sick of being sick!

Hey...I'm one of those! Lol Have to find the humor in it or it will bring me down to low. I've been sick for twenty years. Since I had my first daughter and it gets worse every year. I used to live in Davis, Illinois but.....I can't handle that kind of cold and the winter time throws me into a deep depression, a hole i can't crawl out of........none of these doctors seem to take me seriously and i'm tired of the stupid comments they make like "get a boob reduction" or "your just lazy". Never in my life have I been a lazy person but anymore I find it extremely hard to function. I have two girls still at home with me and I cry because of all I miss out on with them. They understand and love me irregardless but....it doesn't help. I'm just tired!

I hear ya! I just try not to cry too much about it because then it gives me a migraine :(

I am still in Illinois, and all though it is not even winter yet, I wish I was in Florida! My thyroid is just screwed up right now, the numbers look great but I am FREEZING all day, and the minute I walk outside where is is a whopping 35 degrees (I know, not bad, but it feels like it is -22!) anyways, as soon as that cold air hits my body I about want to puke it actually hurts.

Over the summer I was a little hyper, and had some hot flashes. I think I want them back :) The only problem is if I am a little hyper than my head feels like it wants to explode. Really sick of the ups and downs, but I have faith that some day I will find my euthroid, and this journey will be worth it.

Welcome to the group, and as I will explain in another post, I am very sorry for the delay!
