Would you believe I'm still waiting for that test! Chasing it up again today after an outrageous letter from my doctors indicated pretty strongly that they are a complete shambles there. (more info on my blog if your interested) CBT is cognitive behavioural therapy, apparently has been helpful in some cases of fatigue syndrom...

hi both of you, I love both your handles and thanks so much for taking the time to answer. I will Goggle James Wilson. I didn't even mention the adrenal exhaustison diagnosis to my endocrinologist having seen how contoroversial it seems to be but spontaneously he said he wanted to run more checks on my cortisol, "it's been tested before but we ...

I was diagnosed with hashimotos 18 months ago. My thyroid hormones levels now look good (upper end of the range for FT3 and FT4, TSH less than 1) but I still don't feel great.

hey Hearrtt honestly love, throwing up is a really bad idea. even a tiny bit. it can cause all sorts of problems with your teeth, your breath, your skin and your overall health, it's so not good for you. And if you are feeling like you are revolting and too big and nauseaus, well something's not right is it? Sometimes people can get a bit hys...
