Post My Doctor

Saw my doctor today and had to confess I was taking twice the Armour he prescribed. He was cool. He said, "Okay you probably have read up on this more than I have by now, so what do you want me to do?" He's doing the FT3,FT4 and tsh. I don't think I've every had a FT3. He's going to send me out for adrenal testing(he's an MD). Knows I'm going to take care of my ill parents and gave me Valium. I love my doctor. He will call me with results on Friday and he had me give him the optimal #'s for those 3 tests. First dr. in 6+ years that has been agreeable to working with me. Everyday I'm more convinced that I'm going to live. LOL IWL

I finally found a doctor after years like that too- WHAT a relief, I literally jumped out of my chair and waved my hands around excitedly when he agreed to let me try cytomel. I think he got scared when I did that. Oh well, I got my way and it is working wonderfully! Cheers to all the professionals that listen and believe us!!! (pretend the hammer is actually a beer)

I am glad you are happy with your doctor! So, he did give you Valium? When are you leaving to take care of your parents? I am sure that is a very stressful situation for you. It is hard to see your parents getting older and especially if they are really sick. My prayers are with you.

Wow! Sounds like a great doc! My doc works with me like that, too, and I am very thankful.

I am not a doctor, nor have I ever played one on TV...
