Hi Pineknot and welcome. I just read your story in the thread, and I'm really proud of you for looking elsewhere for more caring doctors. You know your body better than they, and there are doctors out there who will treat you according to your symptoms instead of your blood levels. Be persistent and you will find one.
There is a very helpful Q&A in the Information Archive that can help you pre-interview docs over the phone during the selection process. And you may be able to find someone through the American Assn of Clinical Endocrinologists. Here's their link for Texas thyroid specialists. I'm not sure where Frisco is, so I'll let you find those in your area.

Many of us feel our best when our TSH is between 1-2, but at least one person reports that it needs to be much lower (0.01!) for their comfort level, so it really varies from person to person. The best diagnosis would be derived from an assessment of Free T3, Free T4, TSH (and sometimes Thyroid Antibodies) to get a full picture of what's going on in your body.
And don't worry about "stepping on anyone's toes" on this Board. It's a very supportive group, and we all have our good and bad days so I'm sure you'll be offering helpful advice to someone in no time.
Ask questions, vent, or compare symptoms. We're all in this together.
