Chicken With My Head Cut Off

I'm sure with the title of this post you can already tell that I have been a super busy lady lately. So to update my friends and family as to what has been going on in the Willard household, here goes. As many of you know I have not been feeling well for about the past 6 months, well really a year. But that sounds horrible, so we will stick with the six months. I had some blood work done last week and found out this past Monday that I have the hormones of a Post-Menopausal woman. Ummmm, what!? Yeah. My progesterone is "almost non-existent in my body" to quote my Dr. And guess what? My testosterone and estrogen are messed up too. Oh yay. I'm so excited. Well, I am grateful that this was discovered so they can fix it, but really?! I mean, how did this happen to someone my age? Who knows. This is all new territory for me. But it does explain a lot. The main thing that it explains is the MAJOR fatigue that I have been having. I won't go into all the other symptoms (trust me) because really who wants to know that I basically feel like I am dying every single day and I act like a crazy woman?! Ahem.

So I've been trying to be a wife, keep up with 4 boys and a HUGE dog and start my own business all while basically have the symptoms of your 80 year old grandmother. Sounds like fun you say? You want to do it too!? Nope. I didn't think so. But in all seriousness, I am so glad that this was discovered and that they are working on a solution. I am hoping to know something by tomorrow. My Dr. is actually presenting my case as a case study with all the other Dr's in the practice tomorrow while they are at lunch. Yes, that's right. My case is so freaky she needs to run it by some other Dr's so they can all drop their mouths and sit around and ponder what to do. BUT, they will figure out what to do and I WILL feel better! Hooray!!!!

I am truly thankful that all of this is coming to an end and my body will actually line up with how I feel on the inside. This has been really hard for me. My heart is to go and do and be with my husband and kids doing fun stuff as much as possible. But my body struggles to even get out of bed in the morning. So, thank you God that they found this out and there is a resolution!! And thank you to all of my friends and family who have been such a support to me during this time. I am a very blessed woman to have you all in my life!

For those of you who don't already know, I did start my own Mary Kay business and I could not be more happy with it. I am IN LOVE with Mary Kay products. I am so grateful for this opportunity that God brought into my life. And things are going really well! Feel free to contact me if you are interested in learning more about our products.
