Thanks for nagging me to go to the doctor. Blood work revealed that my thyroid is all out of wack and I have a prescription. Within 6-8 weeks I should be completely "normal" and that will be awesome. Knowing there is an answer has made me feel better already.
That and the fact that yesterday I spent the afternoon reading a book with my feet up, trying to get rid of all that swelling. It seems to have helped. ANd I had a nice long meal with my husband away from kids while they were at youth group. Not working for a few hours and getting lots of rest helped. And finally, Bart agreed to "do the morning" this morning, and I got to rest a bit, not having to get the kids up or out of the door. So I'm now at the office, having had a healthy convenient breakfast that works for me. I'm in the process of restructuring my life and getting myself back.
Anybody else need to do that? A couple years ago I started down that road and made a lot of progress. Felt better than I ever had. Now it's time to discipline myself to get back there.
