Close to losing my job
I was put on T4 about 4 yrs ago and added T3 about 1 yr ago. T4 did very little to alleviate many symptoms, but T3 has improved my quality of life by 1000%. The problem is, I continue to have memory problems and am having a lot of trouble at work with errors which cost my company money.
One bit of information I've gleaned through my self-education is that T3 carries oxygen from the blood stream into the cells of the body where metabolism happens. If this is true, then hypothyroidism is basically oxygen deprivation in every cell of the body including the brain cells. We all know what happens to the brain when deprived of oxygen for too long - cell death. And brain cells are not replaced when they die, unlike all the other cells of the body.
What I'm getting at is that I'm very afraid that I have suffered irreparable brain damage which I'm not going to recover from and will continue to make errors at work which will result in my eventual dismissal. My company is aware of my health problems and are trying to work with me to improve my performance, but they will only continue with that so far before they give up on me.
Does anyone have experience with losing a job because of their hypothyroidism? I'm looking for any advise on how to protect myself. Are there any programs out there to help me?

i have had an underactive thyroid for just over a year now, im only 21 but recentlytook myself off the medication. my levels are still fine but the symptoms have returned. i didnt like the way i felt on them should i start taking them again or just see what blood test results state?
I think my body clock is all wrong. I don't sleep well at night, am exhausted during most of the day and just now this evening I'm starting to wake up a bit. Does anyone else have this kind of problem? How do I get a more conventional sleeping pattern, or am I just a night owl?
