So here I am again.
Still tired, still fed up, still fat.
I had a severe reaction the other night to - wait for it a gluten free sausage 😱 Bought from a well know cheaper shop. One bite and I couldn't breathe, producing lots of bile, felt my throat was closing up. Clamy, chest pain feeling sick . Hubby not helping by insisting I needed an ambulance - which I didn't. Was sick in the end and got rid of the problem . Not had a reaction like that for a long time !
Then all day yesterday feeling tired and unwell joints aching, ankle and legs swollen amongst other things. Barely able to function at work.
Not seeing my endo till September - to be fair I'm so much better than I was since introducing t3 but I'm sure I'm still way under treated,
I know many of us feel this way and in fact some of you are so much worse and I feel your pain . I just think it's so bad that this disease it not given the recognition it deserves so others understand how ill we are, how debilitating it is and how we live with our symptoms everyday of our lives .
So many friends tell me - you should be grateful you are not as bad as some people i.e. Cancer etc and I totally agree with them. But surely it doesn't lessen our disease - a disease which for many isn't acknowledged or treated correctly, never cured and never understood. Will it kill me - I don't know . I'm under attack every day from things that attack my thyroid wanting to destroy it. It causes so many other problems healthwise that nothing is straightforward .
I apologise if I've offended anyone or said anything that is not right . I guess this is me in 'sick and fed up ' mode yet again 😳
