Yes vs. No fact finding for honest truth seekers. Not for excuse makers.
THE Lord of me and THE God of me - Greek word construction to refer to two persons which Thomas did use.
THE Lord and God of me - Greek word construction to refer to one person which Thomas did not use.

The context is Seeing and Believing.
Jesus had previously given Thomas a very important teaching about seeing and believing:
Jesus had taught Thomas that to see him was to also see the Father. John 14:5-10. Jesus had taught Thomas that to see Jesus was to see not one person but two: (1) Jesus and (2) the Father. Jesus and John said no one has seen God the Father but Jesus said they HAD seen God the Father. Jesus had taught Thomas HOW they had seen the Father. The Father was at work in Jesus and they had seen the Father at work in the works Jesus was doing. 14:10.
Since Thomas uses a word construction used to refer to two persons and since the context of John 20:28 is seeing and believing and since Jesus had taught Thomas that to see him was to see the Father, the facts compel honest truth seekers to conclude Thomas was referring to two persons and affirming exactly what Jesus had taught him, to see Jesus is to see not just one person but two persons:
My Lord = .He who has seen ME and My God = .has seen THE FATHER
He who has seen ME = "My Lord" has seen THE FATHER = "My God"
