I feel like I am a rabbit caught in head lights! I have an underactive thyroid diagnosed for 2 years. I have no real knowledge about the thyroid - I just know that I take levothyroxine 175 mg per day.
I know I feel like absolute rubbish every day of my life. I am so exhausted that I can barely bring myself to clean my kitchen, so irritable I can barely stand anyone even talking to me and just so drained. I have the symptoms of depression although I am not depressed (neither am I in denial - I have had depression before and this is not the same).
It is only since looking on here that I see these symtoms could be part of my thyroid problem, I was starting to think that I am losing the plot.
I clearly need to do some research into the syptoms of underactive thyroid and how to deal with it. Can anyone recommend a good book as a starting place? I just want to feel a little bit 'normal' again but it's been so long that normal to me is knackered!
My poor kids and husband are suffering so much as they are losing their Mum and Wife - I'm a recluse who can't even bear to have a conversation with them and I can't take much more of feeling like this. Please help!
