I have taken thyroxine for a few years and when I get blood tests taken ( rarely as i am so forgetful) everything appears to be normal. However I am exhausted, forgetful, weak and on top of that have 2 children to look after (the youngest is 2 and this was the start of the hypothyroidism(sp?). I am sure it cannot just be my children wearing me out but I have no energy for them and this is getting me down- together with the piling on of a stone in the last year. Do I have to carry on like this? I don't seem to have the time to do anything about my situation.
