  1. They monitor me pretty close... I get blood work every 3 - 4 months.. They don't look at my TSH anymore now the watch my antibody level, t4 and t3 and free's. I have had doctors tell me blood work is great.. here take this anti-depressant I keep telling them I am NOT DEPRESSED. I feel like CRAP and I am alway TIRED! Here's a perfect example.. Today I took DD Christmas Shopping... we left at 11 and here it is 2:45 and I think I need a nap but I still have so much more to do before I can rest.... Housework, ironing etc and ALL I want to do it sit on the couch and not move.. this is REALLY tough because my 12 yr old is bowl full of energy and today she is even sick but she wants to decorate the house... not going to happen... WILL I EVER FEEL BETTER?
  2. I have had soooo Many blood tests done and I never come up defiecint on anything..... The even tested me for sleep apnea because they just can't figure me out... This last doctor wanted to put me on a drug that is for people that have Narcolepsy... I am so over doctors telling me random things.. I just want to get better and feel better!
  3. Hi Mine name is Kim and I am 46 year old and I have Hashimo's Thyroiditis....I have been going back and forth on trying to get healthier for 3 years now.... and I am SO FUSTRATED! I want and need to lose weight.... I know I need to be Gluten Free..... and I really don't like most meat... unless it's the occasional burger.... I do much better on Low Carb... I AM TOTALLY BEYOND FUSTRATED... I was diagnosed with a thyroid issue about 3 years ago and I have searched and searched for information... I know from talking to doctors and specialists that I really need to stay gluten free and soy free... that to lose weight I need to be lower in carbs,.... but then you throw in my dislike for meats.. and I really have an issue. Does ANYONE out there understand? Does ANYONE have any suggestions? or maybe just a sympathetic shoulder to cry on. I would LOVE to lose 5 pounds by Christmas... but being as tired as I am most days it's tough... I am starting to do just 10 minutes a day of working out...to try to get my body back on track... I would LOVE to have some menu suggestions, websites etc to help me plan my life a little better.... ARE THERE ANY LOW CARB VEGETARIANS OUT THERE THAT CAN OFFER ME A DIRECTION!!! Thanks in advance... oh and I am new so hopefully I will get to know everyone real soon... I LOVE the idea of having a support system for health
