I just got an email from a friend to put a few things in perspective....Advanced stage breast cancer...Real bummer. So here I am with a bothersome issue in my thyroid, but all in all have a much better prognosis than my friend. It is sobering to think that by this time next year, I should have a stable thyroid- assuming they figure out what is wrong. My friend needs a miracle.
So I look at what I have been through, and even though it can be downright discouraging, I am not giving up.
I wanted to get help before I left for the States, but the found out that there are no endocrinologists within an 8 hour drive of here....Kind of crazy, but then again I trust the divine direction of God. I am looking to hear from a friend of mine from New Orleans to set me up an appointment to see an endocrinologist.
My immediate problem is that I have a throat infection that is not leaving me alone. I have taken Cipro and Amoxil for 7 days now. I am still not able to swallow right, and now my voice is hoarse. It is so annoying, because every time I start to talk for more than a few minutes, my throat starts to close up.
I am not sure what to think about all of this.
