I called the endocrinologist this morning and spoke with a nurse. She said that the doctor is raising my dosage of thyroid meds (not expected, but whatever) and I am changing meds for the prolactin level (expected and appreciated that the plan from my last appointment was on my file and being carried out without having to remind them).
I am so happy that I have gotten such a great response from the blog so far. Most people are writing me privately. Thanks for reading! My motivations for writing this blog are mostly selfish. I feel like I need support. I know there are so many websites where I can join groups etc. Those were not my cup of tea. I feel like the groups were filled with Debbie Downers and I found reading them draining instead of empowering. No thank you.
Many friends have described me as brave for sharing my story. For those of you who know me well, you know I respond to compliments as follows: "I know!" or "I am wonderful, aren't I?" or something else equally modest. But brave...I just don't see myself that way. Thanks nonetheless.
I also have a request so that this blog really begins to work for me the way I would like. Will you please send the link to anyone you know who is having or has had similar issues? I would love to be able to share with others going on a similar journey presently or previously. Please also comment on the blog, instead of privately, so I look like I have more readers :). Of course, if something is very personal and you don't feel comfortable commenting publicly, feel free to always write me personally. I understand and I appreciate your support.
