A Quick Update

I just wanted to pop on here to say things are going much better with my son. We are still hitting some bumps in the road, but overall things are very good. 😊

We really feel the thyroid medication has helped significantly. He hasn’t learned many coping skills at therapy yet, but his thoughts have gone from violent to mostly just negative words. He said he hasn’t been having any thoughts of harming himself. The thoughts he is still dealing with are happening less and less and they go away quickly. 

He tends to dwell on things, question his motives and he gets pretty anxious when he’s being questioned.  That last one us completely understandable. Nobody likes being questioned about “bad” things going on.

That’s all I have time for now, but I’ll try to write more often. 😉

    • My son’s tsh was 37 (should have been 4 or less), and his tpo was 11,000 (should have been 60 or less…yeah sixty not 600 or 6,000.) The doctor claims the 11,000 didn’t mean anything significant. If that is an antibody related test, I would assume that his body was really attacking his thyroid and maybe other parts of his body. I think that could explain his sudden onset of symptoms. From what I read online, what attacks the thyroid can also attack your brain and cause the psychosis symptoms. It doesn’t really matter what the doctors say, as long as he’s getting better.😊
