Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

You can live without a thyroid and medication but it's possible to expect some very uncomfortable symptoms like brittle hair or even balding, agitation, depression, chronic fatigue and generally poor quality of health. 

It can take some time to find the right dosage of meds, you can work with your doctor on this.
