A Year of Knowing

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Today is one year of knowing that I am hypothyroid, and the day I started Levothyroxine (synthroid). I just have to say how thankful I am that there is a little tiny pill that takes care of my thyroid problem. This was the first winter in the last 5yrs that my feet and hands didn’t crack and bleed from dryness and I wasn’t freezing all the time. I also didn't have the continual winter cold. My joints, especially my knees, no longer ache, and the swelling in my face and fingers is gone. My eyebrows have grown back, now my mother has stopped telling me to quit plucking them( I wasn’t- but I don’t think she believed me.). My hair has regained some of its thickness, it’s still dry though- but there are far worse things to suffer from then dry hair. I feel like I have done a lot of healing this year. I have a lot more energy. Life is GOOD!

    It's great that your health has improved so much with your synthroid. It brings home to me that I could be a lot worse off if I was not on synthroid. I still have dry winter skin that cracks and bleeds. I shed like crazy but since my hair has always been very thick it is not that noticeable to anyone but me. I will enjoy getting to know you!
