Oddly, I woke up on Saturday without that "hit by a bus, internal injuries" feeling. Other than I'm still a little sore, feel sort of sleepy and had another stomach ache last night (without the other thing), I feel better.

All my life since age 16 they've been testing my thyroid and telling me it's "low normal" and all my life since age 19 they've been telling me my cholesterol and triglycerides are too high and since those things tend to be linked, who knows? Maybe I can find out from these integrative guys once and for all.
