    Doctor didn't give me any medication for it. he referred me to hospital, the referrals arrived, i just need to book an appointment for myself lol - they're gonna scan my thyroid gland to see how bad it is... increases my appetite so much and i gain alot of weight from it

    do you get low moods from it??
    Do you gain weight though? My understanding was that because your metabolism is literally on fiyah :headfire: you burn it super fast and therefore it's tough to gain weight?

    Thyroid conditions, admittedly though, are not an exact science by any means.

    When I am overmedicated though (which mimics a sort of synthetic form of hyperthyroidism) I can eat loads and still lose weight rapidly. However, palpitations, insomnia, and actually the constant hunger aren't so fun.

    Yes indeed, hypothyroidism is characterised by being a bit low because essentially your body is just 'slower', but taking hormone replacement keeps me just fine most of the time.

    I assure you; it's a right pain. Officials always comment on it whenever checking ID anywhere and I have to explain the origin for the 9999th time.

    I eat enough for a family of four sometimes, i've been over weight/obese all of my life - so some people can gain it.. I recently lost 4 stones but gained back 1 stone in like 2/3 weeks.. LOL

    Yeah i get insomnia and at night heart beats so fast, used to get extremely anxious too - but controlled that. The low moods are inevitable though - never leaves, some days are worse than others.

    Here are some not so fun facts about myself.

    1. My great-great grandfather fought in WW1 with the Allies and his body was never retrieved. At least he didn't live to see his son fight for the Nazis. I essentially have a conflicted family history.
    2. When my parents went swoosh in the UK and abandoned me without knowing if I would survive encephalitis, my grandparents took me in and my grandfather essentially wanted me to enrol in the military when I grew older. He kidnapped me when I was 7 in the woods and we lived fo about two weeks out of what we found. Both of them rationed my food for a while (good old Commie memories) as they wanted me to be accustomed with very little.
    3. As an outcome of my grandfather's upbringing, I used to run towards boys in primary school with a massive dictionary and ask them why didn't they want to play with me. I hated being called a tomboy but I was one in all but name. (I even liked wrestling older boys :ashamed2:)
    5. When my aunt eventually adopted me for almost two years, she converted me to opera and ballet. I had the opportunity to become a pretty good performer in either, but my parents decided to return from abroad and force me to stick to school and become top of the class at math.
    4. That happened for a year, when my parents were pretty sure I was to become a prodigy in algebra (100% in every assessment that year), then I discovered anatomy. For the following 7 years I was determined to become a doctor, won science olympiads in anatomy, discussed with actual doctors in hospitals (out of work hours) about medical conditions, essentially identified my grandmother's non-hodgkin lymphoma in an early enough stage to still have her thank me for taking her (almost by force) to the hospital that day, started tutoring seminars prior to biology exams where I would help some of my colleagues pass. Some apparently ended up loving biology so much from then on, that they're now keeping my seat warm in medical school.
    5. My parents insisted that I took mathematics and programming as a profile in high school, despite me wanting to take either natural sciences (because biology and chem used to be my life) or humanities, as I loved Latin and History. I essentially have a baccalaureate diploma in Mathematics- Advanced Calculus and Algebra, Anatomy, and Literature with which I can wipe my arse, as I'm now doing History and IR
    6. I picked up a brown bear cub in front of a mama bear (she was about 100m away) and lived to tell the story. Take that, Glass.
