I had to go back to the doctor's this morning just to get the results of my mammoth blood test I had the other day, which was part of my yearly check up. My cholesterol was the one I was most worried about. Now, it seems that is the least of my problems.
The first thing she said was, "You must be feeling very fatigued" to which I replied, "Well, I have three children, so who wouldn't be?". It seems my thyroid levels are down - I had a thyroidectomy about two years ago and am now on medication, so my levels will always have to be checked, so this is no biggy. My cholesterol is a "little bit" high and I have a vitamin D deficiency. Now, six months ago I had a low grade melanoma removed from my right thigh, I live in Queensland where we have the highest rate of melanoma in the world, and I've just been told I don't get enough sun!!! Can anyone else see the irony in this?
Now I have to up my thyroid medication, do more exercise and take a vitamin D tablet every day for the rest of my life. At this point, I kind of feel as if I'm falling apart!
I've done it!!!
Well, I've finally done it!! Got accepted into Uni AND created a blog!!! After searching for insightful websites to help me tackle my journey into academia at my ripe old age and coming up with nil, I decided to start one of my own. I hope this blog will encourage anyone who has ever doubted their own abilities, to put one foot in front of the other and achieve their ambitions, desires, dreams...no matter what they are. If anyone has any inspiring stories to share, I would love to hear them. I love an inspiring story!!!
