I want to share my journey with you as Im so happy and positive about the rest of my life.
I was always an anxious child covered in eczema but at 14 my life changed when I started my periods.
I became depressed, angry , tired, with bladder urgency, my periods were erratic and stopped at 19 to 23 yrs old.
I developed eating disorders ,suicidal thoughts and an adversion to people.
By 22 I was on 75mgs of antidepressants, tamazepam and diazepam.
I was unable to have children and by 31 had given up all hope after several failed IVF attempts.
By 38 my marriage was over my family had abandoned me and I had debilitating periods and incontinence. I was bankrupt and the housing benefit didn't pay the rent.
I was on 150mgs of antidepressants, 75mgs of thyroxide and sleeping tablets every night.
By 45 I'd attempted suicidal 3 times, had my gall bladder removed, had botox to my bladder 3 times and my womb had undergone an MEA... I was also on medication for IBS,GORD, and pain killers for everything else... then my flat burnt down and I was homeless for 7 months.
At 49 I weened myself off antidepressants and then I started to feel like death warned up.. my stress and anxiety went through the roof as did my insomnia and incontinence ( I was peeing every 20 mins ).
By January this year age 51 , I couldn't sleep at all and I could hardly move due to severe fatigue, my face and head looked like a lizard , my GORD was burning acid in my chest ,I had no appetite , and any food I forced myself to eat would either pass straight through or be vomited up .. I was on 150mgs of thyroixde .. even 4 x 7.5mgs of sleeping tablets didnt work..
I felt I was going to die. My 9th GP was not interested.
Did blood test after blood test and said the same thing " it's your thyroid " !!
I went to Dr.P and he suggested that I was probably born with hypoadrenalism and hypothyroidism.. my body temperature was averaging 35'c .
I stopped thyroixde.. as it was giving me toxaemia and gave up gluton and lactose and started on Adrenavive II and Metavive II .
That was 28th January .
Today I'm working full time again, running my own business. I'm no longer in bed after 4 hours of being up. My stress and anxiety of a lifetime has gone.. my IBS, my GORD and scaly skin gone.. sleeping is resuming to normal ish as I have to pee every 3/4 hours so have to get up during night and my body temperature is 37'c,
I work , walk the dogs , dig the garden , meet friends, go shopping , things I've not done for the last 3 years..
I've got my figure back .My doctor told me in January that I couldn't live without thyroxide ..
Well guess what I am !!
and feeling the best I've done since 14 years old ...
Some of the posts on here have been derogatory about Adrenavive and Metavive but I can tell you it has worked for me and is readily available here in the UK.
I'm now on 3 tablets of each a day - plus some vitamins .
So that's my journey . The first 4 weeks wasn't easy but every week has seen an improvement.
Thank you for reading it .
My ex husband who is still a dear friend says he's never seen me looking and sounding so well.
