Thanks for writing your query to us. 

Yes,stress isn’t good for your health. Continuous stress leads to high levels of stress hormones, which can have a negative impact on thyroid function, especially if levels stay high over the long-term.

But one thing you should know that you are not the only one who is going through this stress. So don't worry. At the same time you are the only one who can help yourself to deal with stress. 

To counter your daily stress there are many ways to deal with your daily stress— some requiring more of a commitment— to help your body relax.
- Learn deep breathing exercises.
- Schedule a massage or day at the spa.
- Try learning yoga or other meditative practices.
- Taking a peaceful walk each evening. Exercise is wonderful, but over-exercising can put your adrenal glands back into stress mode and elevate cortisol levels, so take it easy. Do any form of exercise which you enjoy doing.
- Just be happy & don't worry.

Continue your medicines which your doctor has given without missing dose.

I hope I have answered your query. Take care.
