I just went in for bloodwork on Wednesday and am waiting on the results. I know there is something really wrong with me asI am tired all of the time, nauseous most days, my whole body just hurts all of the time down to pain in my knuckles, my hair is falling out and leaving huge bald spots,rapid abdominal weight gain, my periods are whacky etc. My friends say that my symptoms seem most consistent with a thyroid problem. My doctor ran a whole panel checking for all kinds of stuff and now I just have to wait to see if anything comes back. I have been feeling really bad the past couple of days and I am sure the stress and anticipation of the results are not helping me. The scariest thing for me right now aside from the symptoms I have been dealing with for months is the hair loss. I have always had really long thick beautiful hair and now I really just look sick. I know that hair loss is a really common symptom and was wondering if anyone had any advice for this or if I should just wait it out. I was thinking about just chopping it all off, which is hard because I had hair almost down to my behind. I know I may be jumping the gun here, as I haven't even gotten the results back yet, but this is so scary and I feel like I don't have any idea about what is going on with me. One of my biggest fears is that they don't find anything and I will continue to feel like this with nothing to help make it better. I got a little more freaked out yesterday because I was having really bad hot flashes, I was sweating like a pig and it was 58 degrees in my house. My stoic boyfriend finally looked worried about me as he was snuggled up freezing under a blanket. I joked about really early onset menopause, but that is highly unlikely considering I am only 26. Well, sorry to ramble and I would love to hear if anyone has any advice or information they can offer. Thank you!

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
