THANKS for all the educational sites. That really is our #1 defense . . . educating ourselves AND listening to our bodies.

Could you have adrenal fatigue? Just a thought. And what was your antibody titer?

I hate when "the labs are normal" but you feel cruddy!

Keep connected here and hope you feel better.

Love is the root of all things good in life.

I don't have Hashimoto's (joined the team to support a friend), but I do know what it feels like to want my life back. And regardless of what your diagnosis may be, all autoimmune diseases have the same roots.

While it's not an immediate answer, perhaps this following information will give you what you need to get back what you've lost:

If you've never before participated in a FREE on-line educational event, let this be the first:
Betrayal: The Autoimmune Disease Solution They’re Not Telling You

"This documentary is crucial for you if you know someone with autoimmune disease, have it yourself or simply want to be proactive and prevent it. Do you have someone in your life that is suffering with rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, celiac disease, thyroid disease such as Hashimoto's, dementia and Alzheimer's? Or are you yourself facing a life-debilitating disease? This project leaves Dr. Tom O'Bryan's hands after 30 years of clinical research, patient care and relationships and it goes out to the world at large to change the face of autoimmunity."

This exclusive event starts on November 14th at 6:00pm PST and 9:00 pm EST, US Time.

Each episode will air for 24 hours, and then the episode will be taken down to make room for the next, so be sure mark your calendar each night so you don’t miss a single episode.

Here’s each of the breath-taking episodes you’ll have the opportunity to watch each evening:

Nov 14th: Episode 1 - The Autoimmune Epidemic: Root Causes and Solutions
Nov 15th: Episode 2 - Intestinal Permeability: The Gateway to Autoimmunity
Nov 16th: Episode 3 - The Microbiome: Where Health and Disease Begin and End
Nov 17th: Episode 4 - Autoimmune Diseases of the Gut: The Role of Food and Digestion
Nov 18th: Episode 5 - Environmental Toxins: The Hidden Drivers of Disease
Nov 19th: Episode 6 - Autoimmune Diseases of the Brain: A New Approach to Neurology
Nov 20th: Episode 7 - Case Studies: Bringing it All Together

From my own experience with on-line learning, there is no one better than Dr. Tom O'Bryan for making complex concepts easily accessible to the average person. His own integrity shines through everything he does. Listening to him has ben a life-changer for me.

I wish you the best!

Dr. Jason Fung: "Holy consensus, Batman. With so many 'experts' from Michelle Obama to the USDA to virtually all of the medical professionals (including doctors and dieticians) agreeing that 'Eat Less, Move More' is the way to go, you might think that it is 100% unquestionably true. But here's a queer thought... if we all agree that we know the cure for obesity, and we've spent billions on educations and programs - why are we getting fatter? In other words, why does this 'cure' suck so bad?

I have had Hashimoto's for more that 20 years, and up to the last year or so it was pretty much under control. This summer it got really bad. Freezing all the time. Exhausted no matter how much I slept (which wasn't usually a whole lot). And itchy and covered in hives and rashes. Dr. tested for Lyme, which came back negative. Then I went back to work in September (I am an Elementary School Librarian), and I can barely make it through the day.

I need to nap when I get home, but that makes it harder to sleep at night. I can't see straight. Can't think. Can't remember how to do my job.

All blood work came back normal. Dr. prescribed Zopiclone to help me sleep. It does, but increases the brain fog.

So I go see an Internist today, and he is testing for Lyme again, because it might have been too early last time. And sending me for a sleep study. And repeats what the GPS says about it "can't be the Hashimoto's because your levels are fine". Says it sounds like Chronix Fatigue, and wants me to do Graded Exercise Therapy. Which will be tough to do when the only motivator I have is myself, and she backs down the minute I get back home from work.

So, I'm looking for some ideas, suggestions, and support in trying to get at least some semblance of a life back.
