God I feel miserable. Having spent years being not diagnosed and spending a fortune on endo's and then finding one who was happy to let me take ERFA......I now find myself at square one again.
I am currently taking Naturethroid and it's doing 50% only. WHY,WHY,WHY did they muck about with ERFA. Don't these people get it!!!! Don't they understand that every little change they make affects us!!!
I could shout and weep with frustration!! I've been following the link on STTM and it would appear that even the way they compress these tablets could make a significant difference in the way we absorb them. Not even raising my dosage helped.
I am battling away with Naturethroid and losing hope. It just isn't the same for me. I'm now back to being unable to socialise with my family, friends, walk the dog, go to the supermarket.....look after the kids properly.
Last year I had this extraordinary moment when I was driving the car and I realised that I felt WELL. Not just well but great! And for a brief moment I panicked because I realised that I was going to have to learn how to live FEELING WELL!! I know that sounds ridiculous but it's true. I thought, god this must be how other people feel......every day!!
It was beautiful, wonderful and emotional.
And so here I am, talking to you.....because you are the only people who know and understand. And all those people who should be fighting my corner....my GP, the NHS,
my Endo........are beyond disinterested.
I have sort solace, comfort and reassurance on this site many times. But today it's just about gratitude.............for providing me with a safe place to feel angry and low and frustrated and pathetic!
