I'm 18 years old and will turn 19 this summer. I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism (hashimoto) when I was 13 years old. Now I'm having trouble dealing with myself and the depression as really stared to kick in.
Not to give my life story but a few details. At six my sister was born with a rare disorder. At 9 my body was attacked by a virus and peanuts. And last at 13, I was told I had Hashimoto's and I would die at 30.
My old doctor torn me down and has cause me to have no confidence at all. There is no control over this at all.
I have a loving family, but i haven't told them the full truth on how I feel because of other things in the family. I've at last found a doctor who cares and who is sending me to the right people.
Yet I need advice, I need a little support from people who know, maybe, how I feel.
I want to be a normal young adult. Go into college and able to live my self. No hide behind a book or journal like I do now.
Please help me.
