Hey there, I also have hypothyroidism. I understand it's fairly common, especially in women. Are you female?
The symptoms you mention -- fatigue, no motivation, etc. -- suggest that your doc might have to increase the level of synthroid. I started out on a low dose, but as my hypothyroidism got worse the dose had to be upped. It usually takes months for the doc to figure out the right dose for you.
It sucks to have to be on a medication for the rest of your life, doesn't it? At least with acne, I think, OK, *someday* it will go away. But the thyroid problem will never go away.
