Note to self...


Dear Self,
I know you're all happy about being forty and all, and I really am glad that you're so well adjusted, I really am. But here's the thing, and I'll try to put this as gently as possible, you are not as young as you used to be. Therefore it is time that you start making better choices. I'm sorry but you cannot stay up all night helping your sister with her baby AND forget to take your thyroid medicine for a week. You cannot do it. One or the other maybe, but NOT BOTH. That is why you feel like death right now, just in case you were wondering.
And you especially can't do these things when you are planning to run off and act like a teenager with your BFF and sister this weekend. Do you want to drive off a ridge while you're headed down to the valley? Hmm? Because I'm thinking you'll make your family really mad at you if you do. So go take your medicine (you did finally pick it up I assume) and go take a nap and lets try harder to be more responsible shall we. Okay good.
Love always (even when you don't deserve it),
Yourself

I think you'd better listen to yourself, alright!

At this moment, Self says, "Someone, quick! Take a picture of me while I lie her fatigued on this couch! I can blog about this!!!"

Suddenly this has become a fascinating tutorial on how to blog. How DOES one decide on what to blog about when they post every day? Does a little light go on or a ray of sun shine down just at the perfect moment? And do you also write in a journal or blog jounral) everyday as well? rondom thoughts by Jess.

Have a great weekend and take more naps!

I think you are right, it would be a good idea to listen to yourself!! I hope you feel better soon.

I thought I was the only one that procrastinates picking up my thyroid medication from the pharmacy. I usually call it in on a Monday and then procrastinate until I can't stand going without it another day and wake up Sunday morning and have to break the sabbath because I can't go one more day without it---I'm terrible.

Does your family notice your noncompliance more than you do? If I get a little crabby my family asks, "Mom have you been taking your thyroid medicine?"

***Sigh*** Hang in there and know you're not alone!!

You may feel like death, but you look great!

I think you had better listen. And as a hint - it only gets worse in the next decade! {*grin*}
