Today I went to the mall to pick up my antipsychotic medication and 12 cans of Bowen Island IPA beer, and I wanted iodine, or kelp tablets, to help my hypothyroidism. I saw so many men who looked poorly cared for on my trip, and no women who looked the equivalent. I know that women tend to hide it much better than men, and men maybe, as far as I know, even show it off if they're not being well looked after. There was one man in particular who seemed intoxicated and had one shoe that was obviously dilapidated, and I didn't feel like talking to him, so I didn't. He was gone when I came out of the mall to head to the bus stop on my way home.
I've been eating flax meal paste, thinking it'll be great for my health, but I'm finding out that if you have an underactive thyroid, flax will hurt you. It makes me tired. Flax is so full of nutrition, that it's hard to swallow the idea that it's bad for me, but every time I eat it I get tired afterward, so, I need to get it through my head that I should avoid at least large quantities of it. I don't want to accept that it's bad for me. I like the taste of it, and the nutritional value of it, the price, and how easy it is to mix the flax meal with water into a consistency like peanut butter. The disappointment of finding videos that say "If you have hypothyroidism don't eat flax!", has me feeling well, disappointed, and now I want to drink beer. Feck it.
