The Life and Times of a 500 Pound Woman.
Peep, are you familiar with Stop the Thyroid Madness website? I have taken natural thyroid for five years now; I was undiagnosed and untreated for close to 40 years and ended up with massive infections (common symptom). My health was improving -- I think without the thyroid I would no longer be walking; I couldn't even read by the time I was finally diagnosed -- but the stress in my life has set me back. At least I know I can feel better even if I don't right now.
