I want to share a good experience I had yesterday.
I went to see a GP at my surgery yesterday, been feeling tired, very 'alice in wonderlandish' ish anyone out there knows what I mean, light headed, cold , aching muscles, hot sweatins, palpitations and just generally offish, so I got to see a new doctor, mine wasn't available, Thank Goodness!!!, she had looked at my notes, asked about my concentration and muzzy head and listened to me, what a relief, I was getting rather het up about this appointment I felt as if I was imagining it, until I went light headed while waiting to be seen, anyway she said that I was due a blood test and also asked if I would mind being tested for diabetes, as a start and we'll see where we go from there, her words. I told her that I I hadn't put these symptoms together with my thyroid until I joined this site and started researching it and she was supportive and thought it was a good idea that I was informing myself. At the end of the appointment I actually felt a bit better because she'd listened and didn't feel that I was wasting time, my goodness does that help or what.....
There are doctors out there who understand, thank goodness I found one.
