I have had a ct scan done in 2010 so far. I did ok on it. That is good to know. I was told respiratory infection in 2010 so far. I could barely talk at the time of the ct scan. Ok, then. I have had labwork done that did show my thyroid had gotten low again. I had to increase Synthroid from .075 up to .088. Ok. It can make sense that I have been tired like a big dog some lately. That could actually have had something to do with my voice being messed up. (on top of respiratory infection) Ok. I walked into a restaurant normally, and I could hardly walk by the time that I got finished. (last Wednesday) Why? I am still not sure. I will be having a MRI done on Friday of next week. Of course, I can walk better currently. Oh! My legs were bothering me at the neurologist office earlier. Geez! The doctor could tell. He did not seem to think my leg problem was due to thyroid being low.(although he never said that same sentence) Ok. I am supposed to go to physical therapy. Yep! I can't drive and/or go to work. How about all of that in less than a month of 2010? :confused::rant::loco:Ok. I would be bored, but I am a bit too tired at the moment. Of course, I just noticed it is 11:38 by now. Oh, well!

I have been wondering the same thing....when will it be fabulous?
At forty years old I gave birth to my fifth child and my only girl so I thought life was great but that soon changed. I started having pain and problems with my left arm going numb. When my baby girl was 6 months old I have surgery on my cervical spine.
May I add all the UTI's during this time and the supposed UTI's as well.
My thyroid failed and after 2 years of horrible symptoms found out my thyriod had no function. On a pill for that at 42.
Still having countless UTI's and a couple of kidney infections. I was also having pain in my abd that I thought was my uterus and need a hysterectomy. I finally at the age of 44 went to the doctor and found to have a rectocele and cystocele and prolapsed uterus. Need surgery but the pain increased to the untollerable point.
So now I am 45 and diagnosed with IC and still need a hyster and A&P repair.
So when will the forties start being fabulous? I am just falling apart like wet toilet paper instead. I am afraid of what the next 5 years will bring.......
Life has got to get better than this...I hope.

Don't know where they are either. I started falling apart in my 30's. Dx with IC by age of 32 (finally-after more than 5 years of doctors/tests/procedures).
Open heart surgery at 43 for heart valve replacement/aortic aneurysm. Had a hyster. at 40 and who knows what else in between all of this and now.
Hopefully, the 50's will be much better (I guess I will find out come May)

I did have major surgery on my neck last Friday. Ok. I am sitting here with a brace on my neck. How about that? Also, I finally took my first actual shower since last Friday morning. Ok. I have not shaved so far. I want to.(somehow)(itching sometimes) Ok. Ogeechee Home Health nurse stopped by and said I was doing good.(no fever any longer) (no discharge any longer) I just feel tired without even being able to do much. Geez! Bummer! At least, I am still breathing now. We don't have good weather outside, but a former classmate died recently. Oh!Iwill still count my blessings now. Yep!
