I’ve just got a copy of the letter that my Endo sent to my GP saying that he should prescribe T3 and for that I’m very grateful, however there are a few things in this letter that make me go WHAT???? For a start I’ve never understood why they ask are you married, I mean what difference can that have on a none working thyroid and why point it out to my GP he knows. So if I was divorced, widowed or separated my treatment would be different? Whenever they ask I always want to say, why you offering? anyway during the consultation she must have asked about “activity” well I’m a runner, not a competitive runner just a hobby runner, I love getting out in the fresh air seeing the seasons change, meeting all the dogs out with their owners and as I have biscuits the dogs are soooo happy to see me and to be honest it brightens my day while also keeping me fit, so I explain that I run approx seven miles five times a week, so she says to me, “so how long does it take you to do a mile,” Well I’ve actually never worked it out why would I, indeed the only reason that I know how far I run is that there’s a sign that say 3 miles to so and so, and I know that I run there and back and add on another mile from my house. So I said “I don’t know but I’m not fast,” so in this letter she’s put Mr I runs seven miles five times a week but refused to tell me how fast,” I was like What!! No I didn’t I said I didn’t know, apart from anything else give me a break I’m nearly 60 the fact that I can run at all given that I’ve got asthma, Pernicious Anemia, Hashimoto's and bunions is a nothing short of a miracle, but then again why the hell would how fast I run have any effect at all on any treatment offered and why take offence at my not knowing how long it takes me to run a mile? As I say are they bonkers or is it me? Anybody else get asked bizarre questions by Endo's?
