What's New in Autoimmune Thyroid Disease

I'm new here!

Hi, my name is blackberrybrandy77. I'm here because I read an article about autoimmune thyroid disease and how suspectable we are to the flu and common colds.#MightyTogether #AutoimmuneThyroidDisease

Jigsaw puzzles app.

I’ve recently started doing jigsaw puzzles on an app on my iPad. Anyone else do these? They are a fun and fantastic distraction while in bed!
Hope you are having a good day, Beddies! I wish you good days ahead and lots of reasons to smile

You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes…you get what you need

I asked the universe for a motorcycle this year, and they gave me a wheelchair instead 🦽

Grateful I can get to the bathroom on my own now with the help of new wheels

I feel like I might die from a broken heart

I've read about how people can actually die from a broken heart years ago. I never had high blood pressure until this past year, my cholesterol is high and both my parents had heart disease including my younger brother by the age of 40 he had 2 hear attacks. I constantly have chest pain but I have anxiety too so it could be that. But part of me wouldn't mind if I did pass away from broken heart. I'm so alone and I have told my family how I'm not doing well emotionally, mentally and physically #epilpsey #AutoimmuneThyroidDisease #hashimotos just to name a few. But I receive nothing in response except that I'm sure where you live in they must have agencies to help you. I'm trying to find a reason to continue... I wouldn't take my life because of how I know what the aftermath is from #Suicide but I really would like it be over.

Anxiety and recent panic attack problems

Sooooo….. recently I’ve been having really odd sleep patterns (alseep 2 hours early, up awake 4-6 hours earlier than I used to) and daily panic attacks for what I feel is practically no reason. After my recent bloodwork I may know, in part, why. I have autoimmune hypothyroidism that resulted in a total thyroidectomy in 2016, so my levels are based mostly on my weight, which I’ve been losing steadily. My TSH(thyroid stimulating hormone) was 0.0379! Normal minimum is 0.5, so at that level I was lucky panic attacks and slightly elevated blood pressure was all I had! Holy crow, was I scared! At least I can start telling myself it’ll get better- I hope! Ugh and phew! #PanicAttack #AutoimmuneThyroidDisease #Hypothyroid #hyperthyroid

Long time, no see.

I realize as my 25 birthday is upon me that I haven’t talked to y’all in a long while. Well I fell into a very deep dark hole. I became an alcoholic. Which created problems in every aspect of my life. My psychiatrist ended up telling me that all of my mental problems were caused by my hormones and that she couldn’t help me. Nearly 2 years later, here I am, after being put on meds for my si joint, and gaining weight, and having worsening symptoms. I had multiple procedures and surgeries to get to where I am. Now I’m on medicine for my thyroid, because it isn’t functioning properly, hardly anything in my body is. I’ve received a lot of bad news, I’ve started arguments just to feel something other than being numb. I’m just tired. I’m tired of nothing working out. I thought this year was going to be different. Better. But I’m not on any meds for my mental health because they continued to worsen my hormones. And sometimes I can deal, sometimes I feel alone that I can’t. And it’s very overwhelming. I’m not even 25 yet and I have to get cancer screenings, mammograms, mris/cts on my brain/neck… I’m just tired of it all I want my life back. Sometimes I just have no energy to push on. I feel so alone. I just want someone to help me. #alone #giveup #scared #ChronicIllness #sick #AutoimmuneThyroidDisease #ThyroidDisease

What are you all doing today?

The weather outside is cold with freezing rain. But I am inside, all snuggled up cozily in my bed with my little bed buddy Grimace next to me, watching “ Gentlemen Prefer Blondes “ and eating deliciously fresh chewy donut holes.
