I am not as young as you are, but I do still consider myself young
I'm 28 & I am currently on two different thyroid medications that I will be on for the rest of my life. I was also given two scripts for high BP on Monday, however I have not started taken them yet as I am meeting with a new doctor tomorrow and will most likely get a different script. It really overwhelmed me on Monday because I felt a lot like you - I'm only 28 and I'm staring down a medicine cabinet just to keep myself going. Besides the fact that I've just got little glitches all over my body in addition to the thyroid & BP issues, I have poor eyesight, psoriasis, I'm prone to cysts and anxiety. However, I have to remind myself that I've got soooo much that other people don't have and I'm sure they'd trade for my problems anyday. Besdies, it's much better to get this stuff treated early than it is to wait until too much damage has already been done.
