I Was Diagnosed With Hypothyroid About 10 Years Ago

I was sick. Nothing specific, I just felt drained, no energy and I really felt like I was slowly dying. I am serious. No depressoin, just flat out felt like the life was slowly draining out of me.  One day, I was at work. I swear, If I didn't have a skeletal system to hold me up, I'd have been melted geletan on the floor. I left work and was worked in at my Doctors office.

I went in and described what I was feeing and he said "I think I know what is wrong with you. I'm going to do a blood test. This is what I think. Well, by the end of the day, my Thyroid Stimulating Harmone blood test came back with a low result. BINGO! he put me on Synthroid and by a week  or two later, I felt like myself again. I felt vibrant and alive and I could take care of the kids!  I have been on Synthroid for over 10 years now and I can tell you this.....If I skip 1 day on my medication, I can tell it! I love my physician! He is the best!
