Well, we're in to the month of May which brings with it Thyroid Awareness Week and World Thyroid Day. Keep an eye out for my articles coming out to raise awareness on those. They're great opportunities to make more people aware of thyroid conditions.
For those of you who have been following my own personal experiences with thyroid disease, you may already know that my main exercise these days is simply walking. I make sure to walk for at least 45 minutes per day, though I manage to do over an hour on many days too. I like walking because it can be taken at my own pace and is easier on my hypothyroid body than the sorts of exercise I used to do that made my health worse. However, this week I have gone back to dance class (something I stopped doing four years ago when my health got really bad) and hopefully it has gone OK... check out my social media for updates on that. I really want to diversify my exercise and keep on getting fitter!
I was on three podcasts last week! Yes, three!!! Talking about thyroid disease, issues with treatment and testing, my own experiences and more. All three were very different, so I'll be sure to share them with you when they come out. A link to the first is included below in this newsletter.
Being gluten-free for my thyroid condition, I haven't had a doughnut in years, so I gave this recipe a go when I discovered it last week and they were amazing. I thought I'd include it incase any of you also miss a baked treat from time to time! The recipe is also dairy-free.
In terms of mental health and wellbeing, I had my first Step 4 NHS session last week, which seems promising. Hopefully they'll be able to help me overcome the dips in mood and ongoing anxiety longterm. Unravelling my past, they seem to think a lot of my childhood experiences are to blame unfortunately.
