Either way, it's scary how your energy levels, lack of drive at times, etc. mirror mine. We have different conditions, and some different symptoms, but a lot of our symptoms cross over.
And, yes, aging. There's that. I don't see myself as my age, either...as long as I ignore my skin in places, lol! Just a tiny nip and tuck here and there, & all would be perfect, lol!
Yes, on the weather. Here, too. It's amazing how quickly things can change.
I think that the new medication will help with your desire to eat.
When you find out which one you will be given, and at what dose, will you let me know?
Yes, shopping at the 'wrong time' can be difficult.
Here, too, on being clear-headed. The 'cutesy' name here for us is 'fibro fog.' But, again, more than one condition can cause it, and if you have more than one... My FM (now they are thinking that it's a post-viral issue, like what they are seeing happen with a lot of covid survivors. I did have a virus back in the 80's that caused me to have neuralgia and other issues for over a year. So, maybe they are on to something.), pps (post polio syndrome.) and the boring list of others that I have. Now, it looks like you may have more than one thing that causes some of the problems.
The problem is...if one thing triggers one problem, and something else triggers another, or they are triggered at the same time, then you have the symptoms more often than you otherwise would.
I mean, it's not impossible, we have both proven that, but in the winter, especially, when there's a lot more 'weather,' it just doesn't help, let's put it that way.
But, I do believe that your thyroid meds will help with a lot of things that you've been dealing with, and while it doesn't look like it right now, spring is trying to get here! In fact, I just wrote a little short thing about good weather fairies, lol!
Yes, muscles are a problem. I wonder if dealing with your thyroid will make exercise more effective for you? No clue, but you can never underestimate all that a thyroid affects, it's system-wide.
Thank you. Feel better, and hang in there! (((Hug!)))
