Please answer the following questions in a descriptive manner after careful analysis and recollection of previous experiences and happenings.

1. Describe your main suffering? My main physical suffering would be achy knees after an average intensity workout. That pain no longer exists but
prior to beginning thyroid medicines my legs were my largest physical indication of something being wrong. Another physical suffering that still
exists is pain in my jaw/teeth. I believe I grind my teeth and so my jaw or teeth in the molar region will hurt annoyingly bad often.

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body? I do not really experience many other physical sufferings. Occasionally I will have mild headaches or
stomach or chest pains.

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings? I do not have mental sufferings associated with those physical
sufferings. The mental suffering that I do have is a constant battle with my physical appearance, more specifically my body weight. I feel exhausted
thinking about my weight so often but I am conflicted because I feel really close to my goal weight but cannot bring it down anymore. My weight fluctuates
constantly and its almost torture worrying about it.

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst? When I am at my worst, mentally I feel tired and like I want to give up and sit in silence for a while. I feel
as if I have overexerted myself in every possible way and that I need a break. Physically I feel tired and my teeth will ache, I will feel bloated and discontent.

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease? It all begin about Freshman year of high school, so when I was 15 years old. In middle school I recall being in great shape and happy, I cannot recall any issues. Although, I did have an anxiety issue in my very early teens, to the point where my mom would have to sit in bed with me until I fell asleep. That was a short lived issue but still significant. I have tied the way I feel to a hypo thyroid disease I was diagnosed with, Hoshimotos.

6. Which time of the day you are worst? Honestly, I am an optimistic and happy person mostly every time of every day. I cannot complain of much. If I had to choose a time of the day where I am at my worst I would say in the evenings. In the evenings my days have settled and I would be studying or hanging out. I begin to feel cravings for different foods, whether out of boredom or something deeper, and I sometimes start to question my future as if I am wanting to change paths but not sure which direction to go.

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same? Things that aggravate it would be lack of sleep, stress with school, poor diet, emotional arguments with loved ones, in terms of physically if I over workout. Things that ameliorate it are a moderate level workout, listening to music, watching a funny movie, hangout with old friends or my siblings, taking a nap.

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?
No, I seem to adjust to change fairly well. I have learned to handle stress really well too, considering my schedule these days I think I do a great job managing it all. Obviously when I get less sleep because of school and work responsibilities that alters how I feel physically and usually affects my diet too. When it comes to bloating or tiredness I do think it changes with menses. Though, I feel most of it is within on a very basic molecular level and we just havent figured it out yet.

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?
I feel great in all of them! I love hot weather and the warmth of the sunshine on my skin but I also enjoy the cold weather and the way my body feels in it. I feel better in dry over humid weather.

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc. My general mental set up used to fluctuate drastically, I would be moody, anxious, on edge, irritable, all of these things before getting on thyroid medications and vitamins. At this current time in my life I would describe my mental set up as, a bit obsessive compulsive, eager for success, moderately strung, easily offended when it comes to certain people, assertive, easily relaxed, and focused.

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm? I love thunderstorms if I am able to be in a warm dry area, relaxing and not having to study. I find them calming. Yet, I do have a big fear of nature which I find interesting. One of the greatest things I am scared of is nature because humans have no control over it and it is by far the most powerful thing out there. So before and during a thunderstorm I would say I feel average nothing odd.

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times? Not really. I do not like that sort of attention. I do not like people feeling pity for me, if anything I would rather the attention for doing something great.

- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc? Nope.

- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
weeping, talking to one self etc? Not really...I do pop my knuckles and other joints often but I believe that is from playing sports. I grind my teeth in my sleep. I sometimes clench my jaw even in the day time until I realize it.

- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife? Well I am 21 and in college, I am not married nor do I have any children. I have 4 siblings and I adore them all! 3 sisters and 1 brother. I am especially close to my sisters, we tell each other everything, we have so much fun and laugh a lot when we are together. I feel very protective of my younger sister and want her to be happy more than my own happiness. She is very very special to me. I am close with my brother, I love and care about him, but we do not talk often and I do feel less superior than him. I am very close with my parents also. They are the best parents anyone could ask for. I feel like I owe everything to them, that they raised me the best I could imagine. There have been times where I felt left out with all these people around, like my opinions weren't heard and I was forgotten about, but I believe that was due to immaturity and it has passed now. I love all my family, relative and extended, and want to care for them any time I can. I feel the same about my friends, I am the type of person that when I meet someone and we hit it off I want to be around them constantly! I care a lot for my childhood friends and we never could separate as friends.

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?
I am afraid of sharks and being bit by something in the ocean. I am afraid of failing at anything, whether it be school or in the grander things of life. I am afraid of not connecting with my soul mate and starting a family. Most of my fears are superficial I am a pretty optimistic person and remain hopeful so I do not fear much. I do not dream of any situation repeatedly, for the simple fact that I do not remember my dreams.

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions? I crave chocolate and caffeine. I crave a good steak occasionally. I live in a college apartment on a budget yet I spend my little money on organic foods so it is hard to eat really lavish meals often. I do crave sugar though, frustratingly, most sugary foods. My aversions include: spicy foods, olives, seafood

13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive? normal

14. How if your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive? This is tough to answer because we no not what is normal but only what is normal to us. I would say my hunger is normal, but my cravings are excessive.

15. Is there any kind of food which your body can’t stand? no

16. Is your sweat normal or less or more? Where does it sweat more: Head, Trunk or Limbs? My sweat is normal. I sweat most probably on my head and on my limbs.

17. How is your bowel movement and stool type? normal

18. How well do you sleep? Do you have a particular posture of sleeping? I sleep wonderfully. I am able to sleep in any situation for the most part. I tend to sleep the most on my back but that is not because I have to just how it happens. I am a very deep sleeper.

19. Do you think you are able to satisfy your sexual desires in general? yes

20. How do you think you are different from others, if at all? I think I am different in that I am more driven and focused and serious than others. I know what I want, so I think, and I work my butt off at mostly any costs to get it. I get satisfaction from pushing myself and succeeding. I also am content with being alone and quiet time, I love spending time with friends but I am just as happy with a quiet night. I feel most people are afraid to be alone.

21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication? I take nature throid thyroid medication. No I have not noticed any bad symptoms. I have noticed increase in energy, decrease in physical pains, and a steadiness in moods.

22. What major diseases are running in your family? There's a long line of hypothyroid disease but that is it.

23. Describe, how do you look like? Describe your overall appearance. I am 5'6' and weigh around 140lbs. I have dirty blonde hair and hazel eyes, my skin tone fluctuates with seasons and sun exposure. I am muscularly toned and fit.
