Re the Viking Warrior - the blonde plaits are part of the "Hat". I was going to wear it into the surgery this morning. My husband said he would put it on here if I promised to behave!!
Yes - The Doc visit. I planned to see a different Doc, one who I knew was more...er...enlightened. It was great. He said he felt my Doc in Winchester knew more about thyroid issues than he did and he would be pleased for me to continue seeing him AND... that he would provide the NDT as prescribed by aforementioned Doc.. on the NHS!!! Yes, I know - it sounds too good to be true, I can't believe it myself - the 6 page letter probably helped!
The other interesting thing that emerged is that he thinks that I may have GH (haemochromotosis) and took bloods there and then -( himself!!) he said he has never come across anyone who had it in many years - so I hope I am not the first. It is manageable with venosection (blood letting) though, and is genetic - hence GH - but I'll cross that bridge when I get there - hopefully fairly soon. Anyway - some days are good!!! XXX
