I'm so excited! It is December. I love this time of year. I get so excited around Christmastime!
Today was a good first day of December. Last month I had a really bad month because I was dealing with a lot of depression. I still am, but today at least I got a piece of the puzzle of why I haven't been feeling well physically and mentally. Lately I have been depressed, sluggish, sleeping alot, and gaining a lot of weight. Like major weight. Let me tell you my day's discovery. I was waiting for my therapist this morning when my doctor came in and pulled me aside. She had recently run a bunch of tests on me. She told me that my thyroid was off, and she believed that this was most likely the cause of my recent increase in depression. I went in and talked to my therapist about it. She said that a low thyroid problem was what they believed caused my recent exacerbation in my depression, my recent weight gain, and even probably my recent OCD symptoms.
You may think I am strange to be glad that I know I have a thyroid problem, but I am just excited that I have a name for my illness, and know what it is, so I can know how to treat it.
My doctor wrote me a prescription. I am excited. It is supposed to help with the depression and weight gain! Yay!
Well, I need to go now. I have had a long day. I started out this morning going over to Valerie and Chelsea's. Chels made us a delicious lunch of Chicken Alfredo. She also showed us her kitten. He is one of the cutest kittens I have ever seen in my life! And spunky. And bright. If you stick out your tongue or wink at him he does it back - he copies you! And at only one month old. You may think I am making this up or am daft, but I promise you it is true.
Must go, much love, Krissy
