My mum has never been the most supportive or maternal woman in the world, but today she said that I am a hypochondriac because I still have some symptoms and my most recent test results came back as normal. My doctor has done lots of tests for my bones, diabetes, kidneys, liver etc.... and all have come back fine apart from my iron being a little low.
Could my worrying about my hypothyroidism be making my imagine that I still have fatigue, depression, pains, etc? Also, if I was a hypochondriac would I know it?
I feel a bit confused. I do go on about my health quite a lot but I think that's because I don't have any support from anyone - I'm not close to my dad either and don't have any family apart from my mum. Also, my friends and I have drifted apart as I am a working mum now so mostly stay at home at night and they are all paired off so we aren't really compatible anymore.
Maybe I am just imagining all the remaining symptoms because of everything else. I did suffer from some hallucinations when I was a teenager so it is not unreasonable that I might be irrational now.
Oh, by the way - I've been referred to a ADHD specialist by a psychiatrist which really annoyed my mum and set her off on a rant. To be honest I'm not at all convinced about the ADHD thing, you can't diagnose it with a blood test or a brain scan etc. Also, I was very quiet at school and did well academically, and aside from some minor quirks in my personality I was not at all disruptive to anyone.
