So over the past months now. I’ve been  making necessary changes to my life and routines. I’m eating clean now, working out more, meditating daily (sometimes I don’t because I don’t make time for it but now I’m back on track). I’ve gotten my hyperthyroidism together so now my focus back. When my levels are up I lose all my focus and become really irritable. My heart rate is always racing, pressure is up, and I’m mean as all hell.

My heart rate when my levels are up. I know not good at all. I was just sitting down.

I’ve been stable for the past five months now. I truly believe it’s due to me reducing what causes me stress and changing my eating habits. My skin is clearer

I have a lot more energy and I feel like my old self. I’m praying I can continue my progress. Let me rephrase that, I’m confident I will continue with my progress. This is all a part of my growth.

I know many do not agree with me stopping all of my medication but I have not needed them and have chosen a holistic path to my healing. I believe that this was the route for me to go being that during the time the doctors was suppose to give me radiation to shrink my thyroid my blood work can back normal so they did not need to give me the radiation. They can only give you radiation if your level as are high. My levels in a matter of a few days normalized and they explained to me that, that what happened to me has never happened before so I’d said it was definitely a sign.

I’ve read and heard many horror stories about having the thyroid removed and getting radiation. I was advised not go to through with it but I thought maybe I should being that I couldn’t control my symptoms. It appears the universe had a different plan for me. I’m glad things worked out the way they did. My doctor wasn’t too happy. He wanted me to still take medicine when my levels wasn’t up. The Physician assistant was trying to talk to him and tell him that he should allow me to go an all natural way if that’s my choosing being that research shows it can go away naturally. He was not having it and neither was I. I haven’t been back since. I only see my primary doctor now. He listens to my concerns and allows me to take the best approach for me while monitoring my health.

Make sure you get a doctor who listens and not tell you what to do.

I’ve also stopped putting harsh Chemicals in my hair. I’m all natural. No more relaxers that will fry my scalp and brain. 😍.

Relax vs. Natural.

I’m loving the skin I’m in.

Naturally Me! Getting My Hyperthyroidism Under Control.

Image

I’ve decided to write Justin short letter picture quotes from me. I would like for it to be some thing that he can read throughout life to know my thinking process as his mom and to use it for encouragement when life gets the bear of him. Life wasn’t always easy for us and to this day we still have our moments. The world around us seem to be cruel and unfair to those of color. Some may not agree or thing so but it’s the truth.

As Justin watch the news he have questions that are only right for him to ask. Why are things so unfair for those who are black? Why are so many black people being murdered by cops? Why are black people judged so much when people of other races can do the same thing we do? The list of why’s continues. Some days I have straight forward answers while other days I don’t because I get frustrated having to explain to my son that life isn’t fair to people of color due to history. Some history isn’t told accurately while others is. I also explain to him that just because society is filled with greed, hate, and people’s need to control. We don’t stoop down to ignorance because we are better than what we are hated for.

Despite, what I say the world displays reasons why he should still question things and be mindful when he leaves the house, because life just isn’t fair to blacks no matter how free we are.

Happy Reading Justin.

He Got An A on His Spanish Test 

I don’t know how I have such a perfectionist of a kid. He has to do well in school. Last week he missed school because I thought his school was closed because my school was closed for Veterans Day. Nope! He had school. He did tell me he had school but I kept telling him he did not. Oh well! I guess next time I will listen or look at his school calendar. 

That following day Justin had a Spanish test and he didn’t do quite well on it. He called me overwhelmed and anxious. When Justin’s anxious he has a temporary headache and a slight panic attack. So what works in helping him relax is helping him sort out his solutions. I always remind him that it’s okay and next time he will do better but he does not like getting bad grades. So his solution was to stay late after class and speak to his teacher about giving him another chance to  retake the test. Justin said he’s also going to explain to her that he doesn’t do well talking timed test. Which is true! He always failed a timed test even in math which is his favorite subject. He would cry seeing a 40 on his paper. He would say I knew all the answers but I was worried about the time and not having enough time to complete it. 

He’s very much aware of his capabilities. He went to his teacher and explained to her why he failed and asked her if he could retake the test and she said “yes”. As soon as he got out of school he said “Mom! I retook the test and I got an A”. 😊 I was so happy for him. I praised him and told him how proud I am of him. 

Good Job Justin!! 💯
