Wed, 23 Oct 2013 11:01:26 EST Daily moan and updates to let off steam. http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x55072x46041809 Started this team today. My sight is minimal because of the Palsy. My right eye is not able to close. Both eyes water all the time. despite meds my balance is shot and I cant go out in the street on my own. The Dr said this is separate from the palsy but I am not so sure. God knows what my thyroid is doing because I certainly do not. The days are long and lonely. I live alone. When I do have visitors I am just too tired to cope. reading writing and watching TV have to be severely restricted... Sun, 15 Jan 2012 11:50:26 EST Weight management. http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x55072x46041733 I was already struggling with my weight before I got the hypothyroid. Then in the space of about 2 weeks I put on about 16 pounds. I could not believe it. Then all the other illnesses kicked in. In the space of a month I have completely broken down. Because of the palsy I am back to liquidized food, and drinking through a straw. I am a vegetarian and now do not know if I should just soft peddle till I feel better or start some sort of an eating plan according to the illnesses I now have. <BR...

Maybe we could brainstorm a little and find some results that might be of use to ease some or all of our symptoms. <BR> <BR> Myrna.. Sun, 15 Jan 2012 11:39:19 EST Introduce Yourself. http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x55072x46041619 My name is Myrna. I am 62 years old. I have constant migraines hypothyroid huge weight gain, vertigo and now after 10 years a second dose of bells palsy. I never recovered from the first. I am terrified that I will be left with even worse disabilities than before. I know these conditions are not life threatening, but they are certainly life restricting, and painful, and disfiguring, and confidence destroying. <BR> <BR> Myrna. Sun, 15 Jan 2012 11:36:52 EST
