Tired Of Hyperthyroidism...Hi! I'm new to this group, I don't know if it's still active or not but I felt the need to share my story as well.
I've been living with hyperthyroidism for 4 years now, like many others I didn't know what was wrong with me at the time. I ate a lot but I kept losing weight, my hands were shaky, my heartbeat was always at top speed, I slept almost all day, my eyes couldn't handle light, etc, etc...
I was diagnosed with malnutrition at first, lol, until finally a doctor gave me the right diagnosis. Since then I've been following a treatment with propranolol and tapazole. The thing is, if I stop taking the treatment my symptoms will just reappear, and I really am tired of this illness. I want to readapt to my old lifestyle and I just can't, I sink into depression very quickly, I feel as if my life was a constant rollercoaster and I can't get out of it.
It's difficult to deal with the physical issues but then I have to deal with the emotional issues as well.
So anyway, I just wanted to get this off my chest.
