I try so hard to be positive and not be negative. However, there are times when I just want to cry and yell out that I don't feel well.
I cant' do it anymore. I think people deserve to know what a person with thyroid issues really deals with in a day. It isn't easy. Some days are so hard to just function and then other days it is easy.
I know I had said before that I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism over 25 yrs ago. To be honest, I can't remember when it was - I just know it was before my oldest son was born and he just turned 26. I had my thyroid removed in 2001 and it was cancerous.
My family is the only one that knows what I go through on a day to day basis and there are times I even hide it from them. There are days I just don't want to get out of bed. I have a hard time focusing on getting anything done. If I read or watch TV - most of the time I dont' even know what is going on. I will have to re-read pages so it will sink in. I make myself on those days do the lest amount that I can do.
Then there are days that my legs, hips and back hurt so bad it is hard to walk. I just want to sit and cry. But I get up and do anyway. I feel like an old woman on these days.
I know one thing for sure. I am so thankful for Advocare and their products. (**) I know what I was like before drinking my first spark. I was a total mess. Instead of having a day here or there it was every single day. I know with these products I am having more energy, my brain fog is gone, and my joint pains are not as bad.
So, even though I still have some not so good days, with my Advocare products they are not as bad as they could be without the products. I wont' be without my products. I don't want to go back to the way it use to be.
