Thyroid Condition Dilemma!?
I am 19 years old, without insurance, broke and trying my damnedest to get my life back in order. I have always had a weight problem, but I have always been an unnaturally healthy eater and incredibly active person. I have my moments, yes, but my greatest weakness is, simply, pure cocoa. That’s it. I don’t like cakes or pastries or candies, I never have. Just pure cocoa (I know, gross, right?) and mango -my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
I’m currently severely overweight, despite going to the gym all the time and eating all my fruits and veggies. It has been suggested to me to go on a diet. But I can’t. Diets have meal plans and I’m allergic to so many things it’d be such a waste to go on a diet.
I’m Vegan, and before anyone gets on my case about it, I’m allergic to dairy, meat, eggs, honey, shellfish, water fish, leather, wool, the cow itself and all bugs. I was genetically made, as it seems, to be Vegan. Also, I have a high sensitivity to gluten, yeast and anything wheat derived. Its hard enough keeping up with all of this, but I do, somehow.
But now the thyroid. Only recently did I find out about it, before my insurance was gone (my dad passed away recently and he was my source of insurance), but I never got the chance to get medication (we didn’t have enough money at the time) and I, now, have neither insurance nor money.
I’m exhausted, wearing parkas in summer, getting bigger, and so on and so forth. It is unbearable, I don’t feel like myself and it just seems to be getting worse.
Are there natural ways to tend to this?
I meant just plain ol’ fish. Don’t know why I felt the need to add water in there, I’m pretty sure there are no land fish.
Thank you all for your great advice!
I currently have no family to call on, per se. There is family in existence, but those who still talk to me don’t have the means to pay for a doctor visit, and the rest, well, just wont talk to me. My relationship with a lot of my family is strained, so I can’t really go to them, and my mother can’t even afford having me living with her, much less taking me to see a doctor.
How much will it cost me to go to an emergency room?
Also, I have cut out gluten entirely. It was hard, but I managed. I make everything from scratch, read the labels on the things I can’t and research the ingredients I’m not sure about. I work very hard at it.
