Guys, I haven’t blogged in nearly three months. I know.
I kept thinking, “I really should blog about what I’m going through.” But then, I would get overwhelmed in thoughts revolving around, “How do I explain it all? Where do I start? How do I not sound like a rambling idiot trying to explain everything?” and much more. I have a very busy brain.

I thought once I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, that I finally had my answer to why I feel the way I do. I believed the thyroid medication I was put on would alleviate it all once my levels were normalized. Well, that wasn’t the case, unfortunately.
Another reason that kept me from blogging about this was, to those of you longtime followers, I did not want to sound like a broken record. But then I realized, this is why I have a blog, to share my experiences, good or bad. And who knows, maybe someone out there is going through what I’m going through and also at a loss.

What kind of transformation do you think your body would make? The average person that understands what all of the above entails would think, “All of that should yield a pretty healthy, fit person!” You would think, right? Well…
