Letter to doctor about self-medicating

I have been taking Thiroyd for 6 weeks now and am starting to feel great. As it is nearly time for me to submit my next prescription for levo I have been wondering how to tell my doctor I am self-medicating. I found a sample letter on the STTM website and thought about using that, asking that it be placed in my notes. My daughter who is suffering from chronic fatigue and severe B12 and Iron deficiencies and is now also self medicating, told me of incidences she has read about on her health forum of people being 'struck off' from their GP practice when they have admitted they are self-injecting B12. Before I take action, I would love to hear of some of your experiences of telling your doctor you had taken your thyroid health into your own hands. Thank you.
