Its been 3 years since i was diagnosed as having an overactive thyroid....
Recurrent Thyrotoxicosis they call it........... so 'IT' has a name, pity it didnt come with a book of simple instructions.
My readings go up and down, just like that fiddlers elbow, "your in the normal range" just outside the nornmal range" "come back to see me in 6 weeks " blah blah blah
Sound familiar?, dunno about you but im sick, yes SICK of feeling well.............. SICK?
When i was first diagnosed i was prescribed 40mg of carbimizole, along with beta blockers...
Not sure if anyone else experienced a change in their moods , but the bi**h from hell had nothing on me.
Then one day i just couldnt keep my feet still, i tried lying down , standing up, sitting down........ not sure what happened next , but the next thing i knew i was in the Drs office being given diazapan (sp) to calm me, and so began the downward spiral...........
Next came the depression, .........more pills, followed by more pills, i knew i had hit rock bottom if you like when i started scouring the internet for the zopliclone sleeping pills i had become addicted to, but that my Dr would no longer prescribe......... funny thing is (not that it is funny of course) is neither my GP or Endio made a connection with my mental health and my thyroid problems !!!!!
Well tomorrow is D day, or shall i call it T day the day when i finally confront the endio and say enough is enough
is enough (isnt that a song ) hehehe......
I am ready and armed with a list of questions , questions i want answers to
Wish me luck !!!
