But I would the new manufacturing of this vax have to go thru some testing to ensure it is equivalent? I view this much like a drug going off patent. They need to prove equivalency.

That may (and likely SHOULD) take more time then Pfizer/Moderna and the rest of them producing more vax.

I have seen a functional medicine MD for my thyroid for 5 years. Been happy with him.

Late January went into afib. Big amounts of coffee after taking my meds as I had to get #1 to LGA at 5:39am l. Not smart. But never a problem previously.

Cardiologist suggested (declared adamantly) I was over medicated. He asked that i see an endocrinologist which I finally did today. He also asked that in the meantime I reduce me armour thyroid. Which I did.

I have gained weight. Felt miserable. I wake up in the middle of the night for hours.

I spoke to this woman who thought my reduction was a great thing despite feeling shitty.

I looked her in the eye and told her I am only not a test tube of chemical reactions. My symptoms matter.

She was not impressed. I will see where this leads but I doubt my cardiologist will be happy with my decision.

Full disclosure. My dad died of a drug reaction to afib meds. So I am sensitive to this. But I still should not feel awful after feeling pretty good on my previous levels. .

Agreed. The rest appears to be hygiene theatre.

I always washed my hands with soap. Only use the germicidal stuff when at the doctor’s office.

There is a thread in my NextDoor going on for 2.5 months about it.

I love reading the daily missives

I felt like a tool yesterday. Enjoying walking to our grocery store from the car without a mask, I am in the produce aisle and get the side eye from someone. I realize I forgot to put it on. I scrambled to put it on.

I don’t think I am capable of remembering to put it on as I go inside yet.

You can feel guilty but still apply. This isn’t volunteer work. This is how Raleigh gets what she deserves.

I don’t like headshots in resumes.

Your money will essentially be fed to the cats - like her dead husband.
