In May I hit an all time low of 5 posts in 1 month. I will partially blame Angie because she was visiting for two weeks, and I tried to keep my loafing-around-on-the-computer time to a minimum while she was here. (I promise a post about her visit is upcoming.) And Maureen is also to blame because an infant who wants my attention is a definite posting obstacle. But I have discovered another scapegoat: Hashimoto's disease.
I was diagnosed yesterday. It's an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks and gradually destroys the thyroid gland. My doctor had me stop thyroid meds at the end of April, and May was sort of a blur of low energy and mood. So we'll see what the blood test says about my levels this time around.
Meanwhile, I am beginning the tricky process of going gluten free. Doctor's orders. Last night I attacked the pantry. Did you know that the food ingredients "natural flavors" and "caramel coloring" have gluten in them? Ug. Double ug. More on all of this as it is revealed.
