    give yourself time to get better first.

    get your balance right.
    (medical balance)

    Balance is a good word to use here. I have felt very off balance for months. Trying to explain how poorly I feel has been rough, but all of you understood. What a blessing to be validated when you can barely function. Thanks so much.

    Oh I would love to take all of you! Just months ago I was hiking 7 miles a day. I was climbing over boulders and pulling myself up with trees, etc. All of the sudden, I got so sick I could barely walk 2 blocks. Since adding the increased thyroid hormone and extra D I slept good last night and have more energy. My spasms are very managable now. Tonight I start the progesterone. We shall see...

    There are beautiful vistas and water falls in PA where you don't have to walk more than 50 feet! I could meet you there(giggle).

    It's a sign! Hi Steve I am already feeling a lot better as my balance comes back. I have more energy and sleep soundly except for allergies lately. I walked yesterday and after stretching was able to do some exercises. Spasms in muscles are much less intense and manageable. I am eating very healthy again and drinking a lot of water. I'm already losing weight as my pants fit from last year. I am very hopeful and others have noticed that I am doing better at work. I guess I have "spring in my step" (grin). Maybe I will be the dancing bear next! Hey that sounds like an Indian name! I have an American Indian name given to by an elder of the Delaware Indians. It is "One who weeps for many." My great grandmother was half indian. Maybe that is why I crave the mountains.

    It's so encouraging to hear about your progress Tammy! It gives me hope that there are others out there for whom there are "easy" answers if the doctors just know what questions to ask. Enjoy your hike! I wish I could loan you one of our llamas to carry your gear.
