He said something funny though, and I can SO see this happening, even I can see myself doing this! He said women come in all the time and say they have been gaining weight, they don't know why, and they must have a thyroid problem but they never do. But he said it is people like me who try to take care of themselves, don't feel good but don't understand why, and find it hard to believe they have a thyroid problem. I really was totally blown away, even though Lynn gave me a head's up. Sure, I do try to take care of myself, but I have a lot of room to improve. I could name a million things that he could tell me I should be doing that I'm not or that I should not be doing.
I actually went in because I pee'd my shorts when I ran fast (LOL). He said if it just when I ran fast, not when I cough or laugh or anything else, let's not make an issue of it right now. Wear a panty liner and see how that goes, and you know? I'm 100% okay with that. He started mentioning all the possibilities I had read to fix it that I do NOT want to do and I'm sure he knows that about me, I'm a tough customer to sell to, but I needed to make sure this wasn't something that was going to just get worse. And I guess I don't know that it won't, but if this is all it is going to be, I can deal with it without pills, surgeries, blah blah blah! It has zero impact on my life. I'm more concerned with things that DO affect my day to day life.
Okay, that's it. Boring medical post but Lynn, if you read this, thank you. : )
