They are going to regret retiring me on health grounds, nursing did keep me occupied. My Gp told me the other day that he was aware of there being a community of people unhappy about thyroid treatment. I thought after that we could be described as a community but with 50,000 of us and several other websites saying similar stuff, numerous books written and supporting us at least about twenty doctors even if some do it quietly we are a bloody uprising and if it wasnt for the end of legal aid they would have changed their tune ages ago. I don think we are big enough or a lot of us well enough to make a big enough march to get on the news but I am thinking that at this stage we need some public attention and need a couple of celebrities to take an interest and maybe speak publically about the issue. I am up for writing to Jo Brand, I also think Dawn French and Oprah might be interested. Also those magazines like take a break, they have a lot of readers and love these real life stories and is anyone up for writing to Prince Charles to ask if an award can be given to Dr Chandy for his B12 work.( as a side issue) Also anyone know of any celebraties that have had chronic fatigue or thyroid related stuff that can be contacted. We might have to knock on a lot of doors but we need to bring this debate out into the wider public eye and have a public debate about it so that all these silly useless endos and GPs will have to talk thier crap on tele where the whole country can see how irrational they are. Its a lot to do but there are a lot of us so we only need to do a tiny bit each. Anyone up for it!
