Thank you for encouraging me on my blog today! 18 months ago the doctor presented me with two options: either to try lifestyle change, which he said we had to try first, or to stay medicated to regulate my levels. At the age of 25, I did not want to be medicated indefinitely especially for a problem I created! I considered that a non-option, so I did what was needed to make it work.
I do think I am very lucky to have a doctor that insisted on trying lifestyle change first. I think many doctors would just write the prescription.
Thanks again for your thoughtful comment! 912 days ago
