It’s been a pretty long time since I’ve posted and kept this blog alive. As life gets busier and busier of course I have to neglect the one place that I used to find comfort in – this blog! I have returned for a long awaited update.
In June, I went to the endocrinologist for my check up since I have been taken off all medication for my thyroid since December 2012. My blood results were outstanding! No problems with my thyroid, TSH, T1, T2, liver functions, glucose and vitamin D. So that is a huge, HUGE sigh of relief. I am successfully going through remission of my Graves’ disease and plodding along in life as usual.
So what’s been happening in my personal life? In the past year, I have moved onto a Community Management role at work taking care of the intranet and SharePoint collaboration sites. It was a big leap from what I used to do, and this leap has opened doors of learning experiences and opportunities for the future. As always, work is a high priority in my life, I take it so seriously that sometimes I burn myself out from it – this week I got a cold from so much work and not enough rest. So I spent a few days to rest and now I am better~! Since I have been getting better with my Graves’ I have noticed that my immune system is MUCH better – getting sick and then recovering really quickly is the BEST. No more whinging about about the world ending because I am sick. HAHA! Well there’s always whinging but less of it now that I am healthier than before!
Since late last year, I have been going to swimming classes at least once a week and I have been going to yoga classes for the past 5 months now. My body is healthier, flexible and feeling good. I am able to touch my toes!! Which is something I wasn’t able to do years ago..! *achievement unlocked* HAHA!
I am also going to the gym at least once a week for the past 3 months, my weekly schedule is yoga, gym, swimming, gym, then partying. Yup! Yoga and gymming helps tremendously with anxiety and stress – so all those who have GD – I suggest doing yoga.. and keep at it!!
What’s next for me? Lots of learning, researching and experiencing. In August I will be going on my first snow trip EVER!!~~ So I get to see snow for the first time, very excited! So that’s all folks – health is good, life is good.
Enjoy life while it lasts.
