Thankful Thursday 16 June 2022

Thursday already!? Where did this week go? Tommy stayed with me for the past five days, while my parents are cruising Alaska and Canada, and today while I was at work he went home. I miss him already.

I really love him and he really loves me too. On Tuesday, I was officially diagnosed as hyperthyroid. Since I lost a lot of weight, it’s not uncommon for my thyroid meds to need adjustment. Hyper does suck more than hypo, though.

I had an accident on Tuesday night at home before I made it to the toilet. I started crying and Tommy heard me. He came rushing to the bathroom and saw the accident.

I said, “this has been my life for the past few months! This is so embarrassing!” “Babe, shit happens. Let’s get you cleaned up and let’s wash these clothes.” He washed me and put my clothes in the wash.

I continued crying in the bathroom and he said, “don’t be embarrassed. As you have said to me many times before when I was at my lowest, ‘we are a team and we are on this journey together.’ We are a team and we’re on this journey together. I wouldn’t want to do this journey with anyone else.”

I took another day off yesterday. I had the case of the runs and honestly, I didn’t think the stress of the County would help. We lazed around yesterday. He made sure I was hydrated and loved.

I went back to work today and the ladies in reception asked me how I was feeling. I told them everything, told them how Tommy responded. The ladies said, “that right there is a good man. He really does love you.” I am beyond grateful to have him in my life.

I’m also grateful for friends, and family. What are you grateful for today?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I’m so pleased that you and Tommy spent five days together with positive results, moving the relationship forward. I’m sorry you need to have your thyroid meds adjusted. I hope you get it under control soon. Your anecdote reveals Tommy’s character. He walks his talk. He’s for real. You are very lucky to have found someone like him.

    On this TT, I am thankful for the tip that you and Tommy gave me about Skaterdater. I really enjoyed flashing back to the time period when skateboarding was a brand new craze, popularized by Jan And Dean in their hit single “Sidewalk Surfin’ (Bust Your Buns).” I wish you guys could have experienced youth in the mid 1960s. It was fabulous.

    I hope you continue feeling well and sail into the weekend on a high note. Take care and once again thanks for telling me about that skateboarding film.
