Woochan, I'm happy for you that you have been able to enjoy the festivities this year.
I would like to comment on how eloquently you have voiced your thanks to all of those who are involved in this site for thier help and support or even just sharing thier fears or experiences.
I find it amazing on how just a little comment can help in such a big way. Maybe because one thought they where all alone in the misery of thier illness and suddenly there was something or someone to relate to knowing that they understandmuch sooner rather than later what you are going through, a comfort.
Then there is all the help and advice that is given so freely by so many, each knowing what the other is going through and each willing and trying to help the other to feel a bit better.
I too would like to thank each and every one person involved in this site. I have been 'walking in the dark' for the past twenty years and its only on stumbling on this site that I have had some direction on trying to help myself to feel a bit better.
'Hats Off ' to each and everyone involved and I know that whichever way presents itself to me to raise awareness of our illness I will do my utmost to highlight it. If you dont have it you would never be able to understand what it is like to live with it - But methinks that there are many who don't even want to begin to understand it and are quite happy to continue within the confines of the given existing medical texts, cocooned in cotton wool, quite pleased with themselves for administering the given level of Levothyroxine without even listening to the way the patient feels and suffers and reacts to the prescription. You only have to read the many comments on this site to realise the ignorance of the Medical Proffession regarding us.
I know thier are many working so hard to try and change this attitude and indeed the given boundaries that defines our illness. I wish them well and thank them and hope that thier voices are heared much sooner rather than later.
Thank you all,
