Maybe I do need synthroid...

Tuesday, April 07, 2009

So, I was to a point where I was incredibly fed up with this whole thryoid disease thing. I felt like every mood, weight loss or gain, freak out session was all pinned on..."it must be because of my thyroid"...

So, after increasing, decreasing, increasing, decreasing, increasing and then decreasing again (not exaggerating) my medication levels but never getting to a good spot, I finally decided to stop taking synthroid all together with the final conclusion that it was all just bull pucky.

Alas, I have embarked on a real life healthy path of healthy balanced meals, lots of water and more exercise than I've ever had in my whole life and still - very slow results. Plus as an extra added bonus I'm very emotional, crying at the drop of a hat and then spitting venomous evil hateful things at my family.

I called in my prescription this morning. Hopefully I'll be back on track soon and losing what I should be losing.

    I'm going to win this time. It's been a life long fight between me and my fat. But this time I'm going to win. I can feel it. emoticon

    I think TEENIE_BEANIE make a strong point. Natural remedies are fantastic -- but every body is different, so find what is the right balance for you. Have faith in your dr. and that your body and mind can adjust on the proper med and dosage. Educating yourself on supplementation can not hurt as well. I proud that you took the initiative to call in your prescription. It sounds like that was a hard but crucial step for you and your health. Keep us posted on your progress. GOOD LUCK!

    I don't know if this will help you or not, but I was on thyroid meds and then they took me off because my "low" wasn't registering low enough on blood tests, so I started going to a holistic doctor who muscle tested me and proved I was low, and then gave me a supplement to correct it instead of a drug.

    I knew there was something wonky going on, but because it didn't fit the normal low level, I had to seek alternate treatment.

    Perhaps it may help you...

    Just thought I'd leave it out here.

    Take care emoticon
