not wordless wednesday


my usual appointment with dr. awesome was this morning.

last week, they called after i did my bloodwork (he has me come in the week before my appointments for that) and said he wanted to do an ultrasound on my thyroid. which of course immediately made me freak out.

i asked my boyfriend to go with me, to try to make me less nervous. i don't think it worked, but i tried to be calm. dr. awesome asked why my heart rate had gone up so much from the time the nurse checked it til seeing him, i told him it's because i was nervous!

so i had my regular check up, then we did the ultrasound. there are two possibilities ... neither are life threatening, one is not really a big deal at all. i am hoping for the one that is not a big deal of course (and i'm not saying what the two options are, i'll share what it is when i find out).

i have to have a scan done next week, i take a pill on tuesday and then get a scan of my thyroid on wednesday. this is a new experience, i am kind of nervous but everyone at the office acted like it wasn't a big deal, and dr. awesome said it's not like an MRI machine so i won't be in an enclosed tube (ugh. that makes me really claustrophobic). then i'll find out the results by friday. he seemed really positive and acted like it will just be something we'll address and move on. i hope that's what happens.

so in the meantime, i'll try to not stress out about it. luckily i have a good support team of type 3's on my side. :)


  1. Not sure what they said, and definitely not an expert as I'm embarking on this whole thyroid thing for the 1st time (dxed with. Hashimotos). But if you need an ear let me know. Sending. Hugs!

  2. Glad you have some great Type 3 support on your side! Here's to wishing you little to no stress!

  3. oh my goodness! this must be so scary for you.

    i'll be thinking of you, and remember this community is here for you every step of the way. <3
