Hi, im new to the site. Im 23 years old and have just been diagnosed with underactive thyroid, which annoyingly coincides with me trying to complete the last term of my last year at uni!! Im on 100mc of levothyroxine and need to go back for a blood test to check my levels on this new dose, was on 50mc.
I have been experiencing severe fatigue, dry skin, depression, mood swings and COMPLETE loss of sex drive (even though i have a very handsome boyfriend). Im trying to write my 15,000 word disertation and i forget words, cant concentrate and get sooooo very frustrated with myself and my hands get so cold i cant type on my laptop.
Im lucky i have such a supportive boyfriend, however some of my friends just think im now boring, or cant be bothered to see them because they dont understand just how rubbish i feel ALL the time.
Ive tried looking into things i can do to make myself feel better, someone suggested Bananas, I HATE BANANAS, but due to my desperation i have now eaten a banana a day for the last two weeks!! ewwww
Was just wondering if someone out there could tell me that everythings going to be ok. I REALLY NEED HELP GUYS, PLEASE HELP ME.
Would greatly receive any words of wisdom......
thanks, hope you're all well.
