Thyroid

This post isn’t really an interesting one; It’s more of a rant.  Lately I have been feeling “off’. I can’t really describe it, just off.  I have been very lethargic, moody, and I have put on more weight in the past 3 months than I have in the past 3 years.  I am not sure if this is due to stress with my wedding coming up, or if it is something more.  

I did a little bit of research, and I related to most of the symptoms associated with hypothyroidism.  Hypothyroidism, if you don’t know, is when your thyroid isn’t producing enough of the hormone thyroxine, which slows down your metabolism and whatnot.  It typically doesn’t effect people under 40, but can in some circumstances.  I did some family investigating since I am adopted and don’t know much of their medical backgrounds.  It turns out that both my birth grandma, birth mom, and both of my birth sisters have hypothyroidism!  That was enough for me to call my doctor to schedule a blood test.  

I went to the lab for my blood test 2 days ago, and I am still anxiously waiting for my results.  It may be nothing, or it may be something… As bad as it sounds, I hope I do have it so I can get my body under control again.  I have been feeling like I don’t know what is happening with it.  

Let’s hope I hear something today, or soon!  

Do any of you suffer from hypothyroidism?  Any advice?

xoxo, Emily
