Mary Ann - I had a nodule before ( I called it an extra adams apple) but it ended up being from the Hashimotos. I hear ya on the no more doctors bit. It is enough to make you go nuts sometimes. I don't go a lot of times when I need to but, unfortunately, it is me (and everyone around me) that suffers the consequences. As I have to say to myself; This is not the time to give up. No matter how exhausting physically and emotionally. If it is Hashimotos it is fairly easy to treat. If it is a tumor, it can be benign or not and it is still manageable. So the way I look at it, the odds are in your favor.
Sharen, I feel the same way. Couldn't have said it better. Thankfully, there is always a silver lining somewhere's. Just gotta be
open to look for it, even during the rough times.
Mary - Just looked up and saw your statement "He is God, I am not, what a relief". LOL! What a job that must be. Not so bad being human now, huh? I think about
stuff like that all the time. Lost control a long time ago. Finally came to the conclusion I never really had it in the first place. Only took about
100 bricks to fall on my head - not bad, it beats a life-time (or more) of bricks.
I really hope you are able to get to recovering from this soon. My prayers are with you - Kristin
