Hello! I am a 19 year old who has just recently been diagnosed with Hashimotos. It was a rough journey trying to figure it out. I had to miss classes a lot due to my symptoms, work seemed to be an absolute nightmare, and I felt I wasn't very kind to my loved ones. There are times where I feel very manic and just down right annoyed by anything. My Boyfriend (bless his heart) has been helping me deal with it even though he knows nothing about it. My anut was diagnosed with Hashimotos when she was younger than I am now, and I love to listen to how she deals with hers and how she has struggled, but I would also love to hear others stories and how they have handled it. Sometimes I just feel lost and confused beyond heck. Sometimes I feel as though I am Bipolar. I just want to know how others feel as well.

      i found out i had hashimoto thyroiditis in february of this year. after blood work, ultrasound, two biopsy’s. it was a lot. i noticed i couldn’t keep myself awake. and i began becoming more aggressive. i still don’t understand how to cope with it or to accept that this is what i carry with me from now on. close friends have been trying to help with learning more about it which makes me feel less alone. but i don’t know much on what i could say that would make you feel any better than just letting you know there’s people out there feeling the same way of course not 100%. but you got us here. it’s always nice to have someone who will sit down and listen.

      I was diagnosed when I was 20 and even though it was hard, finding out that there was a reason for my symptoms helped me so much. I’m 22 now and I’m still coming to terms with the fact that I have an illness that can affect my every day life. My last boss wasn’t very understanding and I missed a lot of work. But now, I have a boss and coworkers who know what I deal with and try their best to accommodate me. It’s a hard road that I’m still on, I’m so glad you have people who’ve got your back. It gets easier, it really does. I’m here if you ever need someone to talk to, this app is the first place I’ve ever met real people like me

        @ItsGracie I feel this on every level. I’m 28, dx at 26 but lived with symptoms prior to dx for years. I was so passionate about healing my body, I went to grad school and furthered my education in integrative and functional nutrition. Visit my website/ www.mindyourownplate.com I provide useful free guides and am accepting patients for the new gut revival package- were we work together for 4-6 months to get to the root cause of your symptoms.
