Yes, I am still here.
Life is amazingly busy. I can barely come up for air. Let’s just say that I have been busy at work, home, girl scouts, helping the kids with personal issues and other fun things.
The biggest thing going on is: fear.
I am about to send out the announcement that I need science projects for the RBT*. I am still on a job search, but I am either over or under qualified for where I’ve applied to 15 jobs (13 are still open). Sigh. The other RBT is going ok. I have about 25 people who want to do this. I have zero people giving us work. Sigh. So the push is on to find work for us. I really want to get this going. If I can get the word out, if we can get people started sending us work, I know this will take off.
I am currently collecting emails of people I know, people at small locations, people with grant money.
Sigh. Wish me luck, I am going to need it!
As for me personally, I am having thyroid issues up the wazoo. I have seen one of the top specialists in Boston and we are first going to force my meds on a strict schedule. This should help. Then in six weeks, we’re going to do a blood check and also do a non-tropical sprue test. Why? Turns out there is a connection. If I have NTS (or celiac disease), I don’t have the typical symptoms. In a small number of hypothyroid patients, celiac disease flies under the radar. You check the antibodies and if the test is positive, then you cut out gluten. This might* (big fat might) be the cause of the craziness in my system. Who knows. The doctor did warn me that it is a big net they cast and only catch a handful of NTS cases, but for those few, this is a great life changer.
For the girls, I have Soleil running with me for exercise and I think I have convinced her to run a 5K with me. We are doing 90s running, 60s walking. I want to push it to 90s running and 45 s walking and then keep that pace for the race. Luna recently finished a skating competition that I will try post soon. I post a lot on faceboook for those who “know” me, but I really need to write more here.
