Exhaustion

I just don't know what it is... But I cannot fight it! I am so tired that, I am falling asleep. It is scary when you are nodding off at the wheel on your way to work! I would definitely say that I am dealing with some sort of chronic fatigue or something. I find myself telling people everyday how tired I am. Not to mention I am sick right now (as usual), with a cold. I just feel like I am complaining all of the time. What in the world is going on with me?! Am I just a hypochondriac or something???

So, I briefly checked out an online symptom checker and it led me to believe that it could have to do with my adrenal insufficiencies (that I dealt with post surgery this July). So, I made an appointment with Dr. Harold Katz, who was my endocrinologist at John Nasseffs Heart Hospital. I have put it off anyway, I was supposed to go in for further testing with him in August, to check my cortisol levels and such. I just feel like I have lived at the hospital/clinic this year, but I might as well go and get it all over with before a new year, with new deductibles, begins...

I am seriously going to pick up some Vitamin C today after work, overdose on it, hoping that it will make me feel better. Then I am going to take a nap, if Madi lets me :)

Speaking of Madi...she is so cute, it seems like she is always going through some sort of discovery, right now it seems like she is discovering her tongue. She loves to see how far she can stick it out, she is so adorable and energetic she makes me smile all the time. She is wearing clothes as big as 12 months right now. It just blows my mind because I can remember when she was too small for her new born clothes! Her feet are still pretty small though, if they weren't so wide she could wear a size one, so she is in a size two because of the width of her foot right now. She has been bouncing about in her new tennies that I bought her this weekend. I wouldn't be surprised if she was an early walker, she hates sitting, all she ever want to do is stand, or jump around.

We went to the doctor and he was pretty sure that it is thrush, as of this morning we decided to start her on the meds for it. At the doctor she got weighed in... *drum roll* 18 pounds 10.5 Ounces, I was surprised! I honestly thought that she weighed more. I guess I just maybe need to work on my arm strength or something, because lifting that car seat in and out of the car, up and down the stairs is a TON of work!

Dan and I had a good day yesterday, packing up everything in our basement. It was great because when we aren't fighting, we really get along well! We have decided that we are going to try to work through everything as amicably as possible. Along with packing we went and did a 'Change of Responsibility' at T Mobile, so now we have separate accounts... It is actually a lot cheaper for the both of us now, believe it or not. I got the Fave Fives plan, so it will be fun to discover the 5 people that I talk the most too.

I am anxiously awaiting November 5th! I cannot wait to move into our new place.

I hope you don't have what I have had for weeks...it is debilitating. May God strengthen me for this long trip...
