“I was sluggish, grumpy, exhausted, unmotivated and all around unhappy. When I mentioned this to my primary doctor, I thought my hormones were off and that I wanted them to be checked, the response I received was a prescription for an anti-depressant for post-partum. After months of facing the same issue talking to various doctors, I turned to the internet. Through my searches I came across bio-identical hormone replacement. As I read the description, it was as if someone was reading my medical chart, every symptom fit me. Tears of relief rolled down my face confirming I was not losing my mind and what I was feeling is real. At that point I sent an email requesting some more information. Reading the science behind how I was feeling assured me that I was on the right track to a healthier person. I requested the testing kit and waited anxiously for it to arrive in the mail.
Once the testing kit arrived, I returned it to the laboratory for results. A few weeks later I met with the staff to review. As she and I discussed the results, I wept tears, because she confirmed everything I was feeling and why. The “why” was huge to me because it told me my gut all along was right, my thyroid was under performing causing havoc in my body. The staff put in place a program for me, my body, my needs, my issues, just me! Within days I began to feel better, and in weeks I was a whole new person. At night I was sleeping, my mood was better along with my energy level returning. This allowed me to get back into exercising and running which have always been a big part of my life, but lost for several years. Fast forward to today, I have run 5 marathons, over 20 half marathons, completed the Dopey Challenge at Disney World and many other types of physical and endurance type races. In addition, I have gone back to school part-time while continuing to work, enjoy my family much more and all around love life!
The staff at Texas Star Pharmacy has given me a voice that I thought I had lost. With any concern, question, issue or hurdle I have come across in this journey starting April 2010, they have held my hand guiding me to the answer. It feels nice to be heard!"
