Am I normal?

That question runs through my head multiple times a day, and, depending on the situation, it may or may not be valid, but today I think it is.


I don't know what the deal is, but I feel like I hit a wall at lunch time most days and just never quite recover. I'm sluggish and I don't want to get off the couch. I don't necessarily feel sleepy (though sometimes I do). Just exhausted. The idea of running one single errand makes me want to put on pajamas and quit the day.

I'm asking because I feel like most of the moms I know, many of whom have a lot more kids, have WAY more energy than me. I don't think my boys are necessarily any more work than normal toddlers and babies....they're just A LOT of work like the rest of them.

I just keep wondering if it's my body, my season of life or if I'm just plain lazy.

I do have an underactive thyroid, and my last lab check up a few weeks ago revealed a pretty elevated TSH number. But I've been on a higher dosage of my medicine for awhile, and I take really good vitamins. I haven't been exercising consistently because the idea of expending energy is daunting to me right now....I know I should anyway...blah blah blah.

I just don't think I should feel like this so I thought I'd ask you. :)

How much water are you drinking on a daily basis? Dehydration makes me tired, and caffeine dehydrates you more.

Nicole will laugh at this, because she always rolls her eyes and me and my water bottle.

You should call your doctor and see if your meds need to be adjusted again...and of course, rest, water, and actually exercise would help.
