Wow, it really has been a long time since I last posted here. Life is crazy these days. I feel like I am on a roller coaster with steep drops and torrential climbs. My health is well, not great. I was dx with an auto-immune disease called Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. It is associated with Hypothyroidism. It affects the thyroid. In a nutshell, my immune system is slowly "eating" away my thyroid down to nothing. My disease has just wiped me out. I am so tired all the time. I have gained 30+ lbs and it is VERY hard to take off because my metabolism is regulated by my thyroid. There are tons of other issues that go along with it that I have to deal with too. If you would like to read up on it, there is a good article about it here and here. So I am learning to eat for my disease and doing lots of yoga(which still hurts btw!!). I havent been able to knit for a long time. I have been to busy with drs and my new biz that there just isnt time. I really miss it and would like to get back to it soon!! The new biz I am talking about is my Candle business. I am an Independent Consultant for Partylite Candles. It so much fun and I get to have all sorts of great smelling candles and accessories in my home. I am enjoying getting to meet new peeps too! My fam is doing well. I just got to spend a night with the hubby. He just got home after about 5 days away. It was nice to just lay with him and catch up on everything. He is so amazing. I cant believe that we have been together for almost 9 yrs! He has really been my rock through all of the crap that has been happening lately. I dont know what I would do without him. I think I have caught you all up on the latest. I will try and get on here more often to give you the scoop. Take care peeps. I hope things are wonderful wherever you are! xo
