I know that this is probably just me in my head but I feel like my medical illnesses that seem worse and I'm here like what about me I'm also living with conditions that I'm living with for the rest of my life I'm going to be on medications for the rest of my life. I guess I just want them validated and for the first time since I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid someone gave me sympathy which I didn't know I needed.

      We are struggling with a chronic illness! It's not as apparent on the outside as most chronic illnesses, but it is real, and it's tough!

      It's not in your head honey, we all deal with conditions differently and some people have it worse. You are doing amazing just by making it through each and every day alive. Hypothyroidism is a very common form of thyroid issues, but some people have no symptoms or seasonal symptoms. This is a condition that's not considered a disability until you have it. You are doing amazing and that's all the is expected!

      I have medical issues and hypothyroidism is a big one for me. I will be on my meds life long as well and it's really hard. Also hard to find others who can relate. I'm here if you want to talk 💜

        @CheleFish absolutely relate, quick question have you ever faced nausea or dizziness bordering on fainting? I have those persistently and keep being told it's probably just that I need different medication levels for hypothyroidism but I'm yet to hear of anyone with these side effects persistently? Also hi I'm new here

          @Cara55 because we are! Not many people can handle what we deal with and function through daily!
