Following the worst flare up I'd ever encountered a few weeks ago, I'm pleased to say that I'm back on the mend now and things are going well. Looking back, I recognise that I hammered way too many triggers in one day which led to my body crashing the next day and whereas I'm usually very good at recognising these and managing my health so flare ups don't happen, I slipped that weekend.
When you have a long stretch of really good health days, which for me had been most of this year, you can start to get a little too comfortable and take your foot off the peddle. This recent flare up has just reminded me that my health is an on going thing and I have to be conscious of it every day to keep it in check.
Flare up triggers for me are overexerting myself physically, not getting enough sleep, eating junk food, being glutened and alcohol. What are they for you?
My book is getting closer to a reality! I sent an early unfinalised version out to 12 thyroid patients this week who are providing me with any final feedback before we go to print. The release date is currently set as Friday 23rd November, so it should reach you before Christmas. You can preorder the eBook now and purchase the physical book on the 23rd November. If it's not showing as available in your country yet, check back in a day or so.
