As the hours pass further and further from the biopsy procedure, I know I could get a call at any moment. Knowing that, I have such anxiety I can barely focus on anything else and I feel as though I can vomit. The waiting is awful..
Leading up to yesterday’s procedure, I was pretty much convinced I had the worst-case thyroid cancer there is. That’s just the way my mind works.. I would prefer to set myself up for the worst news imaginable, so anything better than that could be such relief.

She didn’t seem too concerned about it, and reassured me that out of 100 biopsies, they would need to do 95 benign tests before they got 5 malignant. She also didn’t mention if it looked suspicious on the ultrasound or if it had any weird characteristics.… Continue reading Biopsy, done.
Well, I got a call from the nurse this afternoon. She said they received my blood work back and my thyroid levels were normal.

Now that I’ve been on 5-HTP for 8 days, I thought I would give an update. The short story- I feel AMAZING! Seriously. I noticed a big difference in just 2 days of taking it. My fog brain was nearly non-existent, I could focus at work, able to get a TON of stuff done each… Continue reading Update
Well, I felt as though this session was more productive than the last. We started out discussing how I feel compared to when I first came to her a few weeks ago. I told her I felt as though my snapping as diminished a bit, but I am physically exhausted. The fog brain is still… Continue reading Therapy #2
