is a better day.  I still have the symptom but there is nothing much I can really do about the throat fullness and shortness of breath until I get in to see the ENT and get the pft done.

Problem is I just got a promotion and transfer at the hospital and I am the only me.  No one to cover my work yet.  And I am learning and trying to get my routine down before I trust taking a day off and leaving it to someone else.  Not that I am putting my health on the back burner but I have had this problem for nearly a year now and what is a few more months?

The only thing that scares me is the tsh going up and down so much.  one day it was 2.2 a month later it was 20.0  then we check again mid october.  From what I understand the thyroglobin is the reccurance indicator and I wonder why my doc hasnt checked that out?  

This morning I got my prilosec out of its container and held it up looking at it I actually laughed out loud as I popped it in my mouth almost like im taking an empty pill full of nothing but air as it hasnt changed my symptom not even a little.  I like to remain hopeful that by taking it every day I will one day wake up and not feel like someone has there hands wrapped around my neck..  

I need to remember to have a sense of humor and be positive too.  I know when I start getting all pessimistic it radiates in everything I do.  I am normally the happy go lucky mom sweet to everyone at work but I feel like my medical issues at age 24 have chewed me up and spit me out.

Thanks for posting your journal. I am having a rough time with this whole Thyroid thing. I have NO idea what is wrong with me and can't get into a doctor before April. It helps to know that despite how horrible you feel, you still try to keep up your sense of humor.
