Hypothyroid, Anyone???

I was wondering if there is anyone else on here struggling with hypothyroidism? And if so, do you have any suggestions about the management of it that worked for you?

For me this started in 2009. Within 3 months I gained 50lbs. and was ridiculously tired always! I have been on medication since but still have trouble with the weight and the tiredness. It's a bummer. Lol, but I try to keep in good spirits.

Anyone with similar experiences?

That suuuuuucks.

My mother has the opposite.. hyperthyroidism and has to take replacement meds daily.
My friend's sister also had thyroid cancer... her thyroid gland was eventually removed and she has to take meds now too.

I can't imagine how tough it is, the weight gain, the low energy, the emotional instability. All I can say is that it's good that you know what it is and aren't left wondering the reason for all the problems it causes. I'm glad you're staying positive, do your doctors have anything to say about the meds and finding something more effective?
