I have hypothyroidism. In fact I was born without a thyroid. I don't have insurance and cant afford to pay all kinds of money to make a doctors appointment and then pay for the lab work. I haven't taken my pills for a week now. Someone told me that not taking it will just make me tired. I was told I need to be on it for the rest of my life though. Will it be okay if I stop taking it altogether??
