I'd read many of emmie's posts here for quite some time and had no idea I'd be in the same baffling boat at one point. Unfortunately, NOTHING will "fix" such a situation other than going straight to the source of the problem and addressing the thyroid deficiencies. No amount of supplements, dietary changes, fitness regimens, or combinations of the three will compensate for the lack of thyroid hormone. I tried them all (repeatedly) and kick myself for wasting so much time and energy trying to fix it myself before addressing what I'd hoped wasn't the issue. (Thank God for those of you who've posted about your situation - reading them helped snap me out of my insanity/denial and get my butt to the ENDO!)
