Before I began care with Alternacare, I experienced fatigue, weight gain, aches, constipation, difficulty keeping up with work and home responsibilities, lack of excitement for the future, and intermittent sleep difficulties. When I was at my worst, I felt exhausted all the time. I basically, went to work then wanted to sleep the rest of the day. I was tired even when I slept well, and I felt anxious and overwhelmed with life. I was convinced that my health would continue to decline over time. Feeling so poorly sucked all the joy out of my life. I have a wonderful husband and family but felt guilty for not being able to turn things around. I had a lot of responsibilities and struggled daily just keeping up with the minimum amount of tasks such as cooking dinner and grocery shopping. I could not make it through the day without a nap. I have always been health conscious and have tried to eat healthy food and exercise, but my sweets cravings were hard to control. This contributed to a downward spiral. I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidsim approximately 10 years ago and have been taking medication since. In the past couple of years, my symptoms increased and my blood tests resulted in my physician doubling my medication. I decided I would not accept the possibility that over time I would have to take more and more medication.
Alternacare has helped me feel and look like a different person! I have lost weight, have energy, can keep up with my responsibilities, and I am excited for the future! I have lost 35 pounds. My recent blood tests showed improvement. I am working towards getting off my thyroid medication. I am sleeping better and feeling more rested. My anxiety has improved. —Gwyn Groh
