I think that battle has been won...


Well well well...I finally had the thyroid surgery, the left lobe was removed and already I feel peppier. I will always be on low thyroid meds, but before the surgery I was taking meds and still feeling weary. I have also read in more than once source now that many celiacs and folks like me who are gluten intolerant have a low functioning thyroid. I find that interesting. Anyone else hear this?

So with bandage on neck, I have hope that the days ahead will find me peppier and less fuzzy headed and perhaps I will even lose some weight finally. Feels good!

As far as gluten free products go for those of us who need them, I recently discovered another chain store that has lots of gluten free products...CHRISTMAS TREE SHOPS. I didn't think to go in the store because I thought it would be filled with only Christmas items...wrong...a friend turned me on to this store and it has a little bit of everything and a whole lot of gluten free items. I recommend giving this store a try.

Happy weekend, everyone! :) If interested, go to www.christmastreeshops.com/ to see if you have a store near you.

Hope you feel a whole lot better as you recover from your surgery. And that is an interesting bit of info on the gluten intolerance/thyroid connection.

Thank you so much Karen! I was fascinated that there is a connection it seems too...maybe not for all, but even if for some, it is thought provoking. HUGS

The Christmas Tree Store is a cool place. You never know what you are going to find there.
