      This is my first night on the internet.
      I have read most of your letters.
      I was disgnoised 1992, went through radiation twice,
      finally was told there was no hope…..
      Found a doctor I trusted,had the surgery,
      was home in 26 hours.That is not to say I didn’t go through
      hell. I still do not feel great, but I have hair and 29lbs.
      And a terrible metabolism..but I made it and so can you all.
      Remember, what woman in the world does not want to be hyper and
      and skinny.I need some help and ideas on life management
      after surgery. I ache and feel stiff like the flu.
      I got ulcers from the radiation (Doctors say no known side effcts
      effects,But get real.Lygol’s solution took the finish off my
      kitchen counter…Thyroid Storm was wild..Had that 4 times.
      I just thank God I am here.

        We thank God your still with us too. As for life management I would suggest
        getting to a counsler and talking over how things are going in your life and
        see if there is anything you can change (external or internal) to help with
        stress. Meditation is a plus. I use needle point. Go figure. I’m 43, six
        foot three, 220 pounds and I do needle point. My eye doctor suggested it and
        I find it really relaxing. Not only that but I get some Christmas presents
        out of the way too.

        Find something that occupies your mind and takes your mind off you and problems.
        DO SOMETHING FOR YOU!!! Sometimes I burn medicinal herbs (it’s and indian thing)
        while listening to tribal flute and drum music. I know I am going to get a ton
        of mail so I will say what I use. I use Sage and sometimes a plant called deer
        toung. We buy them at indian pow wows. They are used as an insence not smoked.
        What I am saying is find what works for you. If it means changing the way you
        live so be it. If it means changing jobs so be it. I have said it before that
        your health and your family are the most important things in the world. If you
        don’t have them life can be hard.

        Take control of your GD don’t let it take control of you. It can be done. There
        are hundreds of posts on this BB that prove it is so.

        I wish you peace,
