Fed up of being ill/disabled

I used to be really healthy, walked 5 miles a day alone and could eat whatever I wanted without putting weight on.  Now though, I can't even get to the end of the street without help from a quad cane on my best days and I can't leave the house at all on bad days  :-(

I'm the exact opposite of how I used to be and I don't like it one little bit  :-(

I've asked my GP to refer me to an Endocrinologist to see if I'm hypothyroid and for an electric wheelchair too... don't hold your breath about either of those though!

All I want is a diagnosis so that I don't feel so alone with this c**p and the wheelchair would mean that I could take Mitzi for longer and more interesting walks too.  There's a park that I reckon she will love exploring and it will do me good to get out of the house too!

Ho hum!

I guess I should put something positive here as well as the whining... it's not a big deal to most people but it's a huge step forward for me... I can now swallow medium sized pills without crunching them up - you watch, I  won't be able to do it now!  lol
