Understanding the thyroid battle.......

Rate this Entry
Hello, my partner suffers with an underactive thyroid and i want to try to understand how this affects her. I have done my own research into the illness and i understand the affect it has on her body and immune system etc etc and in regards to all that everything i am currently doing to help is helping make things a little easier for her. I love her with every bit of me but i just don't understand how it affects her emotions and moods and everything in regards to even her mental state, she is coping brilliantly and refuses to be beaten but im sure there is more i could be doing. Anybody who can help me understand how this affects her as a person please shed the information this way i need all the advice and information u can give me... thanks in advanced.

    What's her background Harris and how old is she? Married? Children? Did it happen after children or suddenly started by itself? Is she on any medication?

    If she is hypo she'll have hormones going up and down and that surely will effect her moods no matter what she tries to do

    Speaking as someone with an underactive thyroid I know how it affect your mood and I have an understanding partner who helps alot. I get very irritable when I'm tired and that's most of the time, I have no sex drive whatsoever. fears and worries are out of proportion - I've stopped driving because my reactions are slow & I started panicking as a result - this means my partner has to do all the driving. What medication is your wife taking? I've recently started on the natural thyroid route and noticed improvements (see my blog). It really is a debilitating illness that has huge consequences on well-being and the people around you, I think I've worn my partner to a frazzle which is part of the reason I'm doing everything I can to find effective treatment - good luck, it would be good to hear how things are now.
