Catching Up

Can't believe that it has been almost a month since I posted. It has been a crazy month, so maybe I shouldn't be surprised. Holy week was kind of typical of this whole time --- death of a parishioner, with the funeral on the Saturday before Easter, losing the director for LARRI (Lakeshore Regional Recovery of Indiana), and some health issues that I have been dealing with.

The good news (for me at least) is that I think I am getting a better handle on why I have felt like crap since the first of the year. Sure part of it has been trying to juggle the church and all of my community responsibilities (especially LARRI), but that isn't the whole story.

Having seen four different doctors in the last month, I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto Disease (hypothyroidism) -- which is the opposite of Lindsey's Graves Disease. What this means is I will be taking synthroid the rest of my life --- not a real big deal, but hopefully in the next couple of weeks I will start to get some of my energy back. Still chasing a few other rabbits, but I think this was the big one.

I am looking forward to Haley's participation in the Munster Theater Companies production of Carousel this week. Show times are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7pm, and Sunday afternoon at 2pm. All performances are held at the Munster High School Auditorium.

I have finished a number of books and will try to get them posted later today or tomorrow.

After I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and started synthroid, I felt a lot better. Best wishes as you figure it all out!
