For almost 20 years I have had symptoms of under-active thyroid. The main ones being inability to lose weight and depression. I was finally put on thyroxine 2 weeks ago.
Last year I fractured my pelvis and it has been very slow in healing almost 18 mths, I saw the consultant last week, he was very blunt and told me to lose weight, he was not interested in my thyroid and said anybody can use that excuse. I left the hospital feeling very suicidal.
This morning I received a copy of the letter he sent to my G.P. and again he has reiterated that I should lose weight before any other doctor sees me.
This has left me extremely distressed and with all the medication I am on I feel that I cannot carry on any longer battling with this disease.
I have taken numerous tablets to help me sleep tonight but they have not had any effect at all I cannot live with these feelings any longer.
