WOW i had a thyroid crash i have had friends say that but never understood it till now had one and wow.. You know i'm so sick of people saying "WELL YOU DON'T LOOK SICK" You know if they had seen me 3 weeks ago i think they would changed there minds. I'm busting my butt and doing good for years and losing weight and then bang my thyroid stops working and for all of you that deal with this you know i put on 5 pounds in 3 days. With being tried and people saying your not eating enough or your not drinking enough water or your just lazy and get up and do something...people don't understand that thyroid tried is alot different then being just tried. I don't know about anyone else on here but i have heart problems and my muscles take alot longer to recover after an afternoon at the gym.

For all the people that don't deal with this and don't think that it's a serious thing here are or were my symptoms for years until i got on the Med's i hope this will help for you to understand.

  Because of a really bad doc who took me off thyroid med, I felt suicidal end ended up in Myxedema Coma. After being put back on meds, I los 60 lbs, mostly fluid. PLEASE keep on top of your thyroid and NEVER STOP TAKING YOUR MED... emoticon emoticon

    OMG!!! I'm kinda going through the same thing. I've been diagnosed with an enlarged thyroid and just had an ultrasound done last Saturday. I can totally understand what you're going through and am relieved that finally someone understands what I'm going though!!! The weight gain, the lack of a sex drive, the always being cold, the high cholesterol, etc. etc. Thank you for posting this!!

I put this down on my journal and then i read it and thought i would share it.
You know every day i come on here and answer peoples questions and give advice on the same thing i want to know and i tell them what i think and i know that what i'm saying makes sence to me but it's so easy to tell someone else to do it but i can't or i don't do it when i know what i have to do.

I was talking to someone on here this morning that had to do with an ED question and just this morning i was thinking to myself i should just go back to the way i use to eat well not eat or B/P and i really think that answering that question for her made me say WOW what am i doing what am i even thinking of doing, it's so amazing how other people help others and don't even realize that they are doing it. SP you rock.

    You can do this girl!!!! Don't give in to the binging and purging and not eating at all. You will feel a lot worse in the end. Believe me I know. I've been down that path. Your body will ache after awhile. I'm sure you've experienced that. If you feel like doing that message me on here right away.

A new challenge in my life.

Tuesday, February 05, 2008

Well today is Shrove Tuesday and as i was lying in bed i was thinking what will i give up for Lent? Well i have decided that every year i give up coffee,chocolate whatever only to go back after the 40 days so i have decided to give up BINGE EATING. And i'm going to start today because it is so called" FAT TUESDAY" and i will be at my childrens school cooking pancakes for the whole school then tonight we are having a fundraiser and we will be cooking pancakes and sasuages for alittle over 500 people.
Last year i ate 25 pancakes and if there is anyone out there that has never had a problem with binge eating that's nothing, I have been dealing with an ED for about 20 years now Binge/Purge and Starving myself.
At the end of these 40 days which i know is not going to be a cake walk LOL i know that i can do it because the last time i tried i didn't have all of you guys and the withdraws are not good so with the help of you and me i know i can beat this and not go back after 40 days. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox;)

    What a great way to spend your 40 days. FOR YOU!!!! I know that you can do it. Put a very small picture of yourself in your pocket and when you think you might want that pancake take a peek at it and remind your self of what your goal is. Or better yet put a cross in your pocket and pull it out and look at it. Have a big drink of water. Good luck!!!!

On Saturday i was getting ready for my workout at the gym which i have become addicted to and there was a trainer in the locker room and she asked me how much weight i lost and to me it looks like none but i don't go on to scales because of a past ED the numbers still have to much of an impact on me so i guess it will have to weight until March when i go see one of the ladys where i go get weighed and mesured yuk.
