I received my results today.
I have perfect health according to the results. I even tested for the anti-thyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO). It came back negative. The reading was within range which was 17.9 which is less than 35, which is normal.
My physician said that I am good to go for another year.
Which should make me feel very happy.
I am. But at the same time sad. Because I achieved this by living a very strict regime. My health demands that I live a dictatorship life. It's good for the body. But draining for one's soul at many times. The price to pay is high. The stakes are equally as high.
I am like a wild horse at times being held back by a thousand reins. I feel like breaking free. I wish for more spontaneity. I can't go anywhere without having to deal with what to prepare, cook and eat.
I get so tired of always thinking ahead. I want to pack my bags at a whim and go somewhere far away and just eat (without worrying AND knowing that I will die from doing so!)
It gets tiring after 4 1/2 years.
Oh well, here's to another year full of good health!
