Tell Us About Your Thyroid Condition and Your Fatigue I've had hypothyroidism for maybe 20 years now. In the process of getting the right dose of Synthroid, I gained over 50 pounds. It was horrible. I've battled fatigue AND depression ever since.
What Are You Doing to Deal With Your Fatigue Getting daily exercise helps a lot. Even brief bursts of cardio off and on through the day helps if I don't have time for a full-on work out. Example: if I'm dragging it helps to put on some fast, fun music and get moving for a few minutes! Things like varying my daily routine, getting enough quality sleep, and taking time out to 'create' help to boost me mentally. I find that if I'm doing things that keep me motivated, it also lessens the fatigue. Creating seems to use a part of my brain that makes me happy.
Advice Get some exercise every day and vary your routine. Do 1 thing different today. Get enough sleep, find a way that works for you. Create! Scrapbook a page, or even elements for a page; bead some fun jewelry; write a story and share it with a friend; create a new recipe; carve out at least 10 minutes to do something you don't have to do... something that's fun... and share it with someone! You might be surprised how much that helps!
