i feel weird

So…I feel weird. Not bad and not sick but just weird. I’ve been taking my T4 (genric Synthroid) since Wednesday, I believe. I hadn’t really noticed any symptoms. Or rather, I noticed symptoms but I didnt want to verbalize anything. yet. Even at my age, I have a fast metabolism and I figured I would . . . → Read More: i feel weird

Thryoid and Mona Lisa

So, I’ll cut to the chase. I started my first dose of T4 Wednesday. And boy it’s been a long time coming, as you know. Finally connected with the gynecologist who was the only doctor to believe in me enough to willingly try a dose of Synthroid on me. In case I forgot to tell . . . → Read More: Thryoid and Mona Lisa

More. sort of

So I’m reading an article from thyroid patient advocate Mary Shomon. In this article she discusses why and when you need an endocrinologist.

Mindfulness or lack of it (with some quotes thrown in)

Several years ago I approached my GP about my insomnia problems. She’s a DO (osteopathic doctor), but at the time I didn’t know it. Dr. H recommended a bunch of different techniques for me to try to overcome the insomnia.
