what hurts the most, is being so close...,

Just thought I would let everyone know I'm doing fine. Life is treating me very well.

I am just the right amount of busy to have time to exercise, make my family dinner, take a bath at night, and read books recommended by my sister (who has 4 kids 6 and under and still makes time to read).

I don't feel like I have all the energy I had a year ago, but I'm getting used to the idea I may just never have it. I've actually just been diagnosed with Hashimoto's (sounds worse than it is). This is a very common side effect of interferon, its an autoimmune disease where you attack your own thyroid. I started medication for it this week and hope it helps some of my symptoms.

Lots of people ask about our house, which we took off the market. I am very sad about how it all went down, but basically we had no offers even after lowering the price. The housing market slowed way down, and.....

I guess there will be another old house someday. But I really loved this one. It felt so right. We had a connection. We had chemistry. I was planning my life around it. I had the colors of its 100 year birthday party picked out. I'm so confused-what happened?

Its been a lot like breaking up. All the country songs apply.

Well, I hope my metabolism kicks back up here in a bit and I get around to blogging more. It just seems like at the end of the day (and in the middle of the day, and in the morning) I just want to sleep .

I do not like the idea of having cancer again. You looked so good and I pray the lord will bless you and your family. I know looking for homes are hard but when the house goes good again you can get another old house. I just want you to know we Love you can care about you.

Glad to see you back, even if it's for a little bit here and there! Sounds like things are doing pretty good with little set backs. You have come a long ways, what great joy it must be to have even a tiny bit of energy! Your always in our prayers, take care.

Thyroid REALLY effects your energy levels. You'll feel a lot better when you get the levels right.

I hear you on the sleep thing, and I don't have a medical excuse like you do.

Doc said...

I heard thyroids are REALLY heavy!

I wish you could've gotten your house, Alisa, it was perfect for you...

Jill said...

Thanks for the update. It was so good to spend the day with you and Sonja. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Let's do it again sometime.

Thanks for the post, Alisa. I'm sure the meds will get you back to normal.

Maybe they'd let you come over and throw their house a party anyway.

Jill said...

I feel like sleeping all the time too and I have no medical excuse. I'm sure you've discovered, like I have, that it's pretty hard to nap with kids around. I've given up trying.

I'm sorry about your house. I'm sure I would be drowning in disappointment. I set my heart on things pretty hard, too hard.

Thanks for the update on your life. I've been thinking about you.

life is funny, things seems to always happen at the right time, and the right place! Whatever happens with the house thing is all for a reason. You guys are awesome and some of my heros, you are always in our prayers! Love you guys!
