A bit of 'splainin to do...

I realize that lately my blog has been faithful to regular weekly postings (menu plan, grocery tracking) but I've been lacking in much beyond that. For that dear readers, I do apologize.

My physical health has been suffering lately, the hardest to deal with has been the fatigue and lack of motivation - I didn't know what was going on with me until I finally saw my doctor this week and added a new word to my vocabulary: hypothyroidism.

It's not a dire situation, thankfully - but it is one that requires a lot of my attention as I learn what adjustments I need to make, watch myself and become more aware of symptoms and potential problems, and try to regain some sense of feeling like myself again. I've never HAD to take a medication in my life other than the occasional antibiotic for illness. I have no history of chronic issues. While I am married to a Type 1 diabetic, I've always been able to focus on maintaining HIS I have to add my own maintenance into the mix.

I PROMISE that as I feel better and get a handle on what's going on, I will get back to more frequent posting here. If you are interested, I've started penning my thoughts about this development at a new blog, The Butterfly Effect - feel free to stop in and say hi, and for those who have firsthand experience with hypothyroidism, I'd love to hear from you.

Oh, boo-urns! That sucks! My mom's thyroid crapped out after she had my brother, so she's been on thyroid medication for over 30 years. She's instilled me with a life-long fear of having the same thing happen to me, so I get it checked regularly. So far, so good. I hope you get it sorted and are back to feeling normal soon!
