    Welcome to the forum — and thanks for the encouraging words!

    There are several regular posters here who have had been treated for thyroidectomy. Hopefully, you will get some responses from them, but you can also read their stories by using the “search posts” feature in the top right-hand corner of the screen and searching for keywords including “thyroidectomy”, “surgery”, etc..

    I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing if your body is telling you to slow down! Before my diagnosis, I used to constantly skimp on sleep to try and get things done. Now I really try to make myself a priority…I am much more conscious of the commitments that I make, and I try (as much as possible) to avoid people and activities that drain my energy instead of *giving* me energy.

    Take care!
