      Hi everyone,

      Long time no see.

      A couple of days ago I came by, and I almost wept seeing your names in here. You meant so much to me at a time when I was going through hell to get a diagnose. You were so understanding and caring, and you gave me courage to continue and not give up. THANK YOU for being there and still being here.

      I am getting better and getting acknowledged as having hypothyroidism or rather Hashimoto’s. As you may know Hashimoto’s is an autoimmune disease, and I still feel very connected to you all in this forum.

      This Hashimoto’s was difficult for the doctors to find, and basically I finally found out myself by going through blood tests.

      For 8 months I have been on T4 replacement called Eltroxin, with a slow increase and I am now at 100 mcg a day.

      It turned out that all my unspecific symptoms did indeed relate to Hashimoto’s. They have mostly gone away now. When meds are optimal, I have no symptoms whatsoever, except when I exhaust myself. Neuropathies are gone, walking difficulties gone, memory is back, etc. I am back, and I love being myself again.

      I am back to work full time, and though I do get very tired, I am very happy to have my working and social life back.

      I have even started doing exercise – i.e. line dancing, and I enjoy it very much though I am careful not to overdo it.

      Love to all of you from
