Want to chat with the creator of this site who has the highest knowledge of patient-to-patient experiences and observations?

Hitting a dead end and feeling stuck in your knowledge?

Not sure how to explain issues to your doctor and want ideas for that?

Need privacy & one-on-one encouragement, hope and support from someone who has been collecting all this information for nearly two decades?

Janie A. Bowthorpe, M.Ed. is a thyroid patient activist, patient advocate, author of STTM related books, speaker, blogger, thyroid patient herself, and the creator of the Stop the Thyroid Madness website/books. She is available to do a patient-to-patient coaching/consultation call with you to help you be more informed as to what patients report and observe. Always work with a doctor concerning the information.



1) Via Phone (USA and Canada) and it will be via a PRIVATE NUMBER **Please unblock private numbers or those numbers which are blocked from being seen. Otherwise, I won’t be able to get to you.

2) Via Skype (Everyone else–non-USA) AUDIO-ONLY.

3) Via ZOOM I will email the link right before the call

READ EVERYTHING BELOW about cost and scheduling! It doesn’t work to skip the info below.

  1. WHAT IS THE COST OF A CALL BASED ON? It’s based only on time spent together.
  2. AFTER I REQUEST A CALL VIA THE FORM THAT IS COMING, WHAT COMES NEXT? In 1-3 days, Janie will respond with a suggested day and time. If that day and time works, it’s important to be timely in responding that it works so it’s not given to someone else. If the day and time does not work, it’s important to respond in a timely manner saying so, and we’ll work on another day and time. 🙂 Timeliness is really important since there are always others wanting to schedule!
  3. ONCE I AGREE TO A DAY AND TIME, HOW DO I PAY AND FOR WHAT AMOUNT? You will be sent instructions on how to pay$75 via PayPal, which covers the first 30 minutes or less, and is non-refundable.
    Definitely yes, since payment reserves the day/time for you. If you are not timely, the day/time is not reserved for you, and Janie has the right to offer it to someone else wanting to schedule and pay right away.
  5. IF JANIE AND I GO OVER THE PREPAID 30 MINUTES, WHAT HAPPENS?? Then it becomes a minute by minute charge at 1.95 per minute. For example, 10 minutes over is only 19.50. 15 minutes over is 29.25. 30 minutes over is $58.50, etc. You have up to 30 more minutes to use after the first 30 minutes you paid for...if you want those extra minutes. And you will then receive another email after the call on how much the extra minutes equal, and how to pay via PayPal. That payment is DUE THAT DAY.
  6. IF I WANT TO STAY WITHIN THE FIRST, PREPAID 30 MINUTES, DO I NEED TO WATCH THE TIME? Yes. It’s up to YOU to watch the time and say at 30 minutes you need to stop. If you don’t say so, there will be a minute by minute charge.

HOORAY!! You do not have to have a PayPal account to use the PayPal request–it can also be just an intermediary with your credit card. Your credit card in a month will show PayPal and “Thyroid Call”.
