My new babies 🥰 instead of fresh flowers, I have plants. Just fall in love with plants they will make you happy, brighten up your day and you can talk to them too 😂. But if you won’t care for them they will die and you will be heart broken 😂😂😂 It’s like a relationship in real life. You give to much love they will walk away 😂 Just give your love to your plants they can’t run away but they will die. #justbeingsilly#callathea#maranta#philodendron#dragonplant
Did I get your attention? 😂😜This is me with sleep on board. Goofy, cheesy, and pretty carefree. But me WITHOUT sleep? Watch out. Right, @skiingalot1234? Sleep has been alluding me for almost 3 months now, which is not normal. My kids haven’t been great sleepers so I was starting to chalk it up to the sleep deprivation and multiple wakings at night over the past 4 years. And then I wondered if it might be the 2 mold exposures I had over the last year or so. So I did a Great Plains Mycotoxin test and am awaiting those results. But then I forgot my thyroid medication last weekend and didn’t take my meds for 2 days and would you believe that I slept better? Even being in the mountains with 2 boys sleeping with me in a queen bed. 🤷🏼♀️ So I looked back at my thyroid test results from December and January and recalled that my TSH was low on both occasions. But I didn’t give it much credit because my Free T4 and Free T3 were okay if not maybe a little low from a functional medicine viewpoint. And I wasn’t dumping any thyroid into my reverse T3. So I didn’t want to decrease my Naturethroid and risk those numbers going down. So I continued my normal dose but the sleep issues were getting worse....like I couldn’t fall into a deep sleep, was easily awakened, tossed and turned and woke up exhausted...which led to irritability and depression. (Reference picture above...this is not typically me). 🧐
So what’s the point? So much can affect your sleep but even as a nurse working in an integrative, naturopathic clinic and knowing my thyroid numbers, it still took me a bit to figure it out. I’ve been off my meds for almost a week and am sleeping deeper than I have in several months. Going to stay off my Naturethroid for 10-14 days and then retest. Just to see what’s happening. Will go from there. Our brains and hormones are so fascinating and an imbalance can disrupt our lives in ways we never imagined. Never stop digging deep and finding the source of what ails you. There’s always a reason, or root cause, in my opinion.
These are the two plants I got at IKEA, an Anthurium (the one with the flowers, they come in lots of colours), native to Colombia, and a (something I can't remember) Amazonica which I'm guessing comes from the Amazon somewhere.
I expect they'll be dead within 6 months like all the others lol
