Thread: I’ve been dealing with some health issues for a while and I need to make a thread about this.

Friends, if you’re feeling off and you can’t figure out why or If your normal health issues are ramped up to 100 - go get your thyroid tested.

It honestly saved my life
2: I had made a thread about feeling mildly depressed all my life so I went on anti depressants and I felt the little things get better. It wasn’t as life changing but it was great.

One day, four or so months ago - all of that disappeared overnight.
3: My sleep apnea isn’t new but my wife noticed it get progressively worse recently AND I started having unbearable insomnia.

After starting thyroid meds 3 weeks ago, my insomnia is gone and I’m able to sleep in bed for the first time in 4 years.
4: I had mysteriously gained 25 pounds recently and was incredibly bloated....

The weight gain has stopped and the swelling is gone.
5: My tongue swelling was a huge annoyance and the Internet told me to avoid coffee because it inflamed problematic thyroids Now that I’m on meds and the insomnia is gone I have gone from ~3 coffees a day for 2 months or so to one a week.

Go get your thyroid tested.
6: Worst of all - I was putting my youngest to Bed and then either falling asleep after a shower or I would open my computer and start doing research and then fall asleep sitting up. I wasn’t spending ANY time during the week with my wife

Go get your thyroid checked.
7: Worst of all is that when I did fall asleep I would wake up in weird positions -sitting up with my legs crossed on the floor, doggystyle (lol) or kneeling. I was ALWAYS tired, and because I wasn’t sleeping I was snacking at night.

Go get your thyroid checked.
8: Last, my ability and desire to write totally disappeared. I’ve got enough research and outlines for a dozen stories and at least two related books but I was just staring at all like I had wasted a few years.

But, I’m back.

Also, go get your thyroid checked. #Health
