My thyroid has become over active again!
Found out today that my T4 is 74 - it should be between 11 & 22...
I've known for a few weeks that things weren't right, but I was hoping it would all just disappear & leave me alone... Not a chance, it's here to stick around & I've got to deal with it yet again.
I think my body doesn't cope well with stress & exhaustion, so it's time to make some changes.
I know I will recover again - once we slow down & we have now made the decision that the crazy changeovers will have to go...
This Saturday will be our last full day of cleaning & then we can take it a bit easier.
I am really hating work at the moment, probably because I am struggling physically - my muscles are weak, my heart is pounding at around 100 bpm, I am breathless, always hungry & losing weight.
The doctor has prescribed carbimazole again, but I really don't want to take it.
Luckily, I have some herbal tincture left from last year - though I've looked at buying more & it's proving very difficult...
The government have decided to clamp down on the sale of complementary medicines & unfortunately, Bugleweed has been stopped. Apparently, it's an EU decision, but only the UK are following orders...
We think we live in a democracy - well we don't.
Why should I have to buy nasty drugs from my doctor, when I'd prefer to buy from a herbalist?
Why should I be forced into taking drugs that have caused diabetes & bone marrow disorders in so many patients?
I have also refused again to drink radioactive iodine.
I refuse to be used for research.
I will not be pushed into a corner by anyone.
I know my body & I will do what is right for me.
