No Way Out
« on: January 09, 2023, 03:04:39 AM »

Hey all, I hate to keep asking for prayers, and I feel as though I should be taking it “like a man” or whatever. Yet, here I am.

I got sent to the emergency room again the other day for an afib attack. I was sleeping when I felt my heart going out of whack, so when I got up, I began hyperventilating or was short of breath. Told my wife to call the ambulance, and they ended up sending me out on a Med-Evac plane to go to the hospital.

I've known for over a year that I have Graves Disease which causes Hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism can have negative effects on the bodily organs if not kept under control. Not to mention, it causes a lot of anxiety and mood swings. The overproduction of certain hormones are no joke.

 I stopped taking my anti-thyroid meds almost a year ago due to the side effects. After speaking with the doctor, I now fully understand I could die if this is left untreated. So now I'm back on the anti-thyroid meds (surprise!) and I have elected to undergo ablation of the thyroid through the use of “nuclear medicine”.

Part of the reason for making this post is to express the extreme anxiety I feel when my thyroid is going nuts. It's a proper thyroid storm when my heart is involved. I hate it because I can't control it. After a few weeks, the anti-thyroid meds will kick in and bring the hormones down to a safer level. The catch is the nearly intolerable pain that comes with the meds. Then again, I'm a bit of a wimp. Which is why I want them to shrink my thyroid.

I'll be ok, no matter what happens. I just want you all to know that you'll be ok too. Not only that, but I think of you all constantly, and you're always in my prayers.

Porter,
I had thyroid cancer 8 years ago. I had my whole thyroid removed . They wanted me to see an endocrinologist but I said I wanted to see my health care provider. For the next 5 years I felt like I was on an emotional rollercoaster . I understand the mental distress,  it's horrible.  I was on a web site called team care it's for thyroid cancer and other thyroid conditions they kept saying to go to a good endocrinologist.  I did pray alot about that and ended up going to one. For the last 2 year I've been stable with my thyroid levels and I'm not on that emotional rollercoaster.
Diet is really important also. I would incourage you to look into the carnivore diet on YouTube. I've listened to people's story's on how their thyroid disease went into remission .

I hope this helps , I understand the struggle. We're all on a journey with God and everything works together for the good for those in Christ Jesus.

Praying for you Porter. Yes God puts us in a spiritual pressure cooker sometimes
extreme hardship and pain. I am a wimp too Porter, when it comes to physical
pain. It seems that most of my tests and trials come from intense grieving for
family and friends who have either died or are suffering through horrendous disease
both physically and mentally.
I know I will suffer physically as I get older. I can already feel that something is
going on . I just hope and pray, and pray and pray that God will see me through.
My husband is going for hip replacement on Thursday, he’s been suffering for three and a half
years and low and behold , the cataract lens in my eye dislodged and I may need surgery asap.
I am my husband’s only caregiver, no family here or friends to stay with him so I am hoping to
not have to have surgery right away. It’s ok if I lose one eye , I still have another one.😁

Hang in there Porter . God says “ Fear not for I am with you”.
Think about this,,,,, “ Well done good servant “.
God Bless You and all our BT family.

Wendy, I know exactly what you mean by the heart palpitations. They are scary because every so often when I get those, they will lead into an afib attack. Try humming next time you get palpitations. There is some scientific evidence to show that humming helps in reliving stress and anxiety and can bring down your blood pressure.

Aubrey, I'm pleased to hear you are doing better now. I, too, am slowly beginning to change my diet. I never used to take a good diet seriously until I couldn't eat whatever I wanted without my thyroids freaking out.

Pamela, I with you there. It makes me glad that God has revealed to you the things He is doing. ;) That goes for everyone here in the forums, and everyone out there that understands that God is for you.

How are you doing Porter? Are you home yet? I hope you are doing better.💕


I saw the eye surgeon this morning and he gave me good news and bad news.
I don’t need surgery but I have macular degeneration.
I thought my new cataract lens slipped . I have to see a specialist but not for a year
so they said it’s a slow process before blindness. Hopefully and with prayer it won’t
get worse too fast. Praise God , all glory to our Lord Jesus who will see us through .



God Bless You All

Hi Porter,

I understand what you are going through my friend.  God puts us through some very frightening situations.  You are in my thoughts and prayers.  These scriptures always brought me comfort and I pray the same for you:

Psalm 34:19
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all.

Psalm 107:4-9
4 They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way;
They found no city to dwell in.
5 Hungry and thirsty,
Their soul fainted in them.
6 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
And He delivered them out of their distresses.
7 And He led them forth by the right way,
That they might go to a city for a dwelling place.
8 Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men!
9 For He satisfies the longing soul,
And fills the hungry soul with goodness.

Hi Wendy, yes, I'm home now. Graves Disease also causes bulging, itchy and burning eyes, so I can relate to your eye problems to a lesser level. I've thought about what it might be like to go blind, and that'd be hard to deal with. My wife is blind in one eye and I always worry about her driving, lol. She almost got ran over by a dump truck while driving our snowmobile once because she didn't see the truck due to that one blind eye.

Thanks for the verses, ralph, I'm so looking forward to that day. :)
