I was at the doctor today for my thyroid results. My FTF4 TT4 results I cannot remember the exact figures were normal but at the lower end.
The doctor said the other results were OK but she didn't have the figures but they must be OK because a box had been ticked.
I was in tears I have also recently developed reactions to food. I have had problems with my hair, nails, weight, dry skin, pain etc for a long while. Recently my dry skin has got a lot worse and I have psoriasis on my scalp and in my ears. I have a naturally oily skin it is a genetic thing but recently I have got noticeably dry patches on my face, my lips and eyelids are peeling. I can't wear make up as my skin is so dry.
She told me it was because I was stressed, I suffer from PTSD but I have done so for many years and I know how it effects me but I am not stressed it is my body that's stressed but she wouldn't listen.
She agreed to do bloods for allergy testing and to redo the thyroid test and sent me a way with a prescription for antihistamines.
By the time I got to the chemist I was crying my eyes out. I never cry but I feel so ill. I got more information from the pharmacist than I did from the doctor.
I have been offered a new job. I can't believe my luck especially when i did not apply for it.. It will be hard work which is OK but I can't take it unless I know that I will be able to do it. Reputation stands for more than any qualifications in my profession and I just do not know what to do.
I seriously thinking of paying to see someone.
This is far more debilitating than PTSD at least I know how to deal with that..
