A Quiet Plea
(Written by Joey Reed, Graves Disease, et al)
I am 28 years old. I’ve suffered from hyperthyroid, graves disease, thyrotoxicosis, and, since its removal, hypothyroidism. I’ve considered giving in to suicidal tendencies so many times. I don’t have anyone that seems to understand the pain I feel just getting out of bed in the morning. I’ve shut myself off from meeting new people. I have survived eight heart failures and numerous hospitalizations.
All of this and now I’m on numerous medications for depression and such. I take 150mcg of synthroid daily and follow all guidelines and still feel awful and unmotivated. I would love to find someone to love and care for but I don’t feel worthy of anyone’s affection. I wanted to post on your site. I have read some of your posts and noticed that there are not many males. Thanks for your time.
