For years I have felt sick with all kinds of symptoms, I assumed that they were sinus issues and I had head pressures. The medications worked for a while and then stopped. I had tingling all over my body, shortness of breath, fatigue, could not clean my house, and a ton of work at work like everyone else but could never keep up because I was always sick, I was always sleepy (feels drunk sleepy) as well and could not grade papers, or stand in front of students in the class, so I quit. That was 4 years ago.
Within the last few months, I found out that I have suspicious lumps in my thyroid (i have to repeat biopsy). I have antibodies that suggest an autoimmune condition on my thyroid, other bloodwork relating to it is also out of range.
What I am having trouble with is the loneliness that I have felt for years because of it. I stopped hanging out with friends because if I felt well for a few hours and commit to an event or activity, I may have to back out. Even now I hate talking about it with family because they don't understand my symptoms. 2 of my brothers said nothing is wrong with you. My mom, you just don't exercise enough. My brother is already saying even these tests will probably confirm that you nothing is wrong with you.
I will go to the doctor again to get to the root of it and fix it
but if you can, please say something.
