I recently considered leaving a thyroid support site as one of the administrators was being what I thought a bit rude with me. They kept insinuating that I'm stupid, thick and ignoring people's advice but I haven't been doing that at all. In fact I've also been giving advice and answers to other people and I have done nothing to offend this person.
I ask a question and when they respond they give me an answer which I find a bit smart-alecky, saying things like I should make more of an effort to look after myself and so on - and I feel very overwhelmed by it all!
My TSH is high, my iron, folate and Vitamin D are low, my Vitamin B12 is just about in range although low, and I've also been suspected of having low magnesium, zinc and selenium and have been recommended other things to help me with this! This is getting too much for me! It isn't that I don't want to listen to their advice or take note, as I have, but I'm also looking for work, attending reflexology and art classes on top of attending thyroid support group once every month!
I feel as though my feelings are unjustified right now. :(
