Yes, why does your doctor say that? What are your symptoms?

Everything is changing-due to,Covid-19? Or due to.economic losses related to,politics?Hard to say, but we all needto get the best,advice we can find to stay healthy and on top of this shakeup.. Try not to quit and not to give in to depression. Do you have a good friend with whom you can talk this out slowly?
Perhaps you can walk this out in a lovely park? What are your medical options?(nurse practioner? Exercise physiologist? Clergy?)). New directions can be refreshing and clear your head. Good luck.

Jake Duck 1: I have no knowledge of klonopin caper but your response being beyond “bazaar” even for you (I think you meant “bizarre” is the best laugh of my day!

Thu, Jul 23 2:05pm · Cancer Survivor Guilt in Cancer

Marvin: Thoughts like this wear you down! I am lucky I don’t have COVID 19! How life and luck play out in the human community is, I believe arbitrary. You can help others but you can’t take their place. Glad you shared,though. A lot of people are feeling guilt about being well when others aren’t well.Do what you can,where you can, with whatever resources you have. Be glad you can. You have given me energy for this day.

Sun, Jul 5 1:28pm · Looking for young people with Graves Disease in Autoimmune Diseases

I have had diabetes for quite a # of years and two moves ago (in St. Louis) had a doctor who was an endocrinologist and wanted my A1c to be below 6. I was in my 50s At that time. Now, in my late 70s , I have a nurse-practioner who told me recently that below 8 was good. My eyes are full of matter which I wash out every day. I wear glasses and have regular eye check-ups. I have had ovarian cancer and a hysterectomy. Also little spots of breast cancer. I have no information about Graves’ disease. I do think I am getting arthritis but I am visiting a physical therapist next week, and I do admit that I like sedentary activities rather than walking,etc. I started the sitting trend after cancer surgery because I was afraid of falling. Just speaking up now because I feel tired all the time! Any comments welcome. PS Justgot put on 25 mcg of Synthropol before breakfast and it seems to make me more lethargic.

Excellent! I feel relieved for you,don’t you? A diagnosis by a recognized doctor is the first step,to recovery. That doctor will stay with you,advise you, and help to,lead you toward recovery. I have recovered from two cancers because of regular and sustained care and encouragement. If you have questions ask them. If you are not satisfied with the answers ask other doctors recommended to you. There is some excellent work going on to defeat cancer. Stay positive.

I understand your anxiety, especially in this age of corona virus. I have been having pain on the inside of one knee which I have been attributing to neuropathy as My diabetes is soaring due to nervous eating. I have experienced different doctors saying different things about what to do! I think your best bet is to consult another doctor(s). Good for you for posting on this board. You will get measured,experienced, and common sense advice.
