Is it my imagination or is there no-one here that has had real success with their diagnosis, treatment or outcome?
How many of us are there on here - let alone on other blogs etc?
I understand that it will, by default, be a place where people are mostly looking for answers but is there a number somewhere of how many people are using this paticular site?
If each of us individually created our 'life histories' of how we came to be here today and collated it somehow surely the medical temple that is the substandard NHS (in this particular dept - not knocking it in other ways necessarily) would have to listen.
Thank goodness ThyUK is working on our behalf but seriously how is it that other self-help forums are full of basic queries and questions on how 'the treatment works' or 'what I can do about this symptom or that issue' while here it is riddled with members of the general public trying to get stable information.
Appreciate that it is a complex subject naturally, but I suppose I'm still in shock that this condition in all of its guises still seems so elusive.
Some charities/forums have professional input or respected members that fully understand the condition and advise accordingly. Not that I'm implying in any way that we (esp those who are admin etc) don't know ourselves and the condition best at all - but why has the subject of thyroid function become completely lost in the midst of scientific endeavour?
Who will ever take us all seriously?
