Hello Thyroid Family,
How is your mental health at the moment?
Many of us are experiencing extra anxiety with the current pandemic situation. I was personally diagnosed with postnatal depression the other week, as the world has been such a weird place to have a newborn baby in the last few months. I'm facing a lot of the usual struggles of a new parent, coupled with being a parent who has a chronic illness and at times struggles to keep up. But with the current pandemic situation on top of these, there has also been a profound lack of support available. This has all been quite tough.
I haven't forgotten about the audiobook for You, Me and Hypothyroidism - don't worry. It was due to be released early 2020, but I am still yet to find the time to sign it off and get it released. I'm sure once my mental health is back on track I'll be able to finish that project.
It was also Mother's Day in many countries around the world last week and you can read my open letter to all the hypothyroid mothers here.
