You would think being half way around the world would keep the drama I left behind from following me. Nope. It reared it's ugly head. It caught back up with me and I got sucked back in. Before I launch into this, this is not me gossiping. This is about a toxic friendship that continues to haunt me.
Right after our Thanksgiving meal I became really sick. I was having a constant headache, dizziness, and my ears felt extremely stuffed. I was miserable. I ended up going to Naval for it. Because it had been a few weeks since I had been to Naval, my doctor had changed again. The doctor diagnosed me with jet lag, double ear infection, and allergies before giving me a general exam. During the exam she noticed the thyroid area of my neck seemed swollen.
If you have followed my blog from the beginning you know that Jeremy and I have two wedding dates. We have the big one in March that we consider our real wedding day because that was when our friends and family were all with us. We also have the paper wedding we did a month prior to that one to make sure I was in the system in time to go to Japan.

As you know I have Hashimoto's. I hate it. Especially hate it right now.
Hashimoto's or Hashi's is an autoimmune disease where my body creates antibodies that attack my thyroid during flair ups.
