So I saw my new Dr. on Tuesday afternoon. It was a long 3 month wait for an appt with him.
A friend asked how it went. I said “well I didn’t cry on the way home.” Not even joking on that, i’ve cried after every single Dr. appt in the last 4 years. A few of them during the appt. It actually went very well. He doesn’t do medications (he’s a PHD), just supplements. Any medication I need, like natural desiccated thyroid (NDT) will come from my PCP.
He was straightforward and blunt. In a caring way. Told me he treat all of his patients like they are family. Came in with a handshake and left with a hug.
He talked to me as an athlete and a sister. Something I haven’t considered myself being for several years.
So there are supplements. Bust out the “old man” pill box again. He was appalled at the hormones I had been on, so I am not going back there. Staying on the LDN and NDT now. Trying what he gave me for 12 weeks.
And then the dietary part. This is the part I am not wild about. Mostly because of what it is. I will do it, because I am more than willing to change what I eat to try to make myself better. It’s all I’ve done for the last 4 years. He wants me to do low glycemic/South Beach 1, 2. BLECH on a diet that is a diet. And BLECH on lowering carbs. I like carbs. I like being healthy and feeling good more.
