Thanks, Labradorite & S.C.
I have been taking new supplements (theanine & a form of folic acid) suggested by a former pharmacist and current Manager of the dispensary I go to along with a high CBD strain of medical marijuana. I also have my back up xanax for emergency situations.
Aside from that, I have been meditating daily and seeing my therapist weekly. As well as going to acupuncture weekly.
I think I will get a second opinion on the enlarged thyroid (the endo's secretary called today to confirm that it is enlarged, but not by very much and he still does not think it is the reason for my sore throats).
Thank you both for your support
