Anyone have problems/have had problems with hypothyroidism?

I just got back some test results that showed I have a mildly underactive thyroid which can cause depression (I have), weight gain (yep), and an array of other things. I was just wondering if any of you ladies are familiar with hypothyroidism.

  • Yep, I have Hashimoto's disease. It's an autoimmune disease that causes hypothyroidism. Brittle nails, hair on your head loss, hair on your face growth (totally makes sense lol), sensitivity to cold, difficulty losing weight, fertility problems. I don't have too many symptoms thanks to my meds.
