Ray, congrats on your good "sugars".

I had to get a needle biopsy of my thyriud back in 2009 and while it was a bit uncomfortable it was not painful. My only problem was that they didn't get enough material for a successful culture and I had to go back and get it done a 2nd time.

Ray, you might NOT need a major surgery either if the results of your biopsy come back showing no cancer.

Please do not add to your depression by borrowing troubles from the future which may not come to be!

You also seem to be too hard on your endo. She is not capable of seeing that many patients, and if she says she cares for you, what is the tangible, concrete, evidence that she does not?

God's best to you

idn if my reply went threw jay but its not lookin good with my thiriod cause the dr said its oversized and it feels weird when I swallow and I don't think my endo cares based on the fact she yells at me when my sugers r good ik 151 and above is high but for sum 1 as hard headed and stubborn as me 200 n under is amazing I also think she don't care cause she sees me very fast she don't even sit down so yeah I get the vibe she don't care

Yo Ray! I have to get eye injections because of diabetes…well suck it up together. A needle in my eye…I'm awake…they just numb the crap out of the eye with numbing drops. Thank goodness for them. This crap sucks but we have the power to help ourselves be a better diabetic …you're not a number only unless you wanna be. You're #1 in my book…brutally honest! Get that thyroid out!!!

Hey rayray,

Nice to see you my friend.

Sounds like you have a lot going on, and a setback with the thyroid problem. I am glad you are top of this. It's not good news, but at least you will be getting treatment.

I get the sense that you are feeling pretty discouraged. I am sorry you are so down. I understand.

I just want to encourage you to take good care of yourself. Focus on what's good in your life, like the people you care about. Get lots of support. Make plans to do things that you can enjoy and that add quality to your life. Spring is coming!

And stay in touch with us. Keep us posted on what's going on with you.
