I survived Disney World. Do you think my adrenal/thyroid treatment is working? I flew to Florida with my six-year-old. Hubby didn't come. After the airport, and I had to pull two huge suitcases and a backpack, we spent four days in DW, then we took a bus back to the airport, rented a car and drove to my husband's aunt's house for three days. I did all of this while managing a hyperactive child with NOBODY to help me. A year ago at this time, I was practically an invalid because I was just too sick to do much by myself. Going to the grocery store would have wiped me out for the day.
Flight to Florida at 7am
Arrived at 11 am and took bus to Disney where I met my good friend from Florida and her daughter
1-6 pm Hollywood studios
7-9 pm Pool and slides
10pm-12 am visiting with my friend
10am - 6 pm Magic Kingdom
7-9 pm pool
Stayed up with friend until midnight
9am - 9pm Magic Kingdom
10 am - 9pm Epcot - For the first time since giving up gluten over three months ago, my thyroid swelled at Epcot. I lost my purse but found it back at the hotel. Obviously, even after giving up gluten and following Dr. K's protocol, I cannot avoid antibody attacks during times of extreme stress. I had also forgotten to take my second Cytomel that afternoon, so I was dragging my feet by nighttime.
Poolside from 10 am - 12 pm
Bus to the airport and rented car
Drove to Aunt's house and visited with aunt until 11 pm
I took a 1/2 hour nap and spent the day with family. I needed a rest after my DW vacation in the humidity and sun.
A ten minute nap and then we left for the airport at four. We arrived home at 10:30.
With the exception of the two short naps on the last two days, I had PLENTY of energy.
BTW - The Disney chefs were awesome! They prepared gluten free/dairy free meals for me at all of the restaurants, even the fast food chains, at no extra charge.
For those of you who don't know my thyroid/adrenal protocol, I follow the teachings of Dr. K. at www.thyroidbook.com
I am seeing a doctor who treats according to Dr. K's methods, Charles Webb, and his associates, in San Antonio at the Imagine Wellness center.
