Hi, Ya-all.
Trying to Re-gain "ME" again.
I've been lost so to speak from the ravages of un-diagnosed THYROID Disease.
It ruined my health, my life both personal & professional. I had no stamina couldn't work, was tired all the time, sick, moody, felt like I was losing my mind, my memory, or both including my self confidence, both in my personal & professional life. I gained oodles of weight, and spiraled, spiraled further out of control..Till finally after I said to my Doctor "Look, LOOK Me.."
And there I sat on the table feeling 80 years old, like a slug, I gained so much weight in such a short time, my digestion was basically stopped, I was so packed, swollen and uncomfortable, dark circles under my eyes, no matter how much sleep I got, I felt like my neck, was someone else's, like I was carrying a water balloon, under my chin or wearing a perpetual turtle neck. I was sick & tired, sick & tired of being sick & tired. Tired of them telling me, "Your young, snap out of it" or "Well you just have to lose weight"...
Like I wasn't already trying ! I was so sick I could barely eat, everything had stopped in my body, & was shutting down. I felt like I was gonna make it much longer..

Then she (my Dr.) Really looked at me and she ordered the tests , the same tests I had 2+ years prior & 3+ years prior to that,... I had, had a thyroid problem all along,
and it was taking it's toll & literally killing me, slowly..
robbing me of me, robbing my family of me & robbing me of my life & work...
