Now what?? You know something is wrong, you go to the Doctor and maybe he get's it right away...maybe not. Don't count on it. Some Doctors do not get it or catch on right away. Why not, well who knows? All you can do is insist on test, insist on the doctor working with you on this to give you some answers. Insist on them telling you what to expect. And if they can't or will not tell you. Well fire them and find another doctor. Yes , you can find a another doctor to give you some answers. There are some fantastic doctors out there that do everything they can to help you .. then there are some with their hand on the door ready to run out. I have had both. I am not an expert on what is best to do. But, I do know we have a right to know. No matter where you are in this world...you have a right to know what is happening to you and how you can feel better.
I have found that I am less stressful when I can say .."Oh , I never knew that.. that is why I....." or I ca say " i never knew that was why I felt that way." or "So, I am NOT out of my mind.. others have been where I am now." Great grandmother Lita, and her two sisters had some form of Thryoid Disease. I remember them. My grandmother lived with us after my Great grandfather died. He was always so patient with her. She seemed so mean and always frowning. The only time she was at peace was sitting under the tree with my grandfather holding her hand. I use to wonder why he was nice to her. She didn't treat me mean but tried to avoid me and my older brother. Yet she smiled and kissed my younger baby bother all the time....Why was that??? And now after much research into family and Thyroid Disease I am starting to understand. Now I am my Great Grandmother, now I KNOW what she went through. " I am my great grandmother!"
I may have been a child then but over the years older family members have told me stories about her and the other two sisters. Many resented her or avoided her and her sisters. Even with a dowry their father had a hard time getting them married off. Agapita had a small goiter, Candelaria was blind and my Great grandmother Angelita was just starting with her Thyroid condition and was married to her sister's husbands poor nephew who was. He was 36 she was 21. That was old to be getting married in 1889. She was already getting the goiter. They were a well known family here in Trinidad. So there was a lot of talk about them. The first of the Baca's that settled here was a cattle rancher and the house is actually is now a museum
