Hey girlfriend! I caught your post on Sue's thread about Armour users. Yes, I am a gardener, and you guessed it--I can't wait to get outside! Though I've gotten out a couple days, for us here in the Rocky Mountain area it's still a bit on the cool side and we've had lots of rain... sigh...

Anyway, yes after several years of ups, downs, hospital emergency rooms, different meds., tiral and error,feeling ok but not great, etc. etc. etc. I think I am finally at the right dosage for now. It's sure taken a long time though, but persistance does pay off! I also have followed up with lab figures for when I am feeling this well so I know what my lab numbers should be at 'when' (unfortunately not 'if') my thyroid dosage needs change. I know about where I need to be on a range to feel good, so hopefully next time round, I can shoot for good range numbers no matter what the actual dosage is and tweek accordingly. I imagine as I age and my thyroid deteriorates my dosages will need to change. If I can keep myself at about the same place on the range with the dosage changes, hopefully I'll continue to feel well.

I do pop into the board every once in a while just to see how everyone is, but don't post very often. Thanks for caring!

Re: Midwest

You probably know how refreshing it is to hear success stories, RM. It sure took you long enough, didn't it? Please mention the need for more tweaking under your breath ... lol Neither of us wants to go there again, do we?
It's good to hear from you. Enjoy that CO sunshine and nature this summer!

Thank you for your kind words, Applepip. You're sweet to offer them. Good luck to you with your treatment!
