Been off the net for a couple of days cause of
real bad anxiety attacks, and generally feeling
lousy. I go to my Endo on Monday.
Hope I can get some answers. He has taken me off all medication
because he says I’m in remission. He wants to see what happens,
I REALLY HATE BEING A GUINEA PIG!!! All my symptoms
are back in full force. I really can’t take much
more… I just want to feel good for a change.
It is so hard to cope with work, stress, relationships (Thank God I have
an understanding boyfriend. I don’t think I could stand it if
he didn’t understand. Sorry for rambling, but I had to spout to someone

Can certainly identify with your problem. Was taken off all medication on August 1 to see what my true condition was. Had a scan in Sept. Thyroid levels were still up but had reduced some. But between Aug and Sept. I went through severe hand tremors, heat intolerance, nervousness, anxiety and over-emotionalism. By mid-October I was feeling much better. Last test showed my thyroid levels are normal. Those symptoms have gone away and the endo says I’m in remission. So, the point of this long rambling message, is that it might be worth it to be off medication, there could be an adjustment period and you might go into remission. Good luck!
P.S. You are lucky you have an understanding boy friend.AnonymousNovember 10, 1996 at 4:57 pmPost count: 93172
I have felt pretty good today, so no real pattern to when or
why I get axiety attacks, etc. I go to my Endo tomorrow so hopefully
He will have some answers for me. I really an getting tired of this.
I just want to be my old self again.

just needed to get this out. I have had a rotten couple of days here. My wonderful husband has just been diagnosed with bladder cancer. I am so sad and angry! He is a good clean-living loving man, only 47 yrs. old. We are hoping for some reassuring news about the stage of cancer at the doctor’s office tomorrow. After his surgery on Friday, the doctor felt it should be treatable. Guess I could use some prayers. I know we can’t pick our journey, but this one is a tough one. We have a good family and friends to support us, but I think Graves has left me emotionally & physically fragile at this time. I need to find some strength to get through this. Thanks for listening.AnonymousNovember 24, 2002 at 11:30 pmPost count: 93172
So sorry to hear about your husband’s illness. It does sound as if you have a good support network. The treatments for cancer can be difficult, there are a lot of support groups around, see what you can find. And many doctors okay some alternative treatments, not medicine but relaxation and visualtion that can really help. Just check with them first, of course. Sending good strong healing white light your way

I am so sorry for your news. I want to share some info that may help lighten the load. My 73 year old father in law was diagnosed with bladder cancer two years ago. With his weak heart, the doctor wouldn’t do surgery. Instead he was treated with “live tuberculous solution”. I believe it is called BCS or BGS therapy. One of it’s pioneers was a professor here at West Virginia University School of Medicine. Dad would go weekly to the Urologist who would cathater him and infuse the solution into his bladder. He would retain the fluid for one hour, changing positions every 15 minutes to coat the entire bladder. Then he could void. The toilet needed to be disinfected with bleach for 24 hours after that. Would have been better if he had the use of his own toilet (sound familiar). The treatment shows a 80% success rate and has worked for my father-in-law. After one year, he is cancer free, just goes once a year to his Urologist for scope and recheck. Sounded off the wall at the time, but it worked.
Please don’t give up the ghost here! We will all pray for your both! Let us know how things are going from time to time.
