I had promised to keep you all posted once I see the results from my latest labs ordered by the new Naturopathic Dr. Judy.

We reviewed them today: it would have been so easy for any of the Dr's (including the Dr in ER) if only they cared at the time.  My thyroid is almost "absent" meaning the level of hormones is next to nothing: and that causes all my symptoms: muscle spasms and destruction, muscle pain and limitations, water retention (including double vision from watery eyes), in my limbs, face, all over, difficulty speaking, breathing, low heart rate, and all kind of other off values in my blood.

Today she gave me another IV (to flush toxins), Calcium, Vitamins B, and D (I was lacking this last one was almost zero), and I am slowly increasing the natural thyroid hormone I am taking.  I am doing it gradually so we won't cause a shock to my system (after all I have been in shock for lack of hormone, I don't really want too much now). She also ordered a Thyroid ultrasound and I was so lucky as to be able to have it today.

Concentrating on getting better for now, and trying to respond to the demands of my job while still pretty sluggish in my head and body.

There will be a time when I will think back to what has been done to me by some of the medical "professionals" and will have to come to terms somehow with that.

Thank you all for your support and faith, and prayers, and I know they all helped me get where I am today!

Love you my friends, have a good night!
