I need my life back

From: Itsjustme - 10 years 4 weeks ago

I'm only 26 and have been chronically ill for half my life. I've been diagnosed with IBS, Anxiety, Ulcerative colitis, etc. The list goes way on. My mother also had problems of her own, significantly different than my, but had surgery done from Dr Norman a few years ago and has been great since. Problem is, she has insurance, I don't. I've been looking at the symptoms between hypO and hypERthyroidism and I have like a mix match between them both. I am soooo lost right and and just want a normal life back. I feel like I am dying!

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Is this good advice?

You sound so similar to me...

I'm nineteen and half of my life has been spent chronically ill as well. I've also got Ibs, anxiety and I've also got fibromyalgia, endometriosis and interstitial cystitis. It's now in talks that I probably have a hyperthyroid problem. I know exactly how you feel about wanting your life back, because so do I. It's awful feeling like this and missing so much of our young lives!
