Okay, I know that I need to see my endo, but in the meantime... I am 7 months postpartum and I feel like my levels are off. I am exhausted, weak, tired, irritable, writing lists all the time, eating like a cow!!! I am so frustrated though, I just had a baby, she was hospitalized at one month of age, and so I have a ton of medical bills. I had to be followed so closely with labs, meds, and specialists, with ultrasounds every month to measure her growth, I had been hospitalized with preterm labor and was on bed rest for several weeks, that I had mounted medical bills. Not to mention she was born in January, soooooo, I had to meet my deductible all over again!!!! UGH!! I have been continuing on my PTU at the same dose of when I was pregnant, but now I think it may not be enough. I have been holding off because I didn't want to add more to my pile until I could pay some of the other stuff down. Why do they make me come in every 4 weeks!! I just can't afford the $35 copay and all the labs, plus the office visit, plus all my other bills!!!! Just venting, sorry.

I cleaned and bandaged that...
