Starting Over in a Non-Thyroid World
I’ve been living with you for 17 years now and yet you astonish me at how fast things can change again. I am going on 40 years old and now have a new problem, living single with you.
It wasn’t so bad living with family and in seclusion, in my home when I was in a funk, but now I am forced to meet new friends, and even have romantic encounters…. That was a joke!!!
How do I start over??
How do I “act” normal when I’m not??
And will I ever date again??
It’s just too much for me and I wish you would go away for good!! I hate you, and hadn’t dealt with you in so long. All of a sudden you’re back with a vengeance!!
I’m on another major low as I sit and “wait”… You all know “The Wait”, waiting for the correct dose to feel level. Wait, as I wonder… Will I cry tomorrow?? Be happy?? Or be angry?? Wait and watch as I lose new friends, as they are scared away from all of this.
Every day is a battle just to get through. I want to talk to someone and yet I’m scared as hell to!!! What if I say something (wrong)! Then I’m stuck, once again apologizing and not being able to fully explain that it was my thyroid talking!!
So I’m sitting at home doing nothing…Waiting! Waiting…Waiting…..
