I never felt *bad* before, but it was the lack of weight loss that spurred me to going to the doctors. I'm with you ... why fix what isn't broken? Theoretically I had mild hashi's and I assume hypothyroid, but nothing was terribly out of range besides TSH maybe.
Journaling could be helping your mood. I feel better telling [someone] about whatever is bugging me, and then it doesn't bug me as much -- vs letting it stew and that only bugs me more! I hear ya on the lack of productivity. Another reason why I can't wait to move out of this apartment and into my future one in a few months, i'm convinced this one sucks the energy right out of me.
