I'm 36 years old in the US. I developed a big fu**ing goiter at age 17. I had radioactive iodine treatment. Took two runs to shrink the goiter. It's been gone ever since. I suffer from anxiety, depression, fatigue, substance abuse (self medicating) I've never held jobs or made a career for myself. Luckily I've had a beautiful wonderful open minded wife to support me. Although my level of functioning has proved to be a strain on our marriage, and I'm hanging on by a thread right now. Which is why I have to FEEL BETTER..now or never. I'm currently in a rehab program to curb/kill the self medicating and Get to the root of the problem, which I believe is my thyroid disease. I want to find an endocrinilogist that will be helpful. The endo I had back in the day was insensitive and basically laughed when I told her about my symptoms. Lol.
I would like to know if there's any Males out there that have had similar experiences such as mine. Any advice on armour thyroid compared to Synthroid would be very helpful. I'm in South Carolina USA.
Thanks for any input.
