Glad you made it home ok! We were concerned about you! I am so sorry to hear of your disappointment though, but please don’t give up! There are so many amazing things docs can do nowadays. Thank God for those caring, wonderful human beings! I can tell you you missed out on meeting two wonderful people(Lynn and Mark), but we understand and know that it was out of love and concern that we were persistant in trying to get you to stay with them! Nothing more! We even went so far as to call Doctor nancy to see if she could make some sort of suggestion as to how to help you! That’s what we do!
Jake will be happy to know you are home in one piece and we will sleep better, too. BTW, I lost sleep over you, woman! LOL!
Keep in touch and we’ll help if we can!

I just got my issue of Woman’s Day magazine. There is an article in it about thyroid disease titled “What’s wrong with me?” The article is fine, but I am quite disappointed that in the Sourceline, it does NOT list the NGDF as a source. Every time I give an interview (and there have been many) I always list the other thyroid organizations. It is both a matter of professional courtesy, and the fact that we cannot help everyone. When we are excluded, I always get my feelings hurt–and that is embarrassing. If any of you want to write, their e-mail address is “WOMAN’SDAY@aol.com”. I will be writing to ask that they add us to their list of resources for any patients who happen to call in for more information. In the article there is to be an online chat on Wednesday, May 26 at 8p, ET. It looks like the directions are: go to keyword “Woman’s Day” to enter the Woman’s Day Chat Room. It should be a very interesting experience. Dr. Riddah Arem is a thyroidologist at Baylor University in Houston.AnonymousMay 10, 1999 at 12:42 pmPost count: 93172
On the Today show May 1 they had Dr Stuart Lewis from the NYU School of Medicine. I can’t remember the exact topic they were discussing; cause ya know if I don’t write it down it is lost. Anyway he mentioned that people who suffer from a low/hypo or a high/hyper thyroid sometimes experience depression. There are real physiological as well as psychological reasons for depression and its severity. I felt he was speaking to the fact that a person should get more than one opinion and sometimes we have to educate and empower even our own family practioners. After all we know our bodies the best.
