So far so good on the medicine. I don't really feel improved yet, but I'm trying to be optimistic.

Especially since the anti-depressants I'm temporarily on are giving me nausea, a massive rash, and sensitivity to light. If the rash does not start clearing up in a few days, I'm going to stop taking them.

I called my mother yesterday and asked if there was any family history of thyroid issues. Both my mom and my great aunt suffer from hypothyroidism apparently. So at least I know it's genetic and not cancer or something. My mother doesn't take the medication for it though (she says it gave her fibroids), which explains why she's so tired and grumpy and forgetful all the time.

In other news, Maggie has gotten to the point of complete obsession for chasing the ball in the yard. It has gone from a fun activity we can do together to a way of life that must be performed at all hours of the day.

I think I'm going to take the balls away from her for a while and replace playtime with additional walks. At least until I can break her of the compulsion. Then I'll re-introduce the ball for small amounts of time, taking it away again when it's done. Hopefully I can re-establish ball as a short, fun game. Because her constant crying and whining to play ALL DAY is making be absolutely insane.
