Another Post I Hadn't Planned On Writing

Need I elaborate any more?
Probably not.
I am having flashbacks from the chemo days:
I don't have a desire to eat.
I am so tired, I was up at 8:30 this morning and napped from 10 -noon. I am so tired...........but sleep fitfully at night.
The only thing I accomplished today was washing the dishes. I am going to bake some potatoes, and heat up veggies and leftover chicken for dinner. 
I should have gone grocery shopping...but that would've meant getting dressed and leaving the house. I haven't left this house for 3 days.
The smell of the soap hubby uses for his shower makes me wanna puke.

Sorry for all of the negativity but it is getting rather depressing....taking all these pills with their side effects. Just one month ago I felt like superwoman.....
I've been checking out the side effects of my thyroid med - Levothyroxin. 
Should I even be taking this? It looks like it will just add to my problems.
In the morning if I roll over in bed before getting up I am dizzy.
I am looking into Thyromin by Young Living.
Does anyone else suffer from hypothyroidism? What works for you?
Yes, I am getting as sick of writing these "I feel so awful" posts as you are of reading them. Soon, very soon, that will change.
Hope your week is off to a great start!


  1. You are definitely NOT one to complain so I KNOW you must feel REALLY rotten. I feel so badly for you. Sure hope the docs can get this figured out, and soon. i take thyroid meds but mine is because I had my thyroid removed many years ago. That said, I'm of no help by way of suggestions. God bless ya GF and I'll definitely add you to my prayer list. ((Hugs))

  2. I'm commenting again. I don't know if my info is helpful but thought I would share it. When I began thyroid meds they started me on "synthroid". It made me feel awful and made my heart go wild. Finally I was changed to "Armour thyroid" and my problems were over. Now I never accept a generic of any type. Armour thyroid is actually made from cw thyroid, but I don't care what it is as it works for me. You might ask your doc if that is something you might try. Othe md are syntheticss, so there is a difference and you need to find what works for you.

  3. Oh dear Linda, don't apologize, just a little over a year ago my hubby had chemo and radiation treatments. I do understand and am praying for you to be better soon. Thank you for your kind comment on my post today.
    Hugs and Love

  4. Even though my issues are different, some things you just got to let out.

  5. Oh dear friend, I will pray that you feel better! That each day will bring you good health! We all have days when we are sick and tired of being sick and tired! Just keep your eyes on the sky and keep praying! HUGS!

  6. My mom was on levothyroxine ore problems, but each person is different. I know exactly how you feel about being tired all the time. I wish I had an answer, but my fatigue is getting worse. I am concerned about your breathing though. Hope they find out what is causing all this soon and can treat you!

  7. Hi,
    I will pray you will get well soon.
    Please keep us posted.

  8. sorry you are feeling so bad, praying for you. I have hypothyroidism too, on the same medicine as you. they have had me on it for years, does not help.
