I have struggled to get people to understand how Under active or over active thyroid effects peoples lives and that includes Drs. Does any one else get this? They shove the meds at you and say see how it goes and your expected to lump it? No support info. When I was diagnosed I didn't even know this was a condition I would most likely have to live with for the rest of my life!!! I was told by the Dr I would be on long term meds over the phone, didn't even tell me why, just said my thyroid was on the low side and left me a prescription behind the desk. I had google to fill in the gaps and the mother in law was still calling me lazy and my husband still shouted at me for falling asleep in the middle of the day as I couldn't carry on. After all I had the meds why weren't they working yet again I wasn't told it would take a long time.
I'm sorry Ive had this bottled up for about a year and recent events have peed me off so needed to know if anyone else feel like this condition isn't even on the radar? When I tell people about it they haven't heard of it or don't understand it if they have.
thanks for reading
