Just over a year ago I walked out of my GP's surgery after being told he didn't believe in any treatment other than levothyroxine and that he would treat all of my symptoms separately. Thanks to having read posts on this community I had the confidence to come straight home and order some NDT on-line. I haven't looked back.
Again, thanks to this community, I learned which blood tests to ask for and which supplements to take. At first it seemed I was taking lots of vitamins etc. without knowing if they were really doing much good, but in the last couple of months I've started feeling so much better. The combination of NDT and the right supplements has transformed my life.
I want to thank everyone who asks questions and posts advice because, despite my name, I'm something of a timid mouse and being able to read so much here and follow links that have been posted has made a huge difference. The reason I'm saying this now? I've just had my Mum to stay and since Mum and tact are practically strangers her visits can be quite stressful. This time, however, I sailed through with a new found serenity so I know it's not just the physical symptoms that have improved.
Many thanks to all of you,
ps: I work from home and so after passing the TUK petition to relatives I felt at a loss as to how to find more people to ask to sign. Inspired by the members who have printed out leaflets I now send a request to each of my customers when I pack up their orders. I've even asked the gentleman at the Royal Mail delivery office who takes my sack of mail each day. If someone as shy as I am can reach out I'm sure we can all get some more signatures.
