Let the Experiment Begin…

I tried this once before, back in 2010, at the Las Cruces VA and told the doctor I had quit the thyroid med and I went 30 days without it… No confusion, no issues what so ever, except… my numbers for that disease went up and the doctor freaked and talked me back into taking it again… now that was 9 years ago and by this time I knew for sure I was missing memory and had some kind of brain injury…. and I knew that brain injury could impact thyroid numbers and I was taking the highest dosage for me, which was 0.1mg of levothyroxine… a drug I absolutely hate, the side affects have never truly gone away… and one of those side affects… the racing heart beat…

So my not taking it, is not as dangerous as the doctor made out, because she didn’t know about the brain injury and just like the doctor I had here, convincing them without evidence is almost assuredly a death sentence… Death sentence to the quality of life… because this damn drug has always screwed with me and after 27 years of being on it… I have had enough!!!

I got up and took my vitals, and the systolic was elevated and everything else was okay, not perfect, but okay.. this new device keeps a record on my Iphone, so if anything does happen, hubby just shows the ER doctor what I have been doing and tells them what I wrote in my blog, or diary… your choice…

I also use a Spiriva Respimat… which I just used, I haven’t taken my supplements, want to make sure after an hour, that the inhaler is not triggering the blood pressure and heart rate issues… 

If you are going to do experiments like I do, be very cautious, analytical and tell your doctor… which I do not have at this moment… hopefully before I see neurology in a couple of weeks, which I called to confirm my appointment and didn’t get a call back… so hope the doctor I fired didn’t cancel that appointment, that would be petty behavior beyond anything Trump has done…

I have waited since 1967 to get these answers and I have had the Neurology appointment since last Sept 2018… it would be crushing not to have that appointment now, but you know what… it wouldn’t be the first time those in authority acted like gods and fucked me over… been there and done that… they have been trying to bury me since I first died… they so hate informed patients…

So in a couple of hours I will take the supplements after I am sure the inhaler is not triggering the BP and race horse heart rate… I tried this test before with this inhaler, and it didn’t, but I need to be sure, or my experiment is for naught…

I just know, last night, up and down, toss and turn and sleep, I could curl up right now and take a nap… but, not in my schedule today… today I plan to exercise harder to get the cardio going, like I did in the military… go walk a mile and half with the dogs and just enjoy my day free of that damn thyroid med….

Honestly… I wish the college educated would listen, leave their attitude and body language at home and just do the job we hired them to do… use the education they paid so handsomely for…. that is my hope… and as always…

Hope springs eternal… Should be an interesting day….

Never do what I do without seeking professional advice from a licensed doctor… I have done things like this for over 20 years trying to get answers…. guess you could say….

I have always been looking for Margie…
