So I went to the Dr on Tuesday. Mostly because I hadn’t been since January and I wanted my NP Accella thyroid refills upped.
The Dr was snarky with me, as usual. I told her I didn’t feel any different on the hormones, so I stopped taking them. She snapped at me that my labs were obsolete then. Fine, so be it. She didn’t suggest I start taking them again.
I told her, I feel good, but the weight and digestion issues are killing me. Her response had tears of anger and frustration welling up in my eyes. I fought them back and took her lashing. She told me, “you are getting older, and you have a slower metabolism because of the hashis. Move more, eat less.” I pointed out to her nurse that I didn’t have a weight issue until I was under her care for the last year.
I wanted to scold her and tell her to go back and read my file. Yes, I have scaled the running and workouts back, but I still move alot more than your average person. I eat cleaner than your average person.
I started taking LDN again a couple of weeks ago for inflammation (in AM, because I never got past the sleep issues on it), along with diatomaceous earth for my tummy. I feel better. I’ve lost 6 lbs. It’s far from where I need to be, but it’s progress.
New Dr doesn’t prescribe drugs, so I will be using him for general care and current Dr. for the LDN and thyroid meds only. Current Dr. ordered a new thyroid ultrasound (been a couple of years) and some different lab work. We will see where this goes.
On the way home, in the horrible IH35 traffic, I had a fender bender and my pretty car is now damaged 😦 That was just icing on the cake.
It’s a good thing I have such a wonderful boyfriend. He took me to dinner, where we enjoyed the rest of the gorgeous day and each other’s company. I almost forgot about the car and my Dr appt.
