PTSD & TBI & Medication….

I told doctors for decades… I can not tolerate most man-made drugs, including antibiotics… for some reason they make me suicidal…. but there are times in life, when you have to take a drug, because not to do so, could be life threatening…

I said could be….

In 1993 my doctor put me on thyroid medication, because all of a sudden my thyroid wasn’t working right… I knew of the cholesterol issue from March AFB, before my divorce… and nothing came up on thyroid OR…. pre-diabetes…. but in 1993, it did…

Didn’t think anything of it, until Margie started waking up and last year my thyroid started reversing itself….. the same time I got my memories back…. now if you know anything about neurology, you know that TBI can cause the two problems I am talking about and this is an important subject…. mostly because of the TBI, PTSD, medications and the brain….

When I had surgery in Feb, it was major and the first thing I did and it’s the first time I ever did this out of the dozen surgeries I have had… so this is pivotal….

I told everyone involved with that surgery… I HAD A TBI and that changed everything… it changed my recovery after surgery, I remember everything… it changed my recovery after I got home, it changed all aspects of this surgery…. BECAUSE… I told them I had a TBI and I had no proof… just my memory of the assault…. but, the doctors simply said, so you are a lite weight when it comes to drugs…. Finally someone got it and what a difference….

My husband will tell you every surgery I have had in the last 24 years, was awful afterwards and I mean awful, throwing up, constipation, headaches that would not quit and recovery took me 3 times longer than it should have…. all because of the TBI’s that no one bothered to tell me about… Circle of silence is no more….

Now what has this to do with right now… if I am right and my thyroid and pre-diabetes are related to TBI and it is not uncommon for the symptoms to appear years after the TBI and that is what happened to me…

The dosage of thyroid is wrong for me, but my blood work says differently and yesterday… I let the doctor’s office know… I can’t take the drug… it was as if I had drunk 50 cups of coffee… it was that awful… and it’s all because my thyroid is not genetic, it is TBI related….

Catch 22… you really need the hormone… and the ENDO doc at El Paso tried a variety of meds and I couldn’t tolerate any of them…. and that was before we knew about the brain injury…

If you have a TBI and are going to have surgery…. TELL SOMEONE AND EVERYONE…. It made a huge difference in my recovery from this major surgery in Feb of this year…. and if you think you are having issues with a mediation and you have a TBI or PTSD…

SPEAK UP… psychic the doctors are not… I know some of this will make no sense to some… but those of us with PTSD and TBI… we get it, because we are living it….

I Remember… Margie….

Margie was born into a typical christian military family... Her story is anything but typical... Domestic violence, rape, attempted murder and all done while my dad served in the U. S. Air Force and they buried the truth... then my own children impacted by Air Force cover up while I am active duty.... Rape, Attempted murder, domestic violence and discrimination in the name of the United States Government... and it is still happening as I write... just look at Trump, Kavanaugh and Thomas.... Circle of Silence is no more....
