At 20, In College, And I’m Majoring In Hyperthyroidism?!
I had never taken a biology course, in highschool or university. I was unaware of the havoc you could wreak on a person. When I started feeling tired all the time, I assumed I needed to go to the gym a little more often. When I started getting severe anxiety, I started skipping classes and staying in bed. Finally I made it to the doctor, where she informed me I had hyperthyroidism. I’ve been on medication now for 4 months, and my levels aren’t even close to going back to normal. The insomnia, anxiety, sickness, and general tiredness have made me miss more classes than I can count. I have been told to seriously consider delaying my senior year of my undergrad to get better. I am nothing but angry with you, because I know I have missed too many events already and I don’t want to miss any more. I have only recently discovered this site, and it has made me feel like I am not alone in this sickness, because so many of my friends and family members simply do not understand. Who knew one tiny organ could mess up so much.
Bio: I am a 20 year old University student. This winter I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism, and finding this website has given me a huge uplift in my spirit.
