East Brunswick, New Jersey
I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism in 1990 after countless efforts with my doctor to test me. She did not want to test me because I was not overweight.  But I already started to gain weight. After testing me we discovered that I was hypothyroid. I started on medication. I still did not lose weight after months of being on the medication.  I found an endo about a hour away from me...

I'm trying to get healthy again after a medicine induced thyroid problem that caused my weight to climb to 153lbs. I'm on thyroid medicine now and have lost most of the weight but would also like to be toned up. My weight goal is about 100lbs. Give or take a few lbs. since I've never realy been verry muscular I may decide I like a higher weight better since muscle weighs more than fat.

My name is Michelle. I love all of the lovely things in life. And the lovely things in life love me too, I suppose. Or one would assume, since I’ve been fortunate to experience many lovely things. However, life wasn’t always so lovely. When I look back at my teenage years, I could use the word “angst”, just as easily as an Stephen Chobsky, or a Haulden...

I lost a kidney and have just recently found a path to take because a Doctor took the time to listen and realized I was not a hypochondriac or a big overly sensitive, stressed, depressed woman. (yes, lots of justified sarcasm). I was athletic, very lean and continued to stay fit by enjoying bike rides and playing recreational co-ed softball. However, when I started a family at 25, I had...

I'm a 35 year old mother and wife living with cancer. My two oldest children and I were diagnosed six years ago with MEN2a and Medullary Thyroid Cancer. At the time I was also diagnosed with Metastatic Medullary Thyroid Cancer and Pheochromocytomas (adrenal tumors). Everything since then has been one very loopy rollercoaster ride.

I am 24 years old. I was in a car accident when I was 17, and year later I started having daily level 10 headaches. I searched for an answer everywhere: Michigan, Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis. For 5 years I had no answers and no pain relief. I told my mom that I would try out one more doctor, but I was very ready to give up. The one doctor happened to be a neurosurgeon and helped me...
