LID Round 3, Day 13

Image result for low iodine diet meme

I got my first Thyrogen shot today. So glad this week is underway. Thyroid scans are so stressful. Including the time on the low iodine diet, the process for a thyroid scan takes 2 1/2 weeks (sometimes more). That’s 2 1/2 weeks of thinking about it, worrying about what may be found, sticking to the soul-crushing diet, making several trips to the hospital, and taking precautions after taking the radiation. Plus, I don’t know how is it is for others, but preparing for and ingesting radiation is a total mindfuck. Other types of scans don’t seem to elicit the same kind of feelings. Although, I have to say, I didn’t like the CT Scan at all and I would probably experience much anxiety if I ever had to go through another (that involved drinking the liquid and get the stuff that makes you feel like you peed yourself injected into your veins).

I didn’t take pictures of food today. I’m done. So looking forward to Friday when I can go off this diet.

What I ate today:

Breakfast:  Toasted Crumpets with peanut butter and Bon Maman Cherry Preserves and cold brew coffee

Lunch:  Buffalo Cauliflower and tossed salad with Ken’s Steakhouse Zesty Italian dressing

Dinner:  Spaghetti with Newman’s Own Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce and another salad with Ken’s Steakhouse Zesty Italian dressing
