Well, is has been just over two weeks since I did RAI. I have felt pretty good so far. I have a heart palpitation everyone once in a while and I am still taking my beta blockers, but on the whole I do feel better. Sort of peaceful in a way. There has been a lot of work stress in the last week and my wife has been suffering from peri-orbital cellulitus (sp?) so she has had to be home for a few days and I've had to juggle work to take her to the doctor. Her doc prescribed oxycodone today for pain, she is really hurting. Meanwhile we are in the middle of trying to get some of my mother's property, which is in another state, through closing and sold. The RAI seems to be the least of my worries right now!
I guess if I could say if I feel bad at all it would be that I am a little tired and my knees and hips have been a little achey. Both these things could be stress and the changing seasons or they could be the hypo — who knows?
I am worried about the eventual cliff I will drive off where I will go hypO and not be able to function. There are a lot of people who depend on me being able to do my job and I worry about them. I teach and have a lot of students who paid a lot of tuition and there is no one to cover my subject if I am out for a day or two. I have administrative responsibilities, too. People at work who know have been understanding and maybe I am being dramatic. Still, work is a concern.
The cat is still evil — he has not been understanding.
On the whole feeling good and at peace with my decision.
