So, this year has definitely not gone the way I had intended. I’ve been absent quite a bit, and my studies have not followed the schedule I had hoped.
I’ve spent the past year trying to find a brain tumor, and after months of testing and many different specialists, we’ve at last come to some sort of a diagnoses. I’ve got AGHD (Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency) as well as hypothyroidism. This essentially means I cannot create the amount of growth hormone I need for day to day life. I can’t create enough energy, lose weight, and my brain goes through constant anxiety, depression, and panic. It’s been less than fun. The most common cause of this is, in fact, a brain tumor. I’ve had an MRI, and they found nothing, but the MRI might have missed it, the doctor might have missed it, or the tumor may be too small to see right now. I’ll probably be getting regular MRI’s from here on out just to make sure it *isn’t* a tumor, or it’s not getting out of hand.
BUT! It is fairly easily fixed. I’ll be taking daily injections of growth hormone, something I can easily do at home much like people do with insulin. So as I tweak my dose to what I require my energy levels should go up to where they should be (right now, sometimes I sleep 16 hours just to function), and I’ll be better able to deal with day-to-day life.
That being said, it might be a few months, so for those who check in, or use this site, updates might be sporadic for a but longer. I’m hoping that happens much less as the months go. So, thank you, to those of you who might be sticking with me, and keep on coming back. I’m not gone, just recuperating. Merry meet, and merry part.
