I was told several years ago that I have an extremely slow thryoid and as i get older I get more tired and weak. I find this strange because I am only 26. My financee who is the same age has has his thyriod taken out because of a growth and he seems to have more energy than me. I am tired so often that I have difficulty finding energy to play with my 2 year old and to even hold a job. Does anyone have a similar issue or understands what I mean?

I can relate. I was diagnosed with an under active thyroid when I was pregnant with my last child who is now 4 years old. I have noticed that I am more tired now then when I was first diagnosed. I have been actually getting really frustrated because I am tired of feeling tired all the time and to top it off I do not have the energy to exercise to lose weight or just to plain feel better!! I totally understand where you are coming from. I am trying now to concentrate on a good healthy diet to see if this will help me feel better.
