More Medication

10 posts in this topic

Been feeling more tired than usual lately so after a visit to general practitioner and more blood taken, found out I need topping up on tablets for thyroid. I am already taking thyroxine but this needs increasing - I had an inkling this was the problem. Of course, something else is usually found and I am now also on tablets for cholesterol. Only very slightly high - nothing to worry about in someone 'normal', but because we belong to a special group of people, we have to be extra careful.... ;)

Hi Carole,

 

I'm glad that increasing your thyroid medication has helped you feel better!

 

Please keep us posted on the results of your ECG and PFT?

 

(We sure know how to have a "good time"...with respect to your upcoming tests....don't we)?!

 

Here are some "extra" {{Hugs for you}}


Special Hugs,

Hi Debonair Susie,

 

Yes, I certainly have a great social life. I attend 6 clinics and my husband attends 4 with his diabetes, so no-one can say we are the 'stay-at-homes' types !!!

Your social life is obviously as rip roaring as mine consisting mainly of hospital waiting rooms, doctor's waiting rooms, consultant's waiting rooms and so forth!

 

You and your husband having chronic conditions must make you more sympathetic to each other as you both know what it's like to live with illness. If so that's a bonus for you both.

 

Take care.

Hi Carole!

 

Welcome to the Waiting Room, uh, Forum!

 

I had a friend with me the last time I went for a blood draw (on the way to her doctor's appointment :rolleyes: ) and she was astounded when people kept coming up and greeting me by name. Hmmm, could it be I spend way too much time there?!

 

We sure do know how to live the high life, don't we?

 

Warm hugs,
