Hypo makes me want to scream sometimes.
I’ve decided one of the hardest parts of dealing with thyroid disease is dealing with the lack of knowledge and understanding from most of the planet. Whether it’s trying to get people at work (high stressful job) to understand that, no brain fog and extreme fatigue is not a choice. My “great” endo, who started great–just tried to lecture me about losing weight (it’s obvious she’s never had an extra pound on her a day in her life)–while I”m still hanging out in the upper “5’s” (which she says is “normal”). I already deal with IBS and asthma, which most people do not grasp–but the lack of understanding about hypo makes me want to scream sometimes. Especially when I’m doing the best I can , and it’s never enough!!!!
