Hi hope your all well

I have tried si as so fed up of the battle but stopped again as baby been bery ill and not had time as takes me a while to do it as new to it and dont really like doing it!!

I did notice aome of stmptoms a bit worse dizzy feeling sick etc

Also had my ferritin checked its 40

My thyroid t4 is right at bottom of the range

My folate was 8

I had a chat with someone who said that b12 will increase metaulsium meaning will increase need for thyroid, cortisol potassium and sodium etc

My mood also dropped.

I feel very down again as not really getting anywhere have eaten gluten and sugar and feel very fedup jave swollen belly spasm in my face apathy just fed up of being me really

I have baby on my own i adore but that gets very lonley and not meaning to sound horrible but im also feeling a bit trapped but my mood has dipped much worse since eating gluten...

Miss me the ikd happy me i miss excersise and being fit i miss wanting to go and meet people i miss just being happy and feeling well 😞

Im so confised mfthr and was also worrying incase made me bad doing si bit my b12 is low

My face spasm i hVe sinus infection and pain in my eye now aswell i think coz im very run down

Sorry im a bit depressing x

Hi lovely, oh bless u. I can totally understand how isolated u feel. I had PND and only just recovering. I have hashimotos and my t4 is dropping too. Just started I had injecting every other day , I know how u are feeling. Try and tackle one problem at a time. That's what I did. I take selenium for my thyroid and magnesium at bedtime. I also take folic acid as I'm injecting every other day. I tired gluten free and didn't like it. Do what's right for u.

Do u have a family member or friend who can support you? Don't be alone while your feeling down. Being a mum can be lonely. I still get down days now. U learn to cope. See If someone can help u inject.

Feel free to message me. Hugs x
