• About: Hi, I am almost 48 years old. I have 6 children, my sweet husband of 26 yrs and a horse and doggie. Since 16 years old I have been dealing with Hypothyroidism. The first Dr. I went to at that young age basically just said you have a thyroid problem, take these meds. No follow up, no talking about it. Just take these meds. Well, try telling that to a 16 year old girl and expect it to happen, right?! Ya! That's what I thought. So, after I was married and had my first child and working for Orthopedic Surgeons, I had symptoms I could no longer ignore. I had my Dr. So some Tests and she found my TSH to BE 160. YES!!! 160. No mistake, we sent it twice...Needless to say, it's been a journey since then. The past two years now has been a roller coaster for me. I now have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, we thought it could have been Lupus, (my father has LUPUS). All the meds I take make it worse and I get soooo sick, I'm now trying to find a more natural way to help myself. I have been playing with whole foods and staying away from dairy, caffeine, animal protein, but lately it has been so hard. And I am not seeing the person I know in the mirror. She is so bloated it hurts and it looks like I'm having twins anyway now. I really believe the food I am eating at the moment are/is giving me serious reactions. I am needing a reboot and a good start to my new found self. (Don't care much for the lesser me). I have restarted me. My eating, My sleep, My exercise, My brain, My life is totally not the person I used to be. Multitasking and doing everything for everyone is no longer. I miss her. The only thing I know I can do right now besides cry (which I do) is laugh. Laughing hurts less than crying. Crying gives me a headache.
