Pastry

Today I bought a pastry to celebrate something is wrong with me. Weird,huh? I don’t think so.

I visited my doctor again today, my blood results were in.
I have a slow working thyroid. So now we have to adjust the medication and then I will be ‘normal’ again. Continue reading

The pituitary

In the meanwhile I talked to the head doctor of rehab again.

All the blood samples were not taken for nothing.
There is a change in my hormone values.

This doctor thinks that the pituitary did get a “punch” from the cerebral hemorrhage.
Something which doesn’t happen a lot, but it does happen.
It is not damaged, just upset.
The bleeding occured 1.5 cm away from the pituitary gland.

For those who don’t know what the pituitary is, I will give a small explanation:

The pituitary looks like a small kind of pea 1 cm in diameter; it is a gland which produces hormones.
It is located in the middle of the head, right under the brain.

The hormones which are produced here are responsible for:
Growth
Blood pressure
Functions for male and female genitals
Thyroid function
Metabolism ( converting food into energy)
Water regulation in the body
Water balance by controlling the reabsorption of water by the kidneys
Temperature regulation
Pain control
Influences emotions
And more

The doctor is not completely sure, but it would explain almost all the problems I have been dealing with this past year, and what I am still dealing with.

Good news is that it is all healing again, so I could be “my old” me again soon. ( May be even lose some weight ? Ha ha ha)

Yeah !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It feels good, I would rather be healthy of course.
But knowing that it might be this and I will probably be ok again, is doing me good.
