Ive spent the last week trying to compose a letter to my Endo, MSP, health board etc and feel Im getting a bit emotional.My endo has told me the local health board is withdrawing t3 from its prescribing lists. Ive felt so much better since starting t3 and cant imagine going back to life without it.
I watched Elaine Smiths petition in Holyrood and wanted to ascertain if the recommendation is that t3 should not be withdrawn from those already on it in Scotland until the enquiry has reached its conclusion?
Also in the meantime, where should I seek a supply of t3 without a prescription? My friend is going to Mexico soon and I he could buy it over the counter there? Getting panicky that I may be without t3!
Im trying to compose a letter to my health board and would be grateful of any advice.
Also any comments on these results from Blue Horizon would be appreciated.

Sorry about the long post. Feel like Im going round in circles and dont know where to turn. In the process of changing my GP too. Very disillusioned!
Many thanks in advance.
