I really miss writing.
I just can't think of anything. I feel like a blob.
It's been a rough month. I'm trying to get my thyroid under control but it takes a long time for the medication to really kick in. Then I wasn't on the right strength and now I'm taking a separate T3 and T4 medication.
I think I'm starting to make headway. But it's been real rough.
I've had my nails done since I was 16. I got fake nails for my birthday and I never looked back. Imagine my chagrin when the nail liquid caused a reaction that wasn't pretty. I got a reaction that looked like a real bad eczema all over the tips of my fingers. The skin would peel and then they became sensitive. Real sensitive.
So, I had my nails taken off to let my hands heal. 
Couple that with feeling like roadkill. So let's get this straight. I'm gaining weight.....due to the thyroid. I can't that due to the Fibro or the thyroid?? My body aches all over...again, due to the Fibro or the thyroid?
Now my hands have to look like crap? Great. Let's add a tiara.
I've looked at my blog and had posts in my head. Every time I sat down I thought, "I need to write about this." Then I couldn't think of anything to say. Even as I sit here I feel like someone has taken a baseball bat to my body and beat the crap out of it.
My 61st birthday is this month and I hate it. Everyone says I don't look it but as I look in the mirror I see a woman that needs to lose 25 pounds. I look at my hands and my nails look like crapola.  Then I look in the mirror and see a woman who's attitude is in the toilet.
I want to go back to the gym. ( I CAN'T BELIEVE I JUST SAID THAT) Believe it or not, the movement does make me feel better. It's just at this point I will cry through the workout.....I hurt that bad. I want to be able to enjoy this time of my life. Right now all I'm thankful for is my bed and my comfy pillows.
I guess I can be thankful for one thing.
I don't need a facelift.
However, I wouldn't mind one of those lifestyle lifts........
Yes I would......the pain wouldn't feel good and I'm afraid I'd look like the joker.
Am I rambling???
OK....back to bed.
Did I mention it's been humid??
