I hope I make you laugh out loud.
Because life is funny.
Life should be funny.
Even when you are a single parent and you end up being diagnosed with Hashimotos disease.
All the women in my family tend to get it.
I hope it’s not because we are redheads.
My favorite pastime is telling funny stories, so don’t expect a down-and-out story of hypthyroidism. Let’s face it, lots of people get up everyday and face this world with all kinds of problems. Mine is just a small one by comparison.
I noticed that there is so much unhappy talk about thyroid disease on the Internet that I want to talk about the possibilities — not the difficulties. Yeah, it sucks that we have to deal with this, but it’s not rectal cancer.
I want to show you that you can laugh in the face of thyroid disease and find a way to enjoy life. My mother does it and she is 83. I think her thyroid was giving her issues back when I was a young girl but she was never given any drugs — yet she managed to raise me and my brother; take care of my father when he was dying of cancer while working as a nurse, and take care of my step-father when he was dying of heart disease. She has painted her own house by herself and has talked about walking the SF Bay to Breakers race with me.
She lives a very full, rich life.
So can you.
I hope to show you how…if you will let me.
