I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in Spring of 2014 and Hashimotos Thyroiditis in Winter of 2015. As I made doctors’ appointments and read the extensive resources and support available to me, I realized that most resources, quite rightly, seek to share medical information. But there were many times I sought a voice that reckons with the emotional daily toll of this autoimmune disease and the ramifications in our lives—our relationships, our careers, and our sense of self.
My intention is to write about my experiences to help process and heal. In no way am I an expert or do I claim professional qualifications medically or psychologically. Rather, I hope my writing provides benefit for others. You are a hero, and you are not alone on the journey.
Now go grab your cape and take on the day.
