I do have the say, that the one thing that has changed since Jake and I got married is that I finally have health insurance. Such a luxury!! The docs haven't found out what is wrong with me yet, although, I am much better in comparison to 2 weeks ago but through some blood work, I was referred to an endocrinologist (thyroid doc). My T4 levels are low which they are telling me means I may have hyperthyroidism. Which to me is a complete hoot!! I mean, I clearly have a weight problem. I clearly have trouble losing weight (I was trying really hard before the wedding and I lost maybe a pound...) and could stand to lose about 50-70lbs. Anyway, I've been waiting 3-weeks to get into the endocrinologist to see what the heck is going on and haven't really been feeling like myself. At this point, I don't care what it is, I just want to figure it out so that I can start working on making it better. One of the last times that I went to the doc, they felt a lump on my thyroid which I'm hoping is nothing but since thyroid problems run in my family and my cousin had her thyroid removed (she is doing great!) because of thyroid cancer, I am a little concerned. However, what I do know is that I am prepared to fight whatever it is and get through it.
The one thing that keeps going through my head though is why God is testing me right now. Actually, why God is testing Jake and I right now. So soon after getting married we are battling health problems and it certainly has been difficult. Not I-want-to-end-this-difficult, but just difficult. We are supposed to be newlyweds and enjoying this time as newlyweds and we've barely been able to enjoy it. I do have to say though, Jake has been super patient and understanding and loving. I don't know how I got so incredibly lucky to find such an amazing man. Jake told me the other day that God is testing us because He wants to make sure that we can make it. In sickness and health, right?? I'm slowly starting to heal and feel more like myself every day, but it's taking a lot of time. We've spent a lot of time praying for answers and better health and our prayers are slowly getting answered.
Welp. I have much to get done today. My mom is coming into town for some visiting and I still have some cleaning to do and have to get some work stuff done. Have I mentioned how much I do not like working from home?? Some other day!! Hope you all have a great day.
