Joy Of Joys

My thyroid has become over active again!

Found out today that my T4 is 74 - it should be between 11 & 22...

I've known for a few weeks that things weren't right, but I was hoping it would all just disappear & leave me alone... Not a chance, it's here to stick around & I've got to deal with it yet again.

I think my body doesn't cope well with stress & exhaustion, so it's time to make some changes.
I know I will recover again - once we slow down & we have now made the decision that the crazy changeovers will have to go... 
This Saturday will be our last full day of cleaning & then we can take it a bit easier.

I am really hating work at the moment, probably because I am struggling physically - my muscles are weak, my heart is pounding at around 100 bpm, I am breathless, always hungry & losing weight.

The doctor has prescribed carbimazole again, but I really don't want to take it. 
Luckily, I have some herbal tincture left from last year  - though I've looked at buying more & it's proving very difficult... 
The government have decided to clamp down on the sale of complementary medicines & unfortunately, Bugleweed has been stopped. Apparently, it's an EU decision, but only the UK are following orders...
We think we live in a democracy - well we don't.

Why should I have to buy nasty drugs from my doctor, when I'd prefer to buy from a herbalist?
Why should I be forced into taking drugs that have caused diabetes & bone marrow disorders in so many patients? 
I have also refused again to drink radioactive iodine. 

I refuse to be used for research.
I will not be pushed into a corner by anyone. 
I know my body & I will do what is right for me.

Anyway, the good news is my iron levels are fine!!!


Time to book a holiday & come up with some new money making ideas!

Oh my goodness, Kay,
I can tell by looking at your picture that you have lost weight. I hope you are going to be alright. Be sure to rest and I hope you can get your hands on the remedies that will make you feel better.

Good for you Kay, we get injest enough chemicals as it is.
I have to say tho, you look great xx

That's rotten. I hope a less stressful life will help you get back to normal soon. Would taking salt with iodine in help?

I agree, it does seem wrong to stop herbal remedies that don't seem to be doing anyone harm while continuing with mainstream remedies that are known to cause harm in some people.

There really isn't anything more important than our health is there? And we take it for granted when we are enjoying good health. It's hard to know if a person should go synthetic or natural drugs isn't it?

Sending you big hugs ~ take care of yourself friend!

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
