I went to the doctor Friday for my annual "well woman exam." I try to go every year on time, mainly because I've had issues in that department in the past, including abnormal Paps and fibroids. I just like to make sure everything is running smoothly so to speak.
A couple years ago, my doctor did a test and discovered I had an under active thyroid gland, which can cause such things as weight gain, insomnia, depression, tiredness, etc... Which I have, but then, don't we all to some extent?
Anyway, when I lost my job, I lost my insurance. And my thyroid pill is only $4 a month, but the problem is, my prescription ran out in August, and I didn't want to pay to go to the doctor to get the prescription. So, now that I have insurance again, I went, but I'd been without that pill for about three months.
Well, the doctor wasn't pleased with me for this. She explained to me that an under active thyroid can cause weight gain, insomnia, depression, tiredness, etc... And she asked if I'd been experiencing any of these things. Ummm...yeah. But, the reason I hadn't been to see you is that I lost my insurance, because I lost my job. And unemployment can cause depression, insomnia, blah blah blah, yes?
So, whatever. I'm back on my $4 a month pill, and we'll see if I feel any better. I kind of just didn't think it was doing much, so I didn't think much about being off of it. I have felt bad, but I've had reasons to feel bad.
One reason to feel good though: The doctor congratulated me on having lost three pounds since I'd seen her last. And my appointment was in the middle of the day. They weighed me with all my clothes on, including shoes, and I even forgot my keys were in my pocket. So, yay for that!
