I’m losing my hair.
Every day in the shower I collect a hairy fuzzy little pet. My brush? It’s a hairy monster alive and breathing. Quite the creature. I’m either too young or too much not a man to be losing my hair, and it’s making me lose my mind!
In December I had my annual physical. It’d been YEARS since I had a real physical, like with blood and urine tests… My thyroid came out all wrong. I must be the skinniest and most hyperactive person with a slow lazy and sleeping-in thyroid. My Doc put me on thyroid meds. That lasted 2 months. 2 months of cranium pounding headaches. My head hurt so much my eyeballs refused to cooperate in their role and keep watch. I called her and told her I wanted to unsubscribe from her experiment. I had to go in and see her.
In her office she looks at me and says “Ok, you can stop the meds, we’ll test you again next year.” Her office charged me $66 for that. It gave me another headache, but luckily for me it was the last headache she gave me.
Now, I’d say my head is fine, but… The hair loss? And the mind loss? It’s a toss up, a balanced thyroid with head splinting hammer pounding head ache OR making myself look like a Mr. Glad/Kojak work-in-progress…
I think the thyroid meds are being created by our fine friends at Advil knowing 1 hormone pill will ensure the sale of 6 Advils.
