I posted a few days ago about adrenaline and a couple of big things happening on that day. A few days later, I’m still doing well and I’m so surprised by it!
With my temperamental hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue, I was convinced I would be exhausted come Monday de to all the stress, but I’m doing well!
On Friday, we got the keys to our new house.
Our house purchase was finally all done, and as you probably know, the experience of buying a house can be.. interesting. Stressful. It’s stressful!
Well, it was all done and we walked in to this house which was now ours..
..and the stress just melted away.
I was already dealing pretty well with the whole process, as apart from feeling a little extra tired, I was feeling OK. The solicitors being a pain, the sellers dragging their feet, the impatience of finally getting to be out of rented accommodation, wasn’t too much for me to handle.
Since my thyroid has been properly medicated, and I’ve been working on fixing my adrenal fatigue, I have been thankfully handling stress and anxiety a lot better. It’s really strange for me! Before my thyroid was properly medicated and my adrenals being worked on, I got anxious at the smallest thing and stress was just part of my personality. I was waiting for the anxiety to kick in, that I’d usually have, but it never did.
So I thought that the physical stress of moving, lifting and sorting boxes and furniture would wear me out physically over the weekend, yet here I am, Monday evening, feeling fine. And work today was fine. Today has been fine and I’ve spent another evening at the new house sorting things out, just fine.
I guess time will tell, as we have a busy time now getting the house just as we like it, so I’ll let you know if it changes!
I’m so impressed with how my thyroid, adrenals and health overall are coping with this. Thank you T3 for helping my thyroid-related symptoms such as anxiety and stamina, and James Wilson’s book for making the difference on my adrenal related-symptoms like stress-handling and fatigue. I’d heard that your adrenal and thyroid health had a big part to play in your mental health and how you handle stress, but this is a real example of just how correct that information is.

Please remember that if you’re a thyroid patient living with poor mental health or lingering physical symptoms, that you don’t have to live this way. To address why you may still be feeling unwell (often despite being on thyroid medication too), please see this article and go through each suggestion, putting your thyroid jigsaw back together.
