Everyone here has felt the same as you at one time or another; even feeling sorry for ourselves.
I take meds for my thyroid as well, and it took about
a month for me to start feeling better with it. How long have you been taking the thyroxine?
It is scary to take on more meds. I feel dread everytime a new one gets added, but when my body starts feeling better I am gateful.
Don't be afraid to go to your family for support or to tell them that you just don't have the strength to help them. Your body is under enough stress as it is, you don't need to take on other peoples. They will understand, and they just might surprise you with their strength. Having that kind of support can make a big difference in how you feel physically and mentally. Sometimes I'll cry on my bestfriends shoulder for 2 minutes, and afterward I feel 100% better.
I hope you feel better soon.
