Help please

From: cindyh - 1 year 15 weeks ago

Does anyone respond to the community post. It's very disappointing to not have some respond. If you have hyoerthyroid disease/ Graves disease then someone on on here should be able to understand what I'm going through and be willing to talk with me about it. I say this not out of rudeness but just out of need to speak with someone that can understand I feel so alone so by myself even though I'm in a house full of people, I still feel so alone, I feel I'm around nobody that really understands they say they do and in some respects I can tell this day do but when I get into these rages of temper their level of understanding is not there and I think my boyfriend of 17 years has definitely grown very tired of me and tired of my actions and I can't blame him I don't blame him I blame me. I do hope that someone will respond to this post into the ones that I posted before this one I really need someone that understands to talk to me baby help me understand how to deal with my emotions because I'm not dealing with them well. I say things that I don't know that I'm going to say they just come out of my mouth and I made shocked as everybody else but it's like I have no control and that bothers me because I've always been a believer that everybody can control what they say what they do and here I am now not able to do that. Very sick of this disease and very sick of me I don't even like me anymore

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Is this good advice?

Dear Cindyh. There is nothing worse than trying to navigate life with a chronic condition that nobody around you can understand or truly relate to. The best way to gain the support you are seeking is to join a support group. You can see is there is a group near enough to you to attend in person at :, or search for an online group if this doesn't work. You don't have to go through this alone. The depression and isolation can often be worse than trying to deal with the thyroid symptoms. We hope this helps. EW Editorial Board.
