walked to the BART (train) station, went into San Francisco, ran errands, came back, and walked from my stop into work - about 1 hour total walking.

Tomorrow I hope to go back to the gym again.

Lake ChabotBrad and I are hoping to go hiking this Saturday. I want to do the Lake Chabot bicycle loop while the weather is still good. We get paid this week so I'll be able to buy the stuff we need - lunch meat, trail mix, granola bars, PowerAde Zero, etc. We hiked the loop last year and it was great. The loop is about 14 miles long and it was an awesome hike.

My edginess is coming out again. I really think it's the effects of the Celexa wearing off, which is why I know I will need to eventually switch anti-depressants. Edginess is the first sign of an AD not working.

I'm putting off seeing the doctor. I won't be able to get accurate thyroid blood tests for a while and I don't want to schedule an appointment just to change ADs. Hopefully the Celexa will keep working well enough until I see the doctor again for thyroid med adjustments.

That won't be anytime soon; in order to get accurate blood tests results you need to be on the same medication at the same strength for at least 6 weeks. I am juggling three different meds right now to get my T3 until this Armour shortage is over. Once I get on a stable dose I have to wait 6 weeks, get blood tests, and then I can see the doctor.

May the Lord sustain and give me strength to be a help in your time of need.

God is a help in trouble though many in the world and even in the Faith may not see as clearly as they aught.
He is gentle, good, kind, generous, peaceable and above reproach. Glory to His Name and honor to His children, though, they may be a gainsaying stiff-necked people. Isaiah 63.

Isaiah 63 is the way of salvation in 1 chapter.

Come Lord Jesus and in your time make all things beautiful. Lord and Savior, remember me.

Proof of this truth recorded in: I Corinthians Chapter 15.
Christ is Risen, Rejoice and again I say rejoice. Is He risen for you? Is He your Lord, Savior and Father. If you must know, Psalm 119. Proverbs 3: 5 & 6
