For those of you that know I have been struggling with some health issues the past few years (i.e. tiredness, weight gain, depression, etc.) I FINALLY found a doctor that did blood work and believes I have hypothyroidism!!!!

This is good news because now you can be treated and I hope soon you will feel better...with the fatigue, depression, and weight. I have done blood work and I have borderline, but no doc will treat me for hypothyroidism. I also think that is why I have some pain issues. Keep us posted on how you are doing. Congrats on a diagnosis!

Hey Heidi,

brilliant news. Now you can get the correct treatment and have a more normal life. It's just a shame it has taken so long to get to this point. I am off to do the happy dance for you.

It's a serious medical condition so just be careful with the meds. I know it must be a relief of sort to know that there's a biological explanation behind depression but hypothyroidism is no joke either.
