State of Alumiere:
The Doctor I've now wasted 6 months with has decided that even though Armor and Natural Thyroid that included T4 with T3 causes increased pain, falling out of hair, allergic reactions I've never had before, and severe nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, she "doesn't feel comfortable prescribing synthetic Thyroid medication" AKA Cytomel which works without the side effects. This after every appointment we've had I've discussed the fact that I don't convert T4 properly which increases Fibro and Chronic Fatigue symptoms, and I may need to be on Cytomel instead.
And it's 5:30am here, but I caught a cold from my boy, so I woke up coughing like mad. I'm tired, sick and furious, and Doctors can die now. This isn't fucking rocket science, I don't process T4 correctly as we've known for years, but no, we need to try "natural thyroid" - I did, it made things worse, now put me back on the medicine that doesn't do that as you promised repeatedly. Fucking hippie doctor! I'm doing everything else you've suggested including going back to taking 40+ medications, hormones, vitamins, and supplements a day.

Wearing: black microfiber nightgown, the usual necklaces/bracelets, and mohawk twisted into a loose roll around itself. I suspect I'll stay in this all day, probably with added over the knee socks from sock dreams - comfy and warm is the goal.
