Angry ok, here goes ...

i sleep 24/7 (i only get up to eat -- and read the posts), twitch, gulp when i swallow, my muscles are wasting, i can barely speak, i'm fighting depression, i'm sweating, can't read/watch tv (i tried to watch "chicago" last nite, was fairly successful at it, but at one point, when i was going to get a glass of ginger ale, i tried to stand [broken hip], farted, fell, and couldn't get up again) ...can things get worse?

i'm calling my endo tomorrow but have an appt w/him on thursday, so i don't think much will happen between now and then ...

but thanks for the hint about fluoride -- nary a drop shall pass my lips again ...


ps: i wonder how they do that -- dance, i mean? a couple of years ago we went to the broadway show "all that jazz" with bebe neuwirth, and i was just astounded -- i can BARELY get out of bed ...

JB....I am so sorry this happened to you. It would be nice if your dr could take you in tomorrow. Tell him what happened. (((((((hugs)))))))) I hope you get better soon. It is so sad to see how many ppl suffer from that dang thyroid. It is even more sad to see so many ppl think very little of those who suffer from it. May the good Lord above help heal you.-Roni

Post could have been worse if all of us had been there to hear you fart and see you fall. LOL!!

Seriously though, I do hope your doctor finds some relief for you. Life is too short to suffer this much.
