Gary before the thyroid drug:
It’s been a week now that Gary’s been medicated for his thyroid.
On the first day he was literally pounding on his skill from the seizure activity and panic attacks. I'm amazed he made it to day two.
For the next few days, he was fairly normal. Then, at two am, he burst in the room and announced he could feel his feet.
"MY FEET FELT WEIRD AND THEN I REALIZED I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO FEEL MY FEET FOR YEARS NOW AND NOW THEY'RE BACK! AND THIS FLOOR IS DIRTY!"
That went on a day ... and then other body parts started waking up. In answer to your question, no - the painful body parts. His chipped elbow started hurting again. His torn shoulder. And then today his lower back began acting up again.
Still, he's decided he rather be alive and in pain than sick and numb.
Today I asked why he wasn’t watching the news. “I DON’T KNOW! IT’S THE THYROID PILL! THE PILL TELLS ME WHAT TO DO!”
