The 'roid to happiness...

I don't usually blog about illness and misery but hahahahaha I'm going to do so today! lolz!! Well, there I was, tired all the time

Dog tired

and generally on a bit of a

So I ask for a blood test (doctor: 'Are you sure you want us to do this test? You don't really need it?') and it turns out I've actually got thyroid problems!

    I feel a tad unwell now. Sore throat and ears. C'mon swine flu! There's another Ashes test starting on Thursday...

  2. Ah, hon, bummer!
    But good that they finally got it sussed.
    Take care,
