Just Me

Hi! I'm currently having several health issues with my thyroi. The levels have been way off when a P.A. Diagnosed 1st a 'too high' thyroid, then 2 months later a 'too low' thyroid She inadvertently threw me into HYPOTHROIDISM. I'm seeing a new Endochronologist now and he is excellent. Professional, intelligent & compassionate. He knows his stuff. We had a 2-hr meeting on our 1st meeting he listened to every word and question I had. We're working now to get my Throid straightened out.... The last 8 months of being hypothyroid were the most depressing in my life.

I'm also Bipolar. Have been all my life have been on Meds forever and continent to monitor and self- educate and keep in close touch with my counselor & psychiatrist.

I also have HCV! I squired Hep C in 1987, before they screened for much less knew about Hep C. At childbirth, I hemorrhaged and needed 18 hrs of blood transfusion. 21 yrs later, I was diagnosed with HCV. That was in 2009. In 1992, they began screening blood for Hep C. Until then, they thought the worst was Hep B. A little too late for me!

There's lots mor to tell you about should you actually be interested at all in my crazy life, but I have to stop writing for now ....

I have a Dr appointment!!!!

Hope to get to know some refreshingly new friends here. Life is lonely when you are loaded down with disease & live a pretty meager existence!

Later, good peopl!

Plz. Forgive typos, I'm rushing on an iPhone!!

  • Priscillla,

    Just saw your post, I think we might both live within a few hours of each other. How are you doing? I know what it is like - I have Hashimoto's. How is your new endocrinologist? If you like him, would you tell me where he is located? Hope to hear from you, and hope you are doing better.

  • Klagh,

    Just now saw your post. I'm feeling a lot better with a correct dose of Synthroid now...NOT Levothroxine. Tho' the Levo is a generic of Syn, there IS. significant difference. At least enough so that my Endochronologist insists the pharmacy only gives me the Synthroid. I have no complaints. He also put me on Estrogen & Premarin.....he said because I've been post menopausal since 2002 and bipolar 1 (all my life), and the depression was literally getting out of hand. Then he had me get a bone-density scan done, and it only, luckily, turned out that I'm osteophrenic.....don't have osteoporosis - yet.

    He was very thorough, and I'm pleased with him. I'd like to send you his name & #.....but am not sure they'll 'let' me do that on here. Maybe they'll let me give you my email, and you can write to me & we can share more...especially with our proximity.

    So, here goes a try...( if it doesn't work, I'll have to figure out how to PM you....Plz let me know...)
