THYROID …. For those that don’t know or understand what a person goes thru with Hypothyroidism…this explains a lot.
It’s been a few years since you found out that I’ll be with you for a lifetime.
I’m very elusive, I don’t always show up when you analyze your blood.
People around you can’t see or hear me, but your body does. I can attack you anywhere and any way you choose. For example cold, tingling or hand pain.
Remember when you had so much energy and had so much fun! Well, sometimes, I participate in your energy and I leave you exhausted … A little of your memory or part of your concentration.
I can make you sleep for many hours, or I can cause insomnia. Make you shiver or feel cold or hot when the temperature is normal for everyone else.
I can make your feet or hands swell, your face and eyelids swell. I can make you feel very anxious / or with panic attacks.
I am very complicated…
Do you remember the sudden mood? Yes, it’s me…
Crying for no reason? Annoyed for no reason? And yes, it’s me too.
I can make your hair fall out, become dry and brittle, cause acne, cause dry skin, I have no boundaries.
I will make you gain weight no matter what or how much you eat.
Doing activities like walking or doing other exercises will not take me out of your body, but it will help calm me down.
I know, you started going to the Endocrinologist to get me out!
Treatments and controls help me relax for periods.
I can make you have high cholesterol, or have blood pressure problems, or other problems… That’s me.
Breathing troubles? Elevated liver enzymes? Dental or gum problems? Me too…
You will feel tired … and your family and friends will be tired of hearing over and over how much “I feel bad” “I’m too tired”.
They do not know that I withdraw some of the energy your body and mind need daily to perform their activities.
Then, just when you think you have everything under control for once…BAM, mother nature throws a curve ball at you, you once again go into a tail spin. Now, add on the hot flashes and even more moodiness… Hot, tired and cranky.
They will not understand why this disease attacks your body from the tip of your hair to the tip of your foot. Every cell and organ in your body requires the proper amount of thyroid hormones that I decrease.
So don’t stop taking these pills every morning the doctor gave you … they replace the diminished T4 hormone that you need.
Although I don’t like them very much because I can’t do so many jokes, I know it will help you feel better. 😞🙏🏻
With love from your thyroid
