My partner's mother and aunt have been in his ear about levothyroxine and he's driving me nuts.
His flipping mother got put on it when she was asymptomatic and now she bemoans the fact she's "dependent" on it and that you can't come off it once you're on.
I've tried explaining to him calmly that you're only dependent on it if you need it, but that didn't work. He started going on about me healing my thyroid naturally and I explained that if I did somehow manage that, it would show in my bloodwork and my dose would be gradually decreased to nothing. That just made him more annoyed that I'd started the meds before I'd tried.
He's promised twice not to bring it up again and then sees his mother or aunt and starts trying to convince me all over again.
I know it's out of genuine concern for my health but he needs to shut up and realise:
A) I know a lot more about this than him or his flipping mother and
B) I've made my decision so all he's doing is stressing me out and putting a 12 year relationship in jeopardy over 25mcg of medication that I NEED.
Ugh. Anyway, I'm sure I'm far from the only one who's had to deal with this. How did you cope with it? Anyone still going through this?
