After a LONG break from SparkPeople, I find myself motivated again.
I went off of my thyroid medication a few days ago. People are telling me this is a bad idea, but I really don't care.
After years of being sluggish, gaining about 7 pounds a year, and feeling crappy I think I just snapped. I have asked my doctor for years if I could please try a different form of thyroid medication, to which she always says "Your numbers are OK". Im a PERSON not a NUMBER. She should listen to how I feel.
So I refused to keep going in for bloodwork and quit taking it.
Ive been reading about adding certain foods to my diet to help boost thyroid function, etc and am going to give it a shot. If I start feeling any worse, I will find a new doctor.
My asthma is finally under control and I havent used my nebulizer in about a month, so I am feeling good right now. : )
