take time to assess YOUR health in the next few weeks. Schedule that overdo exam or test. Go over your list of medications and diagnosis's to make sure you are treating them ALL properly. Even set up a Parent Report for yourself. My weight has gone up a LOT in the last 9 months. No baby, just way too much me. Within my abilities I have been doing what I can. Diet, increasing activity level, etcetera. I got focused too much on figuring out what is wrong with Jess's health that I forgot part of mine. Not all, but part. I forgot about the thyroid problem. My immune system declared war on it aways back. In what my doctor now says are record levels. I cannot remember when I last had the medications refilled for that. My doctor couldn't even FIND my thyroid, thinks it has shut down for good. She says it explains why I can almost NEVER lose weight. Not even that first jump that comes when you do a plan like Atkins or Zone. husband and I did the Zone. He lost a LOT. Easily. Very little activity. I increased my activity. Not to enough, but enough to have shown SOMETHING. Three weeks and I gained 2 pounds. I should have lab results in the next day or two. My doctor will be timely in letting me know what is going on. No matter what is going on, we truly cannot help others unless we are taking care of ourselves. I am going to make it a point to learn this lesson. And remember it. And I even scheduled my first mammogram for May. So please, take time to make sure you have all of YOUR needs met also. It is just so easy to focus on the kids/house/in your face problems.
