Jyaghnutt! Very happy to hear that all is okay with Smackl. How frightening!

Re: clowns being scary: this subject immediately reminded me of a fantastic quote of Jack Handey's..... . ..... . .

"To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started, and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus and a clown killed my dad".

:huh:

:lol:

All right, and another frightening individual, at least to me: Justin Bieber. Somehow, he is sickeningly terrifying to me. Jyaghnutt, you are likely the only one 'round here with a girl young enough to be insanely obsessed with this sixteen-year old singer. This clip may be funny only to you, for that reason - - it features Gordon Pinsent, world-renowned and awarded Canuck thespian, reading from Justin Bieber's recently-published autobiography (the kid is sixteen. . .... . . ..and he's come out with his life story) :lol:.... . . . . . .....

Well, we do all know who Justin Bieber is . . . I can nae stand him . . . or his hair. I am lucky that my daughter does not go ga-ga over any young stars. She does like music, but she likes the songs, not the stars . . . and I don't believe that Justin has made it onto her ipod. Loved the clip . . . especially the part about the hair :lol:

These teen boy idols always sort of creeped me out. Even when I was the target age. We had Leif Garrett and we all know how well his life turned out ( still battling drugs 30 years later). Donny Osmond was the only one that turned out Ok.

Political rally was fabulous. I'm really not into being in crowds, or politics, but it was a lot of fun watching people respond to someone they liked. And Obama laughed when he got woofed at (UW mascot is the Husky). I am completely exhausted, in part because I got up early to get there early, and in part because being around all the energy really wipes you out.

I agree- Bieber Fever is is a bit much and I was shocked he published a book. I'm not against young talent but this seems over the top!

I'm with you with the haircut. My son came home from college for the first time this weekend and immediately wanted a haircut because he felt "Bieberfied."

    • Thanks so much! i really appreciate knowing that you would terrible if your number was similar to mine. I tell you, I really thought I was "okay" before I frequented this site. But the more I read about people's symptoms, and them improving, I keep comparing myself to them. And realizing I'm not quite ok. In fact, there's a lot that could be better. thank you both for arming me with more knowledge to approach the doc with. I do wonder if I'll ever be back to my old self. My husband sometimes comments on how different I am than I was when we were first married- super motivated and energetic. 
    • Hi Victoria! Gemini is right, you need a full thyroid panel in order to really see what is going on with your thyroid.  The remaining tests are Free T3, Free T4, TpoAb and TgAb.  The last 2 are antibody tests.  Ideally, your TSH will be around 1 and the Free #'s will be in 50-75% of the range.   I feel terrible with a TSH where yours is.  Mine is best very close to 1.  Thankfully, my endocrinologist doses based on symptoms! Start by asking your Dr for the full panel.  Give her all of your symptoms as well as your mom's history.  Hopefully, she is willing to order them for you.  Many Drs will only order TSH or that and Free T4, but you really do need all of them. This site is a great resource for all things thyroid: https://stopthethyroidmadness.com/recommended-labwork/ Good luck and please let us know how it goes!
    • Thank you! ive never just called a doctor and ask for a particular test... how do you do this? Do you have to convince them it's necessary first? i would love for these symptoms to resolve, as I've had a lot of them my whole life. Until I read a lot here, I never thought they weren't just, well, normal. my mom had problems with her thyroid. Had it removed in fact. 
    • What would be helpful, Victoria, is to have a full thyroid panel done because you cannot diagnose anyone with Hashi's without a full panel.  It is more important to see what the actual hormone levels are than the TSH. Those would be Free T3 and T4.  You can have low hormone levels and normal TSH.  Your TSH is not too bad but if it starts to climb any higher, that would be cause for concern for Hashi's.  At least your lab seems to use the newer ranges for testing.  Many labs use outdated ranges that go to 5.00 for a cutoff. When my TSH was a 7, I could barely drag myself out of bed in the morning. I have Hashi's and your symptoms are a laundry list for it and Hashi's is very common with Celiac Disease.  You can start having Hashi's symptoms long before the blood work goes off.......like Celiac.
    • With the 3 positives that you have, Jenna, you have Celiac Disease. Positive tTg and EMA is a slam dunk. At this point, if you do the biopsy, you don't need it for diagnosis.  It will be to check for extent of damage.  Considering your health issues, it's pretty apparent you have a gluten problem anyway. Congratulations on figuring out your problem.  Now you can sit back and watch how amazing it will be when many of your problems resolve or improve dramatically. I had the same positives you did and declined the biopsy. 3 years after I was diagnosed, all my symptoms were gone but I do have other AI issues which are not, but they are much, much better just from going gluten free.  Be optimistic this will happen for you also!
