They called from the Apothecary (Village Green). My thyroid compound will be ready on Friday.
Dr. Harold Goodman, our osteopath, had a free day and he “made” Guido go to the boat with him! There is our boat, Water Music, a 32′ Grand Banks, at Hartge Yacht Harbor, and we have not been able to sail even once since we bought it over a year ago… At least, Guido could go and see it and talk to it. A great step towards recovery!
Since he was away most of the day and I needed a few groceries, I decided to drive myself to the closest store. I could not believe that it would be so difficult — I had almost forgotten how to unlock the doors and how to set the air conditioning! So, it was a good thing I did it, even though I got very tired.
Dr. Goodman told Guido he also treats patents for thyroid problems, and that I’ll feel better when I reach the higher dosage in two months. They cannot raise it too much at once. Funny — I have been going to him for 12 years to get osteopathic treatment, which has been great, but I never knew he was also an expert in thyroid problems. Anyway, it’s OK as it its now. He does not believe in blood tests, and I don’t rely too much on them either, but they need to be done, especially the ones for adrenal function. Dr. Hedaya does all those.
Tomorrow I need to go and get my weekly B-12 injection, plus having more blood drawn for Lipid panel and Ferritin tests requested by Dr. Hedaya. I am hopeful that now, with the natural thyroid, things will be better, even though it will take time, and I have not been well since my surgery, TEN months ago!!
