Finally got to see an endicronologist a few weeks ago and so many of my health symptoms are validated. Problem is there is doom and gloom if I don't remove stress. Told me heart problems are next since all my symptoms from the past 10 years is all stress.
My first impession was, "I love this guy" because he listened, asked lots of questions of me for a full history, and told me what he expected when I come back in 8 weeks. You will lose 4-8 pounds by then, he says. No one has made me accountable like that. So I'm loving his straight up way. It takes a full night sleep to realize the health threat he told me I was facing!
Hypothyroidism and a start of the meds that will take 8 weeks to a full starting dose. My laundry list of symptoms are supposed to all improve. Forget that you can see my scalp, give me just an ounce of energy. I can do anything if I can stay awake more than 12 hours.
Mediterrainian diet, exercise and prayer. That's my goals for the next 8 weeks.....
