Thyroidectomy update

My scar is still noticeable.  Fading, but noticeable.  Some days it appears more red than others.  It's sore from time to time.  I guess that's to be expected.

I have less than three weeks until I see the new endocrinologist that I called back in January.  I'm hopeful but hoping I won't be disappointed.  I need somebody to listen and test everything to figure out what's wrong.  I had a few really horrible days a few weeks ago.  I just wanted to sleep and felt terrible.  I can't figure out why some days are so much worse than others.  I don't think it's anything I'm doing.  Over all, most days I'm ok but not ok.  When I think about all of the things I need to do, it feels impossible.  Ordinary day to day things. Ugh.  How am I supposed to grocery shop, do laundry, clean the house, and cook dinner?  And do my classes at the gym?   Overwhelmed.  Can't do it all.  Somehow, I push through the muddy feeling and get most of it done. At the end of the day though, I am so done and just want to rest. I know I look fine and I appear to be fine on the outside but I'm just so darn tired and feel so incredibly off.
