Hello Jessie – I have hypothyroidism. I was diagnosed when I was in high school. I’ve been taking Levo for over a decade now and am doing absolutely fine. I did gain weight and have also lost it with regular diet and exercise. Your metabolism still exists, fear not. You just need to eat appropriately e.g., four smaller meals with more protein and good fats. Processed stuff is terrible for us though I still have it occasionally. It is all about having a healthy lifestyle, as cliched as it sounds this is completely true. 🙂
As far as confidence is concerned, it is something that you will get over time. I used to feel awkward about my looks sometimes and I’ve realized that when I choose to love myself just as I am, I make better choices and feel better. The cycle repeats itself. There are always going to be people who seem prettier or smarter but what matters is how you play the cards given to you. I’ve been there so I can say with complete conviction that you can reach a place of genuine confidence.
I also recommend yoga and some form of regular meditation. Good luck. Keep smiling. 🙂
