Erin was feeling suicidal and had been poorly treated by three doctors before she found STTM, a new doctor, and genuine hope!
For the past 6 months, I have felt awful and have been passed around by three doctors who did not take me seriously. I felt like I was going to die and it got even worse. I had NO hope and felt close to being suicidal. I was experiencing severe symptoms of hypothyroid and severe anxiety.
I was at my breaking point when I found the STTM website. I did exactly as it suggested, found a compounding pharmacy and went straight to the pharmacist and asked her who prescribes desiccated thyroid. Come to find out SHE herself had Hashimotos! She told me that she was brushed off by endos and that she was going to see this particular DO in town.
I immediately went over to the DOs office (crying with despair) and they fit me in specially the next day! I had my appointment today and when I walked into the room, there was your book sitting on a side table and I just cried. I knew I was in the right place. The DO was amazing and has had extensive experience with adrenal fatigue and thyroid issues. I truly believe I will be ok now.
The funny thing is that I am trying to apply to PA school but this whole experience has made me think twice and possibly head in the direction of more holistic medicine.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for saving my life!
P.S. I am adopted and really didn’t know any of my health history, so after reading your website I decided to contact my birth father to ask about my health history and he told me (yesterday) that BOTH my birth mother and her sister have Hashimotos disease. I was in shock. And that is what the DO suspected today as well. It feels so good to know that I wasn’t going crazy after all.
