Today’s comment of the day…

After years of misdiagnosis and stupid comments from doctors, I began researching and treating myself. Depression symptoms were treated with antidepressants, which never worked. I asked my doctor how to lose weight, he told me to “stop eating… Doh, you think there’s any nutrition there? My lab tests were in the normal range right up until my goiter was so large I could no longer breathe or swallow. After “treatment” consisting of left hemi-thyroidectomy, and Synthroid supplements, I continued to gain weight and feel horrible. The heart symptoms were ignored, instead I was given generic version of Toprol which sent me into heart block. After chucking all meds in the toilet, I noticed I felt surprisingly better. I may need a Thyroid supplement, but I don’t need idiot docs. My recent, current regimen is vegetarian, organic, no soy, no goitrogens, and exercise. I feel better. Blood pressure is now in normal ranges. I’m still fatigued but I will beat this.

Thyrants and Thyraves is a compiled weekly post and discussion about life in the Gland Canyon. This week’s were no different, lots of action. If you haven’t checked it out, give it a read.
