Long overdue update and an apology for falling off the planet. 124.6 today

I'm a slacker and I've been just awful about keeping up with y'all. I really feel badly that I've not at least been following your progress.

Taxes, and the guilt of not doing them, kept me from the blogosphere, though somehow not from facebook. Gads is that ever addictive!

My taxes are done, so I'm back, though I need to get back in the habit of checking on you guys when I have my coffee.

So, I have a terrific new doctor who has run a gazillion tests on me. She's working very closely with me on supplements, diet, and my thyroid medication. I couldn't be in better hands. She's fantastic. Next week she's testing me for heavy metal poisoning to see if that could possibly be related to the nerve thing. She thinks it may be that doubling the thyroid medication as my last doctor did so suddenly could have triggered some domino effect given it happened shortly after that.

Yesterday I gave blood for the first time, something my doctor encouraged me to do since I no longer have periods. Boy, am I glad I did now that there has been yet another quake in Japan. It just breaks my heart what's happening there.

I've been doing pilates off and on, but am working to make it more of a habit, and yesterday I bought a used elliptical machine (though I couldn't use it yesterday because I'd just given blood). I am anxious to hop on it shortly, and then do pilates. I am hoping to get into a routine of half an hour on the machine and half an hour of yoga/pilates.

Depending on what my doctor thinks given my nerve issues, I may start another round next month. I won't without her consent though. I did go ahead and ordered from pharmacy escrow as it seems ADC has been compromised. My friend's credit card was stolen from them and when I go to their facebook page, I see one complaint after another about this very thing happening to many others.

That's it for now. I'm feeling a lot better - a lot less stress since starting certain supplements and acupuncture. I have another appointment for that tomorrow morning.

XOXO and off to check on you guys!

Funny for today... GOD I love Oregon!
