(Enough is Enough has since been removed including The Auspicious and The Suspicious)
I hope that everyone who visits this site will take the time to at least take a look
at "Enough Is Enough". I spent quite a bit of time this past week refining the content
of the page to hopefully clarify a point or two that might have been a bit shadowed
in amongst my "spaz session". Well, I was spazzed because I'd just had enough! Still
have, but I'm done "spazzing" about it for now. :)
Anyway, once you've read about what I'm trying to do, I hope that more of you will see
the point and respond by sending your experiences to me. I would very much like to have
a large enough collection to start the "Auspicious / Suspicious Section" within the
next month or so. Maybe we could all have a better New Year for it! :) So, please do
consider writing about this soon, though, once started, it will always remain open to
new submissions. So, if you cannot contribute now, or you are undecided about whether
or not you should contribute, you can indeed contribute later.
As to my updated state of hormone health, I did speak with my endocrinologist's office
this past week, and finally was told he would increase my dose of Synthroid, your
artificial friend. I still find it appalling that I was forced to wait from July to
now to get what I needed. And will now be forced to "wait it out" until this new dose
becomes effective (provided it does) to feel any better. Trying to find the correct
dose you need does take time, but since my TSH was on the rise in July, this was
totally an unnecessary waste of my time and my health. Not to mention that I was
deceived. Why did he say to me in July that my TSH was very close to normal when,
in fact it had gotten higher than the last test? And why did he not raise the dose in
July instead of waiting til the end of September? I will probably never know since the
endocrinologist did not even bother to speak with me this past week. He had his
assistant call me with his orders. Oh, yes! I've still had enough!
As much as I would like to end this week's updates with my usual silly stuff, I guess
this experience has left me feeling not silly. I feel tired, I hurt, and have been very
very cold. I've been back to the crying at commercials thing. I've been getting
confused, depressed, and in general feeling quite unwell - physically and emotionally.
As well as feeling very dismayed at the lack of concern I've been shown. I still feel
there is hope! Just at this point I have to project it further into the future! Lesson
learned! Time to take many more things into my own hands. I very much hope to hear
from many, many, of you! Thanks!
