Autoimmune Thyroid Disease

An Unfortunate and Lengthy Adventure in Misdiagnosis

Just great

My laptop is dead. I was working on some long articles for my food intolerance site when it died, and I don’t have any other copies of them. I hope the hard disk is intact, but the laptop is fried – think it was caused by an electrical surge. I will now not have regular access to a computer for some time (this one is being borrowed and my partner will be wanting to work on it!).

I am very sorry if I owe you something, it may be a while before I can get back to people, I’m doing the best I can and I’m still gutted I may have lost a lot of work.

Really, I’ve had enough luck lately. I had my car smashed up last week. A month ago my sister developed deep vein thrombosis due to medical negligence (just like me), she had been put on the third generation pill by an idiot who misinformed her as to the nature of the pill and ignored her concerns about having factor V leiden thrombophilia.

This is turning out to be a really wonderful year. I’m worried about three of my relatives, all of whom are on/off antidepressants for what I think is an inherited food chemical intolerance problem. My best friend owes me two apologies now, one for the nasty email she sent, the other for blocking me on MSN messenger… My partner has been going through hell with his epilepsy and “Mel Gibson” re-dislocating shoulder. My mother has been in and out of hospital and can no longer walk or even feed herself. My grandmother died.

I think 2006 will go down in family history as the worst year ever. Failsafe is the only good thing that has happened to me this year. I’m not sure I could have coped with fibromyalgia and eczema on top of everything else.
