I was just wanting to know how everybody managed to stay positive and deal with the crippling symptoms they've experienced? This is the most down I've been with the condition I've ever felt and would love to hear some positive stories of how you all cope(d).
I feel I'm finding it exceptionally hard as the symptoms of hypothyroidism have taken away the ability to live how I once did. I was diagnosed almost one year ago to the day, a 19 year old athlete struck down right in their prime. The fatigue and mental clouding I'm facing is debilitating, more often than not I won't get out of bed in a day. I feel as though I was once a creative, extroverted student with the world ahead of them, not to mention a lion in the gym. I am now a tamed, lazy pussycat for lack of better words. This combined with my current living situation, completely alone in a big (usually social) student house all by myself for the last two months and some old sports injuries reoccurring have led to me questioning everyday what the point of being alive is.
I'd love to hear how you all managed to stay positive while your medication and levels were being figured out
