Difficult Mornings with Hypothyroidism

Today was a difficult morning.

It’s not unusual – most mornings with hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue are difficult.

I almost didn’t get out of bed due to being very fatigued and experiencing muscle pain because I visited family yesterday for a cup of tea and then stayed up until 11pm. It’s crazy that we ‘pay’ for doing something so minor to others.

But I’m dressed and off to work. 

Every step I made this morning that lead to me leaving the house, I could have said ‘nah’ to and gone back to bed – turning the alarm off snooze, getting out of bed, having a shower, getting dressed, applying a small amount of makeup, making up my lunch and finally, putting my shoes on and heading out the door.

Thyroid patients are more resilient than they often realise and, today, I’m trying to be kinder to myself. I’m trying to feel proud of doing what others just do without an issue.

The fact we get out of bed is an accomplishment. And if you don’t feel up to that today, then that’s ok too.

Mornings are the worst.

Do you ever feel like this?

One thought on “Difficult Mornings with Hypothyroidism

  1. You should definitely be very proud, not just of getting up this morning and going about your day but of realising the need to be kinder to yourself! I often tell others that just doing one small thing is a big achievement and that if you don’t feel up to doing anything then that’s okay too, but it’s easier said than done. We can be very hard on yourselves. Great post, and that’s such a cute top! 🙂
