Wishing I Was More Excited

I'm going to see my Napro doc tomorrow.

In the past seeing her would fill me with a sense of excitement or at least anticipation.

I feel neither.

The only thing I want out of my appointment is a higher dosage of H.ydrocort. The 5mgs worked for a month and now I'm back to feeling tired.

I don't hope for better hormones, I don't know what else we can do with my treatment. I was going to ask my doctor to treat me like I'm hypothyroid, but I don't know if she'll do that since my thyroid is within range.

Before my Napro appointment I'm going to see a new naturopath who is also a Creighton Model practitioner. My current practitioner recommended her to me and I figured that it couldn't hurt. Perhaps she will have some insight.

I hope to do some more adoption research in between appointments and I want to send some emails to some other agencies since I only heard back from the one.

I feel so underwhelmed right now.



  1. Sorry for your underwhelm-ment (I'm pretty sure that's not a word). Maybe she will have some answers or new ideas for you.

    How are things on the adoption front?

  2. Feeling underwhelmed? May I recommend buying a house and working with my mortgage broker? In no time you'll be back to your ol' overwhelmed self!!!

    It's funny, I'm trying to switch from my Hydrocort to an adrenal supplement (Adren-All), and you're going the other way ;) I hope I won't regret it... then again, I know for sure I don't want to be on hydrocort for an extended period of time. I have a fear of it which may be a little overkill, due to my grandmother's Addison's.

  3. There are certain times where it just feels like nothing will ever change, doesn't it?
    I hope you have a great appt despite your low expectations! And I hope you hear back from more adoption agencies :).

  4. This may sound obnoxious, but if you can't be excited, I will be excited for you! And hopeful for you! (Pollyanna will go back to her bubble now....)

  5. Hey JB :)
    Have you seen the Napro Endoroconroligist there?
    Maybe you could ask Dr.T to send you to see her, she is really good... and more agressive then Dr.T. I can eamil you her name if your interested!

  6. Sorry you're feeling so blah. Refresh my memory - what's "in range" as far as your doctor is concerned? (My tsh was "only" 2.49 mlU/ml, and the re we went to see put me on very low dose thyroid meds.) I have no idea it helped; I like to think it did altought it would make it horrible that I held off so long going to see the RE.
    thinking of you

  7. I'm glad that you are looking into adoption. It is healthy to employ all your options, I think. And yes, we are now approaching the two year waiting mark, and yes, it is frustrating, but I pray that it happens soon.
