  3. Ok I understand it's doing a job and it pays. But I really want to scratch my head here. The family has a construction business, they have done jobs all over the country. No matter what job we try and buy local.

    Some outfit in Ohio,. Yes. OHIO bought a 480 control box.

    For the ones watching at home.
    It looks like this not wrapped in plastic and bolted to a pallet

    So back to my thought. Why would you buy a plane ticket. Yes plane flight to Chicago, then box truck drive to ohio.

    Why not buy it in Ohio and save all this cost of.buying it and shipping.

    I realize it's work for some, but dang waste of money. Ugghhhhh

    It's a lot better that you know now and can take care of it and monitor it. I've got to go get a prescription this morning before I can eat but I feel so much better now than I used to. Except it wasn't caught for a long long time so there's some collateral issues that would have been totally avoided if it was caught early. I'm glad you went. Sorry the news wasn't better but you knew that something had to be out of kilter.
    Thanks for telling us about your progress. You never know Who might be helped by reading this.
    I've been in many many conversations with others who have also had thyroid issues since I found out. It's so common it's hard to believe that I didn't know what was wrong with me beforehand.
    Hopefully you only have one issue.

    Thanks moose. Hopefully that's all it is and they prescribed me meds to take so hopefully that and cutting out sugar will get things in check and I can loose some weight to help it out. He said there could be underlying thyroid issues too so if there is then we can get that sorted out as well and that might help the rest of it.


    Definitely wasnt the news I was hoping for but some news is better than this is just how you are. The a1c i think is what he said was 8.7 gonna put me on meds for 30 days them check it again to see where it's at
