Hello everyone, so I really wanted to start this community, as there were no up to date communities on the same topic. As this is something I have to deal with and not anyone I know deals with it as well, I'd love to get to know others with it and hear about there struggles, helpful tips that have helped them, and anything that they would like to say.
I'm a couple weeks shy of my 23rd birthday, a mother of two, married, and feeling unsexy and unhealthy, and I want this to be done with! After I had my 2nd daughter in May, I lost 20 of the 30 pounds w/in a week or two, then I gained the 20pounds back in a matter of days. I was becomming a zombie, not just exausted, but I would pass out holding my daughter, and other random things that I would normally do throughout the day. I was loosing a lot of hair, my skin was more dryer than ever, it got to the point that my hands would bleed and throb...as well as several other issues, (by the way I've had some of these symptoms for about 10years, but they just got WORSE after the birth of my last daughter)you guys get the point, so yea I'm hypothyroid AND SO SICK OF IT..Even with the medicine I feel way overly exausted, sometimes I think I feel more tired after I take the medicine too...I don't know what to do, I want to have energy, feel overjoyed, loose weight, and live life to the fullest, but I don't know what to do, I've tried many things, and have been on the verge of giving up and saying, well I guess I'm just going to be like this for the rest of my life, yay ;(.
Anyways everyone please feel free to give your input on your experience, things that have helped you, and tips that might help myself and others......
Lets figure out a way for all of us to be able to live with this problem, rather than this problem overtaking our lives.
