Dear Thyroid, Thanks to you, I am Annoyed!
Hi thyroid yes it’s me.
The unhappy one who thought that cold and swollen legs and feet were the only symptoms I would have to deal with. Yes that is what I thought until I was put on a T4 med. You are the reason why I am hypothyroid. I have Hashimotos thyroiditis and was diagnosed in 2008 when I was just 23.
I now deal with weight gain thanks to you and the meds, too. I did lose some weight, only to find out that I put the pounds back on and maybe a little more. I am working hard to get rid of the extra pounds but I’m not really sure if they are leaving or if they are staying.
I have encountered other symptoms like not getting my period for a month, only for it to surprise me when I least expect it and for my muscles to be tired when I didn’t do anything, but after I get a massage or do some yoga my muscles are back to feeling normal again.
I was diagnosed with high blood pressure last year and I really believe you are the reason behind that as well.
I went through a period of still being hungry even after I had already eaten. What is the matter with you?
Some members of my family were in shock when I still wanted more to eat!
I am annoyed that you would even think about increasing my appetite. When I am trying to get some weight off not put any more on! I’m glad I found out that you are also the reason behind that to. Now if you would let me lose some weight I would be happy. I guess that won’t happen because after all you are my thyroid and you can do to me whatever you want whenever you want, but I won’t let you stop
me from doing what I want when I want.
Thyroid? The battle is on!
