Puppy fist pump!

Puppy fist pump!

On Friday, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease – and I jumped for FUCKING JOY.

Stay with me here.

All the blurry, tired eyes, the pregnancy-like sleepiness (don’t even), the lack of being able to focus, the ridiculous hair shedding (good thing I’m packing hair like a lion’s mane, because my bathroom looked like a Portuguese Water Dog exploded every day), ALL OF IT.

Done. In roughly 5-6 weeks when the medicine kicks in.

It’s a big name for an under-performing thyroid, and I get to join my dad and Leah in this category. A thryroid trifecta!

I have never been so excited to name something and get it FIXED. It’s been a year of — not me. And now? ME!

My hand to G-d, I fist-pumped talking to the nurse. No shame.

So, you know what, 2014? I’m ready for ya.

Come at me – and watch me whip my hair atcha.

    I’m sorry you have to deal with this, but am glad they could put a name on it and help you move beyond it and feel better. Strangely, I have another friend, around the same age, who was just diagnosed with this two weeks ago. Until then, I had never heard of it. Take care of you. xo

      Thanks, ma’am – I’ve learned a bit about it since Leah was diagnosed a few years ago – and wondered how I DIDN’T have it since my dad was diagnosed with it earlier this year!

      Guess I’m psychic? 😉

      I think thyroid issues go unchecked, especially in women, for a long time – and there seems to be some good focus on this in the past few years, which is good. No idea why there seems to be an increase at “our age,” but, it’s easily treatable and for that I’m thankful. xo
