-i suffer from hypothyroidism-
Hypothyroidism, or an under-active thyroid, is when my thyroid can't produce enough thyroxine.
This results in lethargy, stunted growth, depression, dry skin/brittle nails, and memory loss.
It's a lifelong condition.
There's no cure.
But it can be treated.
I was on hormone medication for it years ago, but once I started treatment for my depression I no longer needed it.
Because I don't feel the lethargy, I forget I have this condition. It's times like these, when my already thin nails bend and snap, that I remember.
If these symptoms sound familiar to you (and you aren't currently suffering from anorexia) please go and check. All it takes is one simple blood test.
You won't regret it.
