Hi I recently got diagnosed with an under active thyroid. Having done a little reading I now think I have been suffering for some years. The doctor has said that my levels are only slightly low and reluctantly put me on thyroxin but the difference it has made is unreal. I am starting to feel like me again after years of putting it down to being 'tired' and 'soft' and not good enough. I am currently having some issues with work I don't want to make excuses for problems with my performance but the symptoms make sense-being forgetful and confused and generally struggling to cope when in years gone by I would've managed unfortunately as I'm just there over a year they didn't know how I was before and my manager just seems to be really unsympathetic and I feel useless. Is there any documentation out there for employers which can just aid me in getting the help I need. Thank you x
