Hi Lori ... when i found this site about two years ago... i had practically locked myself away from my lovely family , with my Ipad .
I thought i was insane , i could hardly talk , I choked when eating and shook like a blamange ..i was in a very high state of exhaustion and sweated 24/7 non stop , my anxiety levels were through the roof ............. there is more .. much more ... but i bet , by now, you know many of the symptoms of thyroid disease for yourself.
I have Graves' disease ... but i'm Euthyroid now , ie ... normal .
and i'm loving it !
and the ONLY reason that happened is because , like you, I found this site
... and one other like it.
I could have become better and left forever to get on with my life , but something inside me made me stay on ... it was because of the gratitude i had for all these lovely Clever people .
They helped me when i was at my lowest... I was beaten and wanted just to lie down ... and leave this world where i had no peace.
I sorted my Antibody situation , with the help of my Doctor, ( and an antithyroid drug )
I then listened to every word on here and noted it all ... made myself a programme ..... and stuck to it .continually asking questions and listening to the voices of experience.
I try my best now to be vigilant and try to identify those , like you , who arrive here with little hope but have the Will to live . ... and who will fight to the last to get well again... just like me.
Be Brave and Trust us to help you .. you won't be disappointed Luvvie.
Luv Mx 🌹
