well, screw you too thyroid gland

I've always relied on my thyroid not to fuck up but I guess I should've learned by now to stop relying in general and not act so surprised when the nurse called to inform me that my TSH was a little "off". I have to go back for a full thyroid panel to get a better looky. No big deal really i hope but it's one more appointment. While it's good to get that done and find out what adjustments need to be made, I am just ever so slightly irritated that this is happening on top of the other stuff. But I really shouldn't be as thyroid abnormalities and PCOS are like totally BFF. I'm not going to complain too much, except to say . . . What is up with my endocrine system, and why is it being such a piece of shit these days?*

*I can't beat up on it too much. I passed the c.lomid c.hallenge test. While it doesn't necessarily mean anything great and amazing to pass, it is certainly better news than it could've been. I feel like if this is in tiny font, it won't mean I'm getting too optimistic.

well that just SUCKS. yes, it is unfair...all of this bs is unfair. i like the small font too.
sheesh, don't you hate the part of infertility that feels like the other shoe is always about to drop!
but, the passing the clomid challenge is groovy..that's a lot harder to deal with than thyroid issues.
nonetheless thats not good news and i hate that you got it.

I hope the other looky shows that your thyroid was just a little bitchy at the last test and throwing things off a bit.

Great news about the clomid challenge though, because, like Christina said, you can't really do much about fixing that one if it doesn't go well.

In the glass half full basket here, perhaps correcting a slightly 'off' T3/TSH will pay dividends in the e.g.g. s.p.e.r.m b.a.b.y thing?

Ok, I'm running away before you belt me!

Ps. Congrats on passing the CCCT.

I'm sorry to hear your thyroid is f-ing with you. But good news about the Clomid Challenge. I'll be checking in on you.

When you said that thyroid issues + PCOS = BFF, I started laughing hysterically in a sad sort of way.

Trying to think of something witty to say... I've got nothin'.

But hey, thyroid stuff is easily fixed, right? So if that's impacting the problem, we could be looking at good things ahead...

Good luck!
