Welcome to StopTheThyroidMadness.com. You might say I became a fledging thyroid patient advocate in 2002, when I started a site on Yahoo Groups. That site grew and grew, and so did my knowledge along with with everyone else’s. We have all been living guinea pigs and self-educated in the face of doctors who had little to NO insight about Armour, correct treatment, and side issues like Ferritin and Adrenals.
And having a website on the side was something always on my mind. But with the growing Yahoo group, and with my busy private life, it kept being swept under the carpet.
But last year, I started paying attention to a few doctor-to-patient websites. And I was APPALLED at the LOUSY advice a particular doctor was giving desperate patients who came to their site, seeking help. The more I read, the more frustrated and angry I got. Thus, I finally put “the pedal to the metal” in the Fall of 2005, and with the help of a website designer, put all my articles and information together, as well as brought on board a few other knowledgeable thyroid patients whom I knew could offer a lot.
The result: Stop the Thyroid Madness. This site is intended to educate and to give HOPE to the millions of thyroid patients who remain sick due to untreated hypothyroid, or under-treated hypothyroid.
Additionally, this site is dedicated to a young and desperate gal named Miserable Mom, who came to one of these doctor-to-patient sites, got advice which only left her sick, and she never came back again.
