  1. Annoyed and Confused

    Today I got the blood test back. the doctor mentioned hypothyroidism, but my dad said that it is "only the symptoms". How do symptoms come from a blood test? I'm so lost. I don't know what to think anymore. On the perscription for the meds, I saw the letters TPO. I don't know if it's supposed to mean if I have it or if it's only the 'symptoms'. If I don't have Lupus (as I only have an Unofficial diagnosis from a long time ago), and I don't have hypothyroidism, then what the heck is wrong ...

    The other day my brother starting speaking to me about protein and how I don't get enough ... how I need more and blablabla. He starting giving me numbers and how much protein a person needs a day. I know he was just trying to help and I know he loves me, but suddenly it was all just too much. My doctor tells ...

  5. First [Pointless] Blog :) Yay :)

    Well I'm new here and it is awesome to have found a place where people actually understand what I'm going through and also go through it themselves. When I try to talk to those around me about my troubles, I stop after the first sentence when I see their blank stares. Or of course when I get the, "*silence* ..What's Lupus? *blank stare*" response. Oy.
    I know I can't blame them for not knowing about the disease but sometimes it gets so tiring to have to repeat my story. I feel like ...
