Hello. I'm sorry you're having to struggle with this issue. It's difficult to be diagnosed with a condition that alters one's sense of vigor and vitality. For what it's worth, hypothyroidism
due to Hashimoto's thyroiditis
is quite common, and people in your situation lead perfectly normal lives once their thyroid dosage is adjusted. In contrast, untreated hypothyroidism causes myriad problems, including depression
, cold intolerance, fatigue
, hair loss, impaired mental function, weight gain, heart failure
and possibly even death. Taking one pill daily is a small price to pay for your continued health.
If your depression persists even when your hypothyroidism is corrected, ask your doctor about counseling. Many people need assistance dealing with chronic diseases, even if they're easily treated.
My best to you.
