So, Monday is the day I go in to see how my thyroid is doing. I am nervous. I feel like I am going to take a test I did not have a chance to study for. There is not much that I can do to help my thyroid along other than hope it works. I take my medicine in the morning and a seaweed pill at night to help it, but that is about it. I am one of those people that over prepares. For example, I plan to pee on 3 tests this next cycle. 1 when I first wake up 1 around 10:30am/11 and one around 3/4pm. Seems excessive, right? Well, I am an overly prepared control freak, so just seems like the right amount for me.
All this I am still doing at work without anyone knowing, so I have a bag I lug to the bathroom and then sit in there for 5 minutes until the test comes up. I do Thai Chi and dance around and make faces in the mirror to make the time pass. The nice thing is our bathrooms are private and large, so I have room to dance around and such. In case you didn’t notice, I don’t sit still very well:)
At this point in my peeing adventures, I am wondering what the front desk staff is saying about me. I have to breeze by them from my office, so they probably know the bag I bring into the bathroom. Maybe they just assume I am bleeding and it is full of tampons, but then why does it take 5 minutes? Maybe they think I am just wasting time and have a Nintendo DS in my bag. Probably, most of them don’t even really notice. I am a very observant person, so I would notice, but the girls are pretty busy, so maybe they don’t. Either way….here is hoping to some good test taking. -S
