I think that is the hardest thing about it all. We don't LOOK sick, but good lord we are sick. My friends and family have been awesome but it's my husband that doesn't get it sometimes. I have SO much to handle in my life- I have 2 kids (a very high needs 11 month old and a 3 year old), I work full time from home, I handle everything in the house (bills, cooking, shopping, laundry, cars, garden, cleaning, etc.) and he is not home often he works 8am to 8pm 6 days a week. He doesn't get that I'm no longer super mom and need help.
Ug. this thyroid thing SUCKS.
