I have learnt an awful lot through accessing this site and am so grateful for the information gleaned - I would be in a much worse state were it nor for advice on so many things, especially the importance of Vitamins and going Gluten free. I eat well, take supplements, have increased my Levo to 75mcg and can take Cynomel whenever I feel I need to (although I haven't taken any recently) and overall I feel fine (apart from heel pain). What I do feel, however, is that I have lost the life energy I used to have - I am such a different person to the person I was 2 years ago. It is manifest in so many little ways and life just generally feels an effort whereas it used to feel a privilege. That may sound weird but I cannot really think how to express this - I keep leaving things that formally I would have done instantly, whether it be a minor thing like washing the kitchen floor or something more important like making appointments or paying bills. I am aware that I wander from room to room in the house (I don't work) and keep putting things off then not doing them. I mentioned it to my doctor a few weeks ago and she said (basically) well at least you're alive. That may seem harsh but I know what she means and I know I have a good life and I know that I am blessed with a healthy and close knit family and I know I am fortunate in so many ways but........ where has my spirit for living gone????
