The only reason I would want to go on thyroid med is to speed up my recovery. I am so tired of being tired. I am tired of my hair falling out. I just want some normalcy in my life. I am only taking 4 drops of Lugols a day, plus painting 3 or 4 more. When I went up to 12 drops a day I could hardly function as a human being.
More than medication, I guess I am looking for validation. If I had a confirmed diagnosis then I my family would know that I am not just mad, or lazy, or mentally ill or whatever the hell they think. Then I could say that I have Hashimoto's or whatever, and they would be understanding instead of condescending.
It's not that I want to take medication. I just want to feel better.
