Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this board, I have been reading loads of your messages. I am convinced I may have a thyroid problem but don't want to see my GP. He is a lovely doctor but I don't want to seem like a silly, hypochondriac woman demanding blood tests!!
I am constantly exhausted, have lately been sleeping until 11am everyday. I attend university twice a week & work about 10 hours a week in a shop. It isn't much but it wipes me out! 3 years ago I worked full time, 8am-5.30pm everyday. No way I could do that now.
I have no concentration at all, am trying to study but can't focus on anything. I literally waste hours everyday wandering around the house in a daze doing nothing.
I have patches of dry skin on my arms and legs, my nails are very weak and my hair is dull. I feel down a lot and get irritable over stupid things. My libido has dropped considerably and my eyes always feel sore and tired. My feet ache constantly!
I went to the doctor about a year ago and was diagnosed with depression but was never fully convinced this was correct. I want to see my GP but am worried my record will just lead him to re-prescribe anti-depressants.
I just feel like a lazy ,bloated slob. I can't seem to do anything and get so tired and have no motivation to finish tasks. I don't feel normal.
Thankyou for all the messages here. Maybe it is the thyroid or maybe its in my head! Who know, all I do know is that I don't feel right. 3 years ago I worked full time, did gardening every evening and went clubbing every 3-4 weeks until 4am. I just wish I still had that energy.
