What is going on!?!

I have not been myself lately, at all. I've been feeling completely disconnected from myself and not interested in anything. As of my last appointment with my Endo, my levels are within normal range. I've been having some added stress, so I have expected to not fully feel myself, but what I've been experiencing is way beyond what I think is just stress. I was completely unaware of any of it though, until recently, when my husband told me what he's noticed.  Now I can see it pretty clearly...

I got my levels checked a couple weeks ago and they are "within normal range", but I did notice that they are elevated from when I was taken off my medication last year.

I've been looking into Depression with Graves, being Euthyroid, and I'm feeling like I am learning about Graves from scratch. I don't remember anything I learned when first diagnosed! Reading the findings, I feel so overwhelmed and I want to curl up in a ball and cry. I don't want to believe that this disease is still affecting me. I want to be done with it!!!


  1. I pretty much felt the same way with the disease. I had been a follower on your blog for a lot of time, however, I resumed blogging only now to find time to read. I went into remission, but the point is - if your levels are normal, then the only things remaining are psychological impediments. Free yourself. Learn to not think about it at all. Start enjoying things that you love - go out and enjoy! :) This way, you can spend quality time with yourself and recover faster than worrying about it or make wishing to get done with it. I do pretty much the same, and I don't think it has caused me discomfort since then.

    1. Thank you for your comment. I have been able to let go of the psychological impediments and have felt better about life in general lately. :) I now have more physical symptoms than ever before and they have been coming with a vengeance. I know that I will make it through, and I appreciate your support. :)
