Well, the comatose exhaustion is back. The weakness is back. The swelling goitre is back. Alongside the blurry eyes, aching legs, bloated stomach and brain fog. The old me is NOT back.
To be honest, I think I've forgotten what the old me is now after 12 years of this s**t.
I am very low tonight. I thought I was managing ok on T3 alone (Tiromel) but it has become apparent that it is no longer working for me. This is despite the fact that I managed to increase my dose to 50mcg. I thought I had become adept at recognising whether I needed more hormone, but I just don't know anymore...
The fact is, I have no more time to work anything out. I have been mandated to this Work Programme nonsense and I am supposed to be looking for a job and fulfilling work-related activity. I can't even get off my couch or make my kid's tea in this state, never mind anything else.
I had been taking Cynomel by Sanofi Aventis before, which I had been managing to get online.This brand of T3 suited me the best but I can no longer access it online anywhere. I am unable to get a prescription for it from any doctor at my surgery despite the fact that they have prescribed Liothyronine (Goldshield) for me. Unfortunately albeit predictably the NHS Liothyronine does not agree with me at all and I feel hellish on it. Why oh why does it always have to be so hard?
Do any of you enlightened people have any ideas on how I can access Cynomel by Sanofi-Aventis? I am prepared to see a private doctor or Endo but they would need to be T3 friendly. I am in Scotland. Dr S would be no good because I would not get a referral. Feel free to PM me. Thanks.
